The types of surgery that are performed in our unit include breast surgery, urology, colorectal (haemorrhoidectomy & laparoscopic cholecystectomy), vascular (varicose veins & hernias), gynaecology (hysteroscopy), Maxillo-facial (surgical removal of teeth) and Ears, Nose, Throat (ENT) (micro-laryngoscopy).
Our Day Surgery Centre is open 7:30am – 8.00pm, Monday – Friday.
