Meet Mrs Christine Craig

I am an experienced female Colorectal and General Surgical Consultant. I qualified in Leeds in 1998 then returned to my home town of Manchester. 

My NHS post is at Manchester Royal Infirmary but I also provide outreach clinics, endoscopy and Day Case Surgery at Trafford and Altrincham General Hospitals.

As a Colorectal Surgeon, I specialise in diagnosing and treating bowel cancers and other bowel conditions but I also deal with all those bottom/bum issues that you don't really wish to discuss with anyone.....

I am JAG accredited in endoscopy (Flexible Sigmoidoscopy and Colonoscopy) and an experienced laparoscopic surgeon. 

Take a look at my reviews here  and in a Newspaper here

Feel free to get in touch to schedule a consultation.

Initial Consultation

The Care You Deserve

Home: CV

You may be referred by your GP or make a scheduled appointment yourself. 

Although as a Colorectal surgeon I perform major bowel surgery, it is more the nuisance bottom, belly and bowel problems I deal with privately - those conditions that many people are embarrassed to talk about and have been putting off seeing anyone for months or even years.

I will make you feel less embarrassed, more at ease and will arrange appropriate investigations and treatment at a time to suit you.

For years, patients have depended on me to provide this valuable service in the NHS, I am now offering this and other specialised options to anyone in need of a Private Surgeon they can trust.

I’m dedicated to building long-lasting relationships based on trust and medical integrity with every single patient.
