General Surgery

General Surgery is the broadest of the surgical specialties. It focuses on the treatment and care of patients who require a surgical procedure as part of treatment for a range of conditions. Many of our surgeons have undertaken further training to specialise in particular areas within general surgery. Depending on the type of procedure, these may be performed as open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, or as robotic surgery.

Robotic Inguinal Hernia Surgery Program

Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed general surgical procedures, with simple procedures often performed as day cases. The gold standard is laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery. The procedure can also be done robotically with equally good results; however, a perception persists that this is a more expensive, less efficient method. Sydney Adventist Hospital has several of Sydney’s leading robotic general surgeons who perform inguinal hernia surgery both robotically and laparoscopically, and has recently launched a Quality Improvement Project aimed at testing this perception.
