GENERAL SURGERY is a wide-ranging area of surgery with surgeons that have wide range of knowledge and skills to deal with all kinds of surgical emergencies, with an emphasis on acute abdominal problems. General surgeons are essential in emergency cases requiring immediate surgery on presentation as well as elective cases as listed below. Our general surgery clinics cover consultations for the diagnosis and medical/surgical management of acute abdominal pain, management of chest and abdominal trauma, soft tissue tumours, intraperitoneal tumours, thyroid gland pathologies, hernia repairs, minimum invasive surgeries, obesity surgeries and endoscopic diagnostic procedure (Gastroscopy and colonoscopy). When seen in clinic, you may be followed up for long term conditions or as part of your work up to prepare you for your surgical procedures. You may also be seen as a follow up post operatively to review your symptoms and ensure your wound has healed.
