Mr Rhodri Codd
Consultant Colorectal & General Surgeon
MBBCh FRCS (Eng) MSc MAcadMEd
I qualified from the University of Wales College of Medicine in Cardiff in 2002 and have completed my specialist training in General and Colorectal surgery within the Wales Deanery. I have since completed a Royal College of Surgeons approved Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship endorsed by the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (ALSGBI) and the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI). This fellowship, with Professor Sagar in Leeds, enabled me to gain expertise in laparoscopic (keyhole) colorectal surgery, complex pelvic oncology surgery, inflammatory bowel disease and complex proctology.
I have also completed an Advanced Pelvic Oncology Fellowship in Morriston Hospital, Swansea and was awarded a travelling fellowship which enabled me to visit the Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
I am a JAG (Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy) accredited colonoscopist and am therefore competent to a standard commensurate with independent specialist practice.
I also have an MSC in Medical Education, am a member of the Academy of Medical Educators and am regularly involved in training other doctors and students in many different capacities.
Special clinical interests
Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery - I have completed a dedicated Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship endorsed by the Royal College of Surgeons of England which has trained me in keyhole surgery for colonic and rectal disorders. Performing operations with smaller incisions is a key element of enhanced recovery in colorectal and general surgery and results in less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stay and a quicker return to normal daily activities.
Colorectal (bowel) and Pelvic Oncology - the Fellowship I completed in Leeds with Professor Sagar and also the Fellowship in Morriston Hospital, Swansea have provided me with a high level of training in the management of colorectal (bowel) cancers.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease - I have an interest in the surgical management of patients with Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Again, many of these operations can be performed laparoscopically. I am a JAG (Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy) accredited colonoscopist and am therefore competent to a standard commensurate with independent specialist practice.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease
When away from work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children and getting out into the Welsh countryside whenever possible. I enjoy sport and was a keen rugby player. I played for the Cardiff Medicals RFC and also played for Clwb Rygbi Cymru Caerdydd who are a Welsh speaking side based in Cardiff. Now, whenever possible, I enjoy cycling both on the road and on my mountain bike.
