General Surgery at West Midlands Hospital
General Surgery is the surgical treatment of common health conditions that often focus on acute abdominal problems.
At West Midlands Hospital we offer the best care from your first appointment through to post-surgery aftercare for a range of surgical treatments for soft tissue abdominal disorders including the stomach, small bowel, liver, colon, gall bladder and bile ducts.
We offer convenient outpatient clinics with our consultant general surgeons and have x-ray, MRI, CT scanning and endoscopy facilities on site to investigate any abdominal problems.
Our skilled general surgeons regularly perform operations for many common abdominal complaints including: hernias, gallstones, appendicitis, anorectal problems (haemorrhoids, cancer, perianal disease, anal fissures and fistula), pilonidal sinus, lumps and bumps including lipomas, and intestinal disorders (inflammatory bowel disease, polyps, bowel and colorectal cancer).
Most often minimal invasive surgery, also known as keyhole surgery, is performed and open surgery is offered where appropriate. We offer advanced laparoscopic surgery including single-port laparoscopic surgery.
You may be referred for surgery and treatment through the NHS but if you would like to pay privately for treatment, please call us on 01384 880174 to book an appointment.
