Dr Jon Morrow manages a number of general surgical conditions. Operations can be performed either by a minimally invasive approach (keyhole surgery) or as an open procedure. The best method will be tailored to you.

Successful weight loss requires a combination of both lifestyle changes (including diet and exercise) and surgery. A range of different weight loss surgical procedures (band, sleeve, bypass) are available. Any and all options can be discussed.

Gallstones are very common and can cause a variety of conditions ranging from minor to severe. Surgical removal of the gallbladder via keyhole surgery is the recommended treatment.

Hernias come in all shapes and sizes and should, if possible, be fixed. They can be repaired via a traditional open approach or by using minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery.

DR JON MORROW manages a variety of surgical conditions including obesity, gallstone disease, and hernias. The choice of operation is tailored to your needs after a thorough discussion at the initial consultation.

OBESITY is a major worldwide problem and has a significant impact on the health and life expectancy of those affected. Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) , in conjunction with lifestyle changes (diet and exercise) can achieve excellent, sustained weight loss, improvement in co-morbidities (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnoea) and enhance quality of life. The 3 most common weight loss operations include gastric banding, gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass, all performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery).

GALLSTONES are very common and can cause significant problems including pain (biliary colic), jaundice (yellowness), inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), and inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). Once you have had problems related to gallstones, you are at an increased risk of having further attacks. The best way to prevent this is to remove the gallbladder, the organ which produces the gallstones, via keyhole surgery (laparoscopic cholecystectomy).

HERNIA'S can occur at any age. They may be asymptomatic and discovered incidentally, or they may cause discomfort, pain, or bowel obstruction. The common hernia’s include inguinal (groin), umbilical (belly button), incisional (related to previous surgery) and femoral (groin/upper thigh). These can be repaired either as an open or laparoscopic (keyhole) approach.

QUALITY of service is paramount to Dr Morrow. He will endeavor to meet your needs and expectations via thorough, comprehensive communication throughout the consultative process.
