A summary of some of the more routinely undertaken General Surgery procedures is shown below:
Colorectal conditions affect the bowel, colon, pelvis and rectum and those that may require surgery include colorectal cancers and external haemorrhoids and fissures.
An endoscopy is one of the methods we use to diagnose internal conditions. A small flexible tube is inserted under sedation in order to investigate symptoms. The types of endoscopy most routinely undertaken include sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and gastroscopy.
Gallstones develop from small deposits of cholesterol that form in the gall bladder. In the majority of cases, they do not cause any symptoms or issues. Should a gallstone become trapped or inflamed, it will need to be surgically removed.
Gastrointestinal conditions that require surgery include liver disease, pancreatic and biliary disorders or acid reflux.
