General Surgery at Fitzwilliam Hospital
General surgery is the surgical treatment of common health conditions that often focuses on acute abdominal problems.
Here at Fitzwilliam Hospital we offer the best care from your first appointment through to post-surgery aftercare for a range of surgical treatments for soft tissue abdominal disorders including the stomach, small bowel, liver, colon, gall bladder and bile ducts.
We offer convenient outpatient clinics with our consultant general surgeons. We have x-ray, MRI, CT scanning and endoscopy facilities to investigate abdominal problems.
Our skilled general surgeons regularly perform operations for many common abdominal complaints including: hernias, gallstones, appendicitis, anorectal problems (haemorrhoids, cancer, perianal disease, anal fissures and fistula), pilonidal sinus, lumps and bumps including lipomas, and intestinal disorders (inflammatory bowel disease, polyps, bowel and colorectal cancer).
Most often minimal invasive surgery, also known as keyhole surgery, is performed. Open surgery is offered where appropriate. We offer advanced laparoscopic surgery including single-port laparoscopic surgery. Following surgery, you’ll be in the best of hands, with our caring specialist nursing staff, dieticians, and the reassurance that a Resident Medical Officer is available 24 hours a day.
