The Redmond Clinic

General Surgery

Professor Redmond offers a general surgery service including hernias, gallstones, benign and malignant soft tissue tumours and skin lesions.

Hernias

A hernia is an abnormal protrusion of an organ, usually bowel through a weakness in the abdominal wall or surrounding tissues. Examples include inguinal, femoral and incisional hernias.

Treatment is usually surgical and this can be performed by open or key hold (laparoscopic) techniques.

Gallstones

Gallstones are small stones that form in the gallbladder, where bile is stored. In many cases gallstones don’t cause symptoms and don’t need treatment.

If they become symptomatic they can cause pain and once diagnosed will usually require treatment. The best treatment is laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This means removing the gall bladder using keyhole techniques. 

Soft Tissue Tumours

Among the most common tumors which can be classified as benign soft tissue tumors are lipoma, angiolipoma, fibroma, benign fibrous histiocytoma, neurofibroma, schwannoma, neurilemmona, hemangioma, giant cell tumor of tendon sheath, and myxoma.

Skin Lesions

Skin lesion are very common and most are benign. We offer evaluation of skin lesions including dermoscopy and mole mapping. We also offer all the modern treatments including ablation, biopsy and removal.
