Here at New Victoria Hospital our dedicated and multidisciplinary team of surgeons and healthcare professionals are committed to delivering exceptional care for patients requiring surgery for their stomach and upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. With a focus on diagnosing, treating, and managing conditions such as gallstones, hernias, acid reflux, and more, we offer a comprehensive range of private Stomach and Upper Intestine Surgery options to address various upper GI disorders.  


Surgery for Stomach Conditions

There are several diseases and conditions of the stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract that may require surgical intervention, this includes:

  • Gallstones: Surgical removal of the gallbladder is often necessary to treat gallstones that cause symptoms such as pain, inflammation, or complications.
  • Hernias: Abdominal hernias, including inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias, and incisional hernias, may require surgical repair to alleviate discomfort and prevent complications.
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD): In severe cases of chronic acid reflux that do not respond to medication and lifestyle modifications, surgical procedures can be performed to improve symptoms and prevent further damage to the oesophagus.
  • Peptic Ulcers: In some cases, stomach or upper intestine surgery may be required to treat peptic ulcers that do not heal with medications or less invasive treatments.
  • Gastrointestinal Tumours: Surgical interventions are often necessary to remove tumours in the stomach, oesophagus, or upper small intestine.
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding: If non-surgical methods fail to control or treat gastrointestinal bleeding, surgical procedures may be required to identify and repair the source of bleeding.
  • Strictures or Narrowing: Surgical interventions can help alleviate complications associated with strictures or narrowing of the oesophagus, stomach, or upper small intestine, ensuring proper food passage and reducing symptoms.
  • Gastroparesis: In severe cases of gastroparesis, where the stomach muscles do not function properly, surgical procedures may be considered to improve gastric motility.
surgery for stomach conditions

The need for private Stomach Surgery varies depending on the individual's condition and response to other treatment options. Firstly, a patient will be scheduled for a consultation with one of our expert General Surgeons. During this consultation, our doctors will attentively listen to a patient’s concerns and symptoms to thoroughly assess their condition.

We will then conduct the necessary tests and diagnostic procedures to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

As part of our comprehensive approach to upper GI disorders and private Stomach Surgery, we offer leading endoscopy and gastroscopy services. Gastroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows our specialists to examine the inside of the oesophagus, stomach, and upper small intestine and diagnose any related conditions.

Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals works closely with patients to ensure that the treatment plan is tailored to their specific needs. We make sure that patients are always well informed of what lies ahead in their surgical treatment plans, including the risks and aftercare.
