General Surgery - Overview

What is general surgery?

General surgery is a surgical discipline that involves surgical procedures performed on the intestines, liver, colon, pancreas, gall bladder, stomach, thyroid gland, and several other organs.

General surgeons may be trained to focus on one of many areas. Some general surgeons are dedicated to transplant surgery and must be ready at any time to harvest organs from suitable donors. Other general surgeons may focus on trauma surgery, breast surgery, colorectal surgery or vascular surgery.

Our team is led by capable surgeons who will provide expertise and customise the treatment care plans best suited for you in the following sub-specialties:

  • Head and neck

Our approach
