General Surgery

The Department of General Surgery provides comprehensive surgical services, including breast surgery, bariatric and metabolic surgery for obesity, colorectal surgery, upper gastro-intestinal surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, surgical oncology and surgical endoscopy for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, as well as vascular and endovascular surgery. Our dedicated trauma team also provides Trauma service that provides life-saving care.

We are a major provider of surgical care for both inpatient and outpatient services with full 24-hour on-site coverage for acute surgical conditions. There is an increasing number of procedures which we now treat as day surgery, without the need of an overnight hospital stay, thus ensuring a more comfortable and faster recovery.

All these services are delivered by our surgical teams led by highly qualified consultants with a focus on minimally invasive surgical techniques (keyhole surgery).

A multi-disciplinary approach has been developed in all the various areas, drawing together highly dedicated and specialised teams. This ensures delivery of only the best care for all our patients.
