General Surgery at Cleveland Clinic London

Common conditions we treat include:

  • Abscess, a collection of pus causing a painful lump that often needs a procedure to drain it.
  • Appendicitis, painful swelling of the appendix which often requires surgery to remove the appendix.
  • Gallstones, stone-like objects that develop in the gallbladder or bile ducts and often need removing through a surgical procedure.
  • Hernia, when an internal organ or other body part protrudes through the wall of muscle or tissue that normally contains it. Hernias usually do not get better on their own, and surgery may be needed to repair them.

Treatments and surgeries:

We offer the most advanced general surgical techniques, designed to get you back on your feet again quickly and safely.

  • Complex abdominal wall and abdominal hernia surgery to repair a large number of recurrent hernias or for complex, large hernias that have occurred through a previously incision (surgery).
  • Gallbladder removal (laparoscopic cholecystectomy): a surgical procedure where a laparoscope, a narrow tube with a camera, is inserted through a small incision and the gallbladder is then removed through another small incision.
  • Laparoscopic and open hernia surgery: hernia surgery can be open (where a cut is made into the body at the location of the hernia), laparoscopic (where tiny incisions are made to allow for the insertion of surgical tools) or robotic (where the surgeon operates the surgical tools from a console).
  • Removal of skin lesions such as skin tags, cysts or moles.
