Surgery

We care for patients who need planned and emergency surgery.

General surgery is a large department within the Trust and includes specialist surgery such as vascular surgery, breast surgery, colorectal surgery, laparoscopic or keyhole surgery and upper gastrointestinal surgery.

We do elective (planned) surgery at Wycombe Hospital and emergency surgery at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Together with our dedicated teams of nurses, junior doctors and support staff, we try to make sure your treatment is smooth, efficient and of the highest clinical standards.

Specialist surgery 

 

We can usually arrange surgery within 1 to 2 weeks of diagnosis and to fit around your personal arrangements. We do most breast operations, including cancer procedures, as day cases.

For the types of breast surgery we offer, visit our breast care page 

 

We offer parathyroid surgery, including minimally invasive parathyroid surgery, following advanced diagnostics from our specialist radiology team. We’re one of the few UK centres to offer minimal access parathyroid surgery which is a day case procedure.

We have a particular interest in performing laparoscopic colorectal surgery and, combined with an enhanced-recovery programme, patients experience less pain following surgery with a short hospital stay.

We offer the most up-to-date clinical care for patients with benign upper gastrointestinal tract disease. This includes the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and small bowel.

Nearly 90% of the surgery we offer is laparoscopic or ‘keyhole’ surgery which means a shorter stay in hospital and a quicker return to normal activities. This surgery includes the removal of gallbladders, surgery for hernias of the abdominal wall, and surgery for heartburn and hiatus hernias.
