At Morning Star Hospitals, we perform a wide range of surgeries with many subspecialties. Our surgeons have the expertise, knowledge, and skills to deal with all kinds of surgical emergencies, with an emphasis on acute abdominal problems. We also carry out a large number of elective operations.
One distinguishing feature of general surgery is the range of sub-specialties that lie within it. These include:
- Breast – assessment of a large number of patient with breast symptoms, and surgery on breast cancers, often including reconstructive procedures that do not require plastic surgeons.
- Colorectal – surgery for diseases of the colon, rectum, and anal canal.
- Endocrine – surgery for disease of the thyroid and other endocrine glands.
- Upper Gastrointestinal – surgery for diseases affecting the liver, oesophagus, and stomach. This also covers obesity surgery. Major operations for cancer are usually done in regional specialist units.
