The Hughes Medical Centre operates a sophisticated Surgery Department. The two operating theatres are equipped with the most up to date technology and monitoring devices for general surgery, gynecological, urology, laparoscopic and plastic and reconstructive surgery. Although surgical procedures are primarily ambulatory (day surgery), there are facilities for short stay overnight cases. Common procedures include: breast and skin biopsies, laparoscopic cholecystectomies, appendectomies, anal procedures, colorectal surgery, circumcisions, hernia repairs, mastectomies, lumpectomies and varicose vein surgeries.
The spacious operating suites and recovery area – with four immaculate and inviting overnight rooms for post-op recovery are ideal for unparalleled privacy.
Laser Vein Ablation Therapy
Dr. Jeffrey Alpern, cardiovascular surgeon, offers Endovenous Laser Ablation of varicose veins. This is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of varicose veins. A laser fiber is inserted through the skin and directly into the vein that is causing the bulgy, unattractive, and often painful varicose veins. The laser heats the lining within the vein, damaging it and causing it to collapse, shrink, and eventually disappear. This technique typically is used to treat the large varicose veins in the legs and takes less than 30 minutes to perform.
We are located in Lower South Hill area, immediately before the Cuisinart Hotel.
