Andrew Herd - North Shore Colorectal & General Surgeon & Endoscopist
Private Service, General Surgery
General surgery covers some disorders of the liver and biliary system. The most common of these is pain caused by gallstones. These are formed if the gallbladder is not working properly, and the standard treatment is to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). This procedure is usually performed using a laparoscopic (keyhole) approach.
