What is general surgery?

The general surgeons who practise at The Wesley Hospital provide a broad spectrum of specialty and subspecialty surgery for patients who have conditions ranging from hernias and appendicitis to challenging and life-threatening conditions of the chest, abdomen, liver and stomach.

Our surgeons perform advanced, minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery for the surgical treatment of most abdominal disorders, including hernias, and conditions of the stomach, intestines, gall bladder and spleen. Many procedures can be safely performed as day surgery, allowing patients to return home the same day, after a recovery period.

The Wesley Hospital is also a Centre of Excellence in Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery, with skilled general surgeons providing weight loss surgery.
