The opening follows a colorectal symposium at BHP last month (story here).
Directed by surgeon Dr Art Hiranyakas, the new institute specializes in the diagnoses and advanced treatment of a multitude of colorectal diseases including colon and prostate cancer.
Dr Hiranyakas is also certified and experienced in the use of da Vinci robotic surgical systems which enable surgeons to perform operations that are much less invasive resulting in more comfort and more rapid recovery.
For the full story and interview with Dr Art, be sure to pick up a copy of the Phuket Gazette, out on stands January 18.
