General Surgery - Children and Young People

General Surgery is often required for Children and Young People.

Our specialist General Surgeons see young patients in relation to:

  • Medically necessary circumcision 
  • Hernias
  • Foreskin medical issues
  • Undescended testicles
  • Excision of lumps and bumps

At One Ashford Hospital we have specialist General Surgery Consultant Surgeons who see patients under the age of 18 for outpatient appointments, diagnosis and outpatient or daycase treatment. 

Our imaging suite with MRI, X-Ray and Ultrasound is available for our surgeons to refer young patients to and is fully equipped and experienced in dealing with our younger patients.
