General Surgery

A general surgeon has specialised knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, pre-operative, operative, and post-operative management.

  • Anorectal Surgery Colorectal surgery is a field in medicine, dealing with disorders of the rectum, anus, and colon.
  • Biopsy/Excision of Lymph Node An open biopsy is surgery to remove all or part of the lymph node.
  • Breast Surgery This surgery can be utilised for both reconstructive and cosmetic requirements. Following breast cancer, breast reconstruction techniques offer women with a choice to restore their body, and play an important role in rehabilitation. Additional cosmetic related surgery can include breast augmentation utilising implants, breast reduction and implant removal, and breast lift surgery for a more youthful appearance.
  • Colonoscopy Colonoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine (rectum and colon).
  • Excision of Cyst, Lesion, Mass, Tumor, etc. Shave excision is a simple procedure done to remove growths such as lesions, tumors, and moles on the skin. The growth is removed with a sharp razor and soothed with antibiotic ointment to encourage healing. Sometimes an electrode is used to “feather” the edges and make the scar less noticeable.
  • Hemorrhoidectomy A hemorrhoidectomy is surgery to remove internal or external hemorrhoids that are extensive or severe.
  • Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy There are two main ways of removing a gallbladder: laparoscopic cholecystectomy, several small cuts (incisions) are made in your tummy (abdomen) and fine surgical instruments are used to access and remove your gallbladder and open cholecystectomy, a single, larger incision is made in your tummy to access and remove your gallbladder
  • Laparoscopic Hernia Repair General anesthesia is given, and a small cut (incision) is made in or just below the navel. The abdomen is inflated with air so that the surgeon can see the abdominal (belly) organs.
  • Open Hernia Repair For open hernia repair surgery, a single long incision is made in the groin. If the hernia is bulging out of the abdominal wall (a direct hernia), the bulge is pushed back into place.
  • Port Placement A port consists of a reservoir compartment (the portal) that has a silicone bubble for needle insertion (the septum), with an attached plastic tube (the catheter). The device is surgically inserted under the skin in the upper chest or in the arm and appears as a bump under the skin.
  • Temporal Artery Biopsy Temporal artery biopsy is the primary modality for establishing a diagnosis of giant cell (temporal) arteritis.
