About Dr Morris

Practices minimally invasive surgery including advanced laparoscopic techniques and robotic surgery

Dr Morris is a Brisbane-based Specialist Colorectal and General Surgeon who completed his General Surgery training in QLD, then undertook further Colorectal Surgery training at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne, and in the Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in England.

He holds a Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS), is a Member of the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery of the RACS, a Provisional Member of the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand, and a Conjoint Committee accredited colonoscopist. He is a Senior Lecturer with the University of Queensland, and has been appointed the Surgical Supervisor of Training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Dr Morris can take care of all your general or colorectal surgical needs

He sees and treats public patients from Brisbane and afar, as part of the Colorectal Surgery team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, and sees private patients in Greenslopes and Cleveland.

He looks after a range of colorectal surgery conditions – including those affecting the bowel (inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, cancer)  the anus and rectum (e.g. haemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal fistulas, rectal prolapse, incontinence, defecatory disorders), and those general surgical conditions including hernias and gallbladder surgery.

Dr Morris is always making sure he is giving the best possible treatment by undergoing ongoing training and development both in and outside of Australia.

 

He is trained in advanced laparoscopic techniques, including single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) and minimally invasive techniques for the management of rectal tumours, haemorrhoids and anal fistulas. In 2016, Dr Morris completed his robotic training on the new da Vinci robotic system in Australia and in South Korea and offers robotic surgery.

His current research interests include minimally invasive techniques for anal fistula surgery, and he has spoken at both local and international meetings on the ‘Modern Management of Anal Fistula’. In his practice, he has introduced the new OTSC Proctology (clip) treatment for anal fistulas in a closely audited setting. He has a particular interest in the surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease and this also forms a major component of his public practice.

Dr Morris is also a Conjoint Committee accredited colonoscopist and performs colonoscopy to investigate symptoms, remove polyps and to exclude or screen for bowel cancer.

Reflecting his general surgery training, Dr Morris also assesses and treats conditions effecting the abdomen in both an elective and emergency setting (e.g. appendicitis, gallbladder problems, groin hernias, abdominal wall hernias).
