General Surgery

Fast assessment and treatment for abdominal concerns

At BMI Woodlands Hospital, we offer private General Surgery to patients based in Darlington, Richmond and Barnard Castle.

General surgery is a wide-ranging area of medicine that focuses especially on the abdominal area.

General surgeons have an extensive set of skills and knowledge because they have to carry out a large number of elective surgeries.
