Welcome to Manchester General Surgery

General surgery covers a wide aspect of surgical procedures from minor surgery to remove moles and other skin lesions, hernia surgery, abdominal wall reconstruction, cancer surgery and advanced keyhole 'laparoscopic' & ‘Robotic’ surgery.

Minimal access ' keyhole' surgery is available for most conditions related to abdominal organs including the small intestines, for gallstones, complex diseases of the liver and pancreas as well hernias.

Manchester General Surgery realises fully that surgery is an advancing field and endeavours to provide its patients with the latest techniques in diagnosis and surgery where possible. Undergoing a surgical procedure can be stressful, therefore patients are carefully informed of their diagnosis so that
they should feel more relaxed and confident about undergoing any intended treatment.

This website is designed to provide helpful information on common
general surgical conditions as well as a useful teaching tool. The web pages also contain information, using lay terms, on how a patient may benefit as well as the risks from undergoing surgery for certain conditions.
