General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and the thyroid gland. General surgeons also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, soft tissue, and hernias.
We have a number of General Surgeons who hold clinics at Chase Lodge. They will advise on any troubling symptoms which may need investigation and possibly an operation. All your bloods and many other investigations can be dealt with here. The Consultant will discuss with you where an operation will be performed if that proves to be the best treatment option.
Nurse Nicky Dennis has a great deal of experience in helping with dressings and stitches after a procedure.
