General Surgery

General Surgery


A modern septic theatre in the outpatient area and a well-equipped operation theatre to carryout different kinds of surgical procedures are available. Our surgeons use both the conventional open abdomen, as well as modern minimal access procedures like laparoscopy as appropriate for the patient's condition. The benefits of all the new laparoscopic procedures include less postoperative pain and therefore, less pain medication, faster healing for a quicker return home, and smaller, less noticeable scars after healing; most of the time these are short term admissions and categorized 'day-care' surgery.

Routine general surgery encompasses most minor procedures, and includes drainage of abscesses; amputations; repair of fissures/fistula's-in-ano; appendectomy; biopsies (open/partial, excision, and fine needle aspiration cytology); circumcision; hernioplasty / herniorraphy including mesh repairs; management of haemorrhoids by both surgical excision as well as banding; heel spur and corn removal; mastectomy, fibroadenoma excision; varicose veins; fasciotomy; wound debridement; duodenal perforation and such-like.

Basic renal procedures can be carried out.

Pathological conditions such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, fibroids, vaginal and vulval disorders, hormonal disturbances e.g. poly-cystic ovarian disease, and cancers related to the female reproductive organs are diagnosable and manageable to a certain extent.
