Elective Splenectomy

Elective Splenectomy at Fitzwilliam Hospital

Elective splenectomy is a surgical procedure to remove part or all of your spleen. It is usually recommended if you have blood disorders, an enlarged spleen, or lymphoma or leukaemia cancers in your spleen. Splenectomy can be performed by keyhole or open surgery.

Our team of general surgeons are experts in the surgical removal of the spleen. They have vast knowledge and experience in performing this surgery and will answer any questions you have.

Ramsay hospitals offer convenient and timely appointments for a fast and reliable diagnosis and prompt treatment.

When surgically appropriate, laparoscopic surgery is performed using the latest equipment often in our purpose-built and JAG-accredited endoscopy units. If necessary, they can skilfully perform open splenectomy.

All Ramsay hospitals adhere to strict infection control and prevention protocols to minimise the risk of any infection, including COVID-19.
