Gallstone disease is very common and can cause significant ill health. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder with keyhole surgery) is the most effective and accepted management for symptomatic (e.g. pain, infection) gallstone disease.


Breast Oncoplastic Surgery

Oncoplastic breast surgery incorporates both oncologic surgery (cancer priorities) and plastic surgery (aesthetic priorities) principles to achieve optimum cancer outcomes with the best cosmetic outcome.
