Surgical Unit

Experience and competence in an array of surgical disciplines

Our unit offers specialised surgical services catering to both adults and children, those who require urgent emergency treatments as well as those who opt for elective surgery.

Every case is unique to us and will be assessed, managed and treated with utmost care by our panel of skilled surgeons, nurses and support team.

Minimally invasive procedures for speedy recovery

Our team specialises in surgical procedures on the breasts and endocrine system, intestines, liver, colon, pancreas, gallbladder, stomach and the thyroid gland, among others. For your convenience, minimally invasive techniques are preferred.

Our Services:

Breast and endocrine surgery

This procedure involves the removal of breast tumours and lymph nodes while trying to save as much of the breast as possible.

Endocrine procedures focus on the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands.

Breast reconstruction surgery

This procedure recreates the shape and contour of your breast after you have gone through a mastectomy or lumpectomy. It can be done at the time of the mastectomy (immediate reconstruction) or later, once the incisions have healed and therapies are completed (delayed reconstruction).

Broadly, there are two basic breast reconstruction techniques available. The implant-based reconstruction uses a silicone implant while autologous reconstruction uses the patient’s own tissue.

Colorectal surgery

Deals primarily with the colon, rectum and anus.

A wide range of ailments, from mild and inconvenient to life threatening, can affect the functions of these organs.

To treat you, our doctors have a choice of techniques to choose from, including minimally invasive or laparoscopic procedures.

Upper GI surgery

The gastrointestinal tract includes the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon or large intestine/bowel.

The tract is typically divided into upper and lower segments.

Upper GI surgery treats ailments concerning the upper gastrointestinal tract, gall bladder, liver, pancreas or oesophagus.

Gastroenterology and hepatology

Our gastroenterologists are trained in carrying out procedures such as colonoscopy, FibroScan, gastroscope, ERCP and video endoscopy to ensure the good health and function of your complete digestive system.

Hepatologists in our unit are well-versed on issues affecting the functions of the liver, biliary tree and pancreas.

Anorectal manometry

This is a short and simple non-invasive procedure to evaluate the function of the anal sphincter muscle.

By testing the pressure of the muscle in the rectal area, our doctors will be able to identify the cause of faecal incontinence or constipation.
