A highly trained colorectal and laparoscopic surgeon in Portsmouth, Hampshire

With specialist training in colorectal and advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) pelvic surgery, Mr Khan offers expert diagnosis and treatment for conditions affecting the anus, rectum, colon and small intestine.  As a keen proponent of minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic, natural orifice and single-incision surgery, he is actively involved in research and in the training of students, doctors and consultants, both nationally and internationally.

Colorectal conditions treated by Mr Jim Khan

Mr Khan offers investigation and treatment for a wide range of colorectal conditions, including:

  • Haemorrhoids (piles)
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Anal fistulae and fissures
  • Bowel polyps
  • Rectal and colon cancer
  • Pilonidal sinus disease
  • Rectal and bowel prolapse
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and colitis)
  • Diverticular diseaseSP

Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEMS) in Hampshire

Mr Khan is skilled in transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEMS), a new minimally invasive technique to remove difficult non-cancerous growths (polyps) from the rectum that cannot be removed by colonoscopy.  Performed by inserting a special microscope and instruments directly into the rectum via the anus, the surgery does not involve any incisions to the anus or abdomen, and avoids the need for a major operation involving the complete removal of the rectum, or incomplete treatment by means of burning or scraping away. The procedure may also be used for small, early rectal tumours.

The THD procedure: a minimally invasive treatment for piles in Portsmouth

Transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialisation (THD) is an incision-less method for reducing the blood flow to haemorrhoids, causing them to shrink.  Also known haemorrhoidal artery ligation (HALO) or Doppler-guided ligation, and approved by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), the THD procedure is virtually painless and is associated with a high level of satisfaction in treated patients.

Mr Khan provides expert treatment and management of haemorrhoids, including the THD procedure at the Portsmouth Haemorrhoid Centre.
