Kensington Hospital

Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

General & Laparoscopic Surgery

General Surgery encompasses a wide range of conditions within the abdomen, breast, neck, skin and, vascular (blood vessel) system.

Some procedures are performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) where a surgical telescope is inserted through a small incision 5-10mm long. Laparoscopic surgery is usually associated with less blood loss during surgery and less pain and scarring following surgery. In most cases, time spent in hospital is less and overall recovery time from the operation is less than with conventional open surgery. 

General Surgeons operating at Kensington Hospital are:

   - Dr Vanessa Blair

   - Mr John Lengyel

   - Mr Mark Sanders

   - Mr Rajesh Patel
