Gastroenterology and upper GI treatment offered at Springfield Hospital

Dr Stephen Grainger practises at Springfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex; his clinical interests are:


Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis

Dr Grainger manages one of the largest cohorts of patients with inflammatory bowel disease in North East London and Essex – all the more challenging latterly with the advent of potent biological therapies. He is also an advisor to NHS Evidence on IBD topics.


Complex irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome is a misery for some patients and cannot be measured. In Dr Grainger’s experience a structured approach to the uncertainties of diagnosis and treatment often yields success for patients and their doctors.


Liver disorders

There is an epidemic of fatty liver disease but, fortunately, now there are the beginnings of effective treatments for this potentially harmful condition.
