Cancer surgery and procedures
Some types of cancer can be treated with surgery. If surgery forms part of your treatment you will be admitted to The Holly Private Hospital either as a day patient or a longer inpatient. Before surgery you’ll be assessed for your suitability for anaesthetic and surgery.
Our expert consultants provide effective surgery for patients diagnosed with a range of cancers including:
- bowel cancer
- breast cancer (including lumpectomy, mastectomy, sentinel lymph node biopsy, axillary clearance and reconstructive surgery)
- gynaecological cancers including ovarian, cervical, and endometrium
- lung cancer
- cancers of the oesophagus, stomach and pancreas (upper gastrointestinal)
- skin cancer
- urological cancers such as cancer of the prostate, bladder, kidney and testicular cancer.
All our consultant doctors at The Holly Private Hospital are highly experienced and have many years expertise in performing surgery to treat cancer.
They will talk to you and explain what happens during your surgery, and what to expect
