General Surgery

General Surgery

Our surgeons are a group of dedicated & experienced professionals, who specialise in Colorectal, Upper Gastrointestinal & Breast Surgery. They work closely to provide a range of general & specialised surgery. All our surgeons are full-time Consultants at the James Paget University Hospital, and teach at the Norwich Medical School. In addition they are all involved in clinical research & the training of junior doctors.

General surgical procedures that are commonly performed include hernia repair, laparoscopic cholecystectomy (removal of the gall bladder) and the treatment of haemorrhoids. Hernia repairs of all types can be done by the open approach or the laparoscopic (key-hole) approach. Specialist operations include laparoscopic or open bowel resections (colorectal), laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery (upper gastrointestinal) and breast reconstruction/breast cancer surgery (breast)

At the EPCR we also have a specialist surgeon who specialises in surgery procedures on the head, neck and thyroid.
