Treatment Procedures

The Manchester General Surgeon offers a wide range of surgical interventions and procedures that can be used to treat various conditions. We use the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques to treat your condition. Because of the increasingly specialist nature of all surgery, we tend to divide general surgery into a number of sub-specialties. The below provides and overview of the main procedure types with a link to further information for each.

General Surgery

General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on alimentary canal and abdominal contents including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. Wikipedia

Bowel Cancer Surgery

The aim of surgery is to remove the bowel cancer along with normal tissue around it (called a margin), making sure that the remaining bowel still has a good blood supply. Sometimes, quite a large section of bowel needs to be removed in order to achieve this.

Endoscopy Surgery

An endoscopy is a procedure where the inside of your body is examined using an instrument called an endoscope. An endoscopy can be used to investigate unusual symptoms and help to perform certain types of surgery. 

Gallbladder Surgery

Gallbladder removal surgery, also known as a cholecystectomy, is a very common procedure. You don’t need a gallbladder, so surgery to take it out is often recommended if you develop any problems with it

Hernia Surgery

Hernia surgery refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia - a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy; or hernioplasty.

Haemorrhoid Procedures

Find out more about the range of traditional and more pioneering operations to treat haemorrhoids. A conventional haemorrhoidectomy involves gently opening the anus so the haemorrhoids can be cut out wheres more innovative treatment options are performed under day case (walk-in/walk-out) light sedation and include the Rafaelo and HALO proecedure treatments.

Rafaelo® Procedure

The Rafaelo® Procedure is an excellent alternative to surgery because it is minimally invasive, has low risk of pain and it allows patients to leave as soon as the procedure is finished.


HALO Procedure

The Haemorrhoidal Artery Ligation Operation (HALO) is a surgical operation designed to eradicate piles without the need for cutting. It is relatively pain free, and most patients are back to work after 24 - 48 hours.

Keyhole (Laparoscopic) Surgery

Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen (tummy) and pelvis without having to make large incisions in the skin. This procedure is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery.

What Our Patients Say

Patient SN

"After successfully undergoing the HALO procedure carried out by your good self I know I should make the time to explain how grateful I am to you for making such a significant difference to the quality of my life. Most pleasing has been how easily things have been corrected despite me having left it far too long before seeking your help."
