Appendicectomy

Appendicectomy at Fitzwilliam Hospital

Appendicectomy is an operation to remove a swollen and painful appendix, a condition called appendicitis.

At Ramsay Health Care UK, our skilled surgeons routinely perform appendicectomy surgery using both open and laparoscopic techniques.

Our experienced general surgeons will recommend the most appropriate type of appendicectomy for you based on your individual circumstances. Laparoscopic appendicectomies are performed using the latest equipment and often in our purpose-built and JAG-accredited endoscopy units. Open surgeries are performed promptly and competently. We aim to treat your appendicitis quickly so that you can get on with your daily life pain-free and without the worry of any complications arising.

As a Ramsay patient, your safety is our utmost concern. We follow strict infection control and prevention protocols to minimise the risk of any infection, including COVID-19.
