General surgery

General surgery is a specialty that focuses on abdomen, including oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, pancreas, gallbladder, liver and bile ducts. General surgeons often perform procedures on hernias and skin lesions.

At Harrogate Harlow Private Healthcare Service, we provide a full range of elective and emergency general surgery services. Surgery for common surgical conditions such as skin lesions and hernias can be treated by laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.

You can be assured in the knowledge that our Consultant-led MDT team of specialists looking after you ensure swift access to the latest medical technology available at Harrogate District Hospital is granted where required.

  • Consultants in other specialities work in close liaison with the surgery team in a 24/7 consultant-led service.
  • The team is backed-up by the availability of other on-site hospital services and amenities, including a Intensive Therapy Unit/High Dependency Unit (ITU/HDU). This is a combined high dependency and intensive care unit, providing 24 hour care to patients who require specialist or advanced medical intervention or monitoring.

We also work closely with colleagues at Leeds Teaching Hospitals where required to ensure best possible care for you.
