Anti-reflux & hiatal hernia surgery

Gastro-oeophageal reflux disease [GORD] is an increasingly common condition, where acid from the stomach leaks up into the oesophagus.

Hiatus and diaphragmatic hernias

Hiatus hernias can be repaired using a minimally invasive approach, reducing the thoracic portion of the stomach to its correct anatomical position within the abdomen.

Breast surgery

Breast-conserving surgery is a surgical procedure used to remove early breast cancers, while maintaining the natural breast shape.

Thyroid surgery

Thyroid surgery may be recommended to manage suspicious nodules or large goitres causing obstructive symptoms.

Colorectal surgery

Early cancers can be managed with minimally invasive surgery to remove part of the colon and the draining lymph nodes.

Abdominal wall and groin hernias

Most abdominal wall and groin hernias can be repaired using a keyhole technique, which reduces post operative pain and recovery time.

Gallbladder surgery

Gallstone disease can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating and infection.  This can be managed with minimally invasive surgery to remove the gallbladder.

Endoscopy - gastroscopy & colonoscopy

A gastroscopy is a procedure used to examine the inside of the oesophagus, stomach and first part of the small bowel. A colonoscopy examines  inside of the colon and rectum for abnormalities or signs of disease.
