Treatments we offer

Many general surgical procedures can be carried out endoscopically or laparoscopically enabling a faster return to normal activities and minimal scar and issue damage.

Abscess incision and drainage

If a skin abscess becomes too large and infected you may need to have it dealt with in surgery in order to stop it growing further.


The procedure takes place under general anaesthetic and can be performed using either a ‘laporoscopic’ or ‘open’ technique.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

This is surgery to remove the gallbladder using a laparoscopic technique.

Umbilical hernia repair

During umbilical hernia repair, the surgeon makes a small cut of about 2–3cm at the base of the belly button, and pushes the fatty lump or loop of bowel back into the abdomen (tummy). The muscle layers at the weak spot in the abdominal wall, where the hernia came through, are stitched together to strengthen them. In some cases, a special mesh patch may be placed in the abdominal wall to strengthen the area if the hernia was particularly large.

Sports hernia/gilmore's groin repair

This is a severe musculo-tendinous injury of the groin, which can be successfully treated by the surgical restoration of normal anatomy.

Inguinal hernia repair

This is the most common type of hernia repair and is a lump or swelling in the groin. Surgery can be either an open or laparoscopic approach.

Linx® for gastroesophageal reflux

The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and uses keyhole surgery (laparoscopy) to implant magnetic beads around the lower part of the oesophagus.

Nissen fundoplication (laparoscopic) for gastroesophageal reflux

This is one of the most common surgical techniques used to treat the condition. It uses keyhole surgery, avoiding the need for a large incision.
