The Surgical Practice was established in 2015 with the goal to provide effective, safe, and advanced surgical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for patients with various medical conditions. Its doctors are deeply committed to patients' overall health and well-being and are driven to provide the highest quality standards of care and personalised attention. Its services include surgical treatment for cancer and staging as well as gastrointestinal and bariatric surgery.
The clinic, which caters to both local and international patients, believes that the needs of the patients should always come first. It is this underlying philosophy that guides its surgeons when determining the best available care options for patients. If needed, they also make referrals to other specialists at Farrer Park Hospital to serve the patients’ best interest.
