General surgery

General surgery focuses on abdominal contents including the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland.

Our experienced consultant-led general surgery team offers a full range of assessments, treatment and follow-up for a wide range of surgical procedures at both Epsom and St Helier hospitals, including:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Upper GI and endoscopy
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
  • Laparoscopic hernia
  • Thyroidectomy parathyroid
  • Vascular/arterial/varicose veins.

As a patient on the Northey Suite, you will recover from your surgery in the comfort, cleanliness and privacy of your own room, with our dedicated nursing team.
