Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine surgery is a specialized surgical field where procedures are performed on endocrine glands to achieve a hormonal or anti-hormonal effect in the body. The field of endocrine surgery typically comprises surgery for the thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, and adrenal glands.  The most common endocrine surgery operation is removal of the thyroid (thyroidectomy), followed by parathyroid surgery (parathyroidectomy), followed by the rare operation on the adrenal gland (adrenalectomy).

Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery is a surgical sub-specialty that encapsulates a comprehensive and diverse set of surgical disciplines. The word ‘plastic’ in Plastic Surgery is derived from the Greek word ‘plastikos’ which means to mould or give form. It refers to the way in which one can reshape the tissues of the body to restore form and function.

 

Plastic Surgery encompasses both cosmetic (aesthetic) and reconstructive surgery. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon has undertaken years of training in all aspects of plastic  surgery and is able to offer the full complement of aesthetic & reconstructive plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery and hand surgery.
