Centre for General Surgery
Centre for General Surgery focuses on applying the latest operative procedures with non- invasive or minimally invasive techniques that reduce scarring, pain and post- operative recovery time in every specialty. Minimally Invasive Procedures have proven equal success rates, with faster recovery times, lesser pain and reduced blood loss.
Our Neurosurgeons, Renal Transplant, Laparoscopic and Bariatric, and Cardiothoracic Surgeons have pioneered a number of minimally invasive surgeries through the application of robotics and modern day technology.The panels of surgeons have gained international expertise in minimally invasive techniques across all surgical disciplines. Procedures that required extensive hospital stays and long periods of recovery and recuperation are now routinely done with minimally invasive approaches, often on an outpatient basis.
