General surgery

Expert care from highly skilled and specialist surgeons

General surgery focuses on the abdominal area and intestines including the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts. Our general surgeons also perform surgical procedures for patients with skin lesions, hernias and varicose veins.

Most of our General Surgeons perform minimally-invasive laparoscopic or key-hole procedures, which can help reduce recovery time.
