Southern Cross Wellington Hospital - Paediatric Surgery

Private Surgical Service, Paediatrics

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.

Appendectomy

Laparoscopic: several small incisions (cuts) are made in the lower right abdomen and a narrow tube with a tiny camera attached (laparoscope) in inserted. This allows the surgeon a view of the appendix and, by inserting small surgical instruments through the other cuts, the appendix can be removed.
