General Surgery Clinic
About the Clinic
The General Surgery Clinic is a specialized service for the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with a wide range of congenital anomalies and acquired diseases of the abdomen, chest, head and neck, and endocrine organs. We also care for children with multiple injuries and those requiring liver and small bowel transplants.
What to bring:
- Copies of reports or imaging (CDs) pertinent to your appointment
Important pre-appointment instructions:
Your child may be requested to go for testing prior to the consultation, such as an ultrasound or GI study. If so, the Clinic Information Clerk will provide you with details on fasting instructions and where to go for registration.
The clinic is located on Unit 6C. Take the Atrium elevators to the 6th floor and walk to 6C.
What to Expect During Your Visit
Your appointment is for a consultation with a general surgeon. You will be assessed first by the clinic nurse, and then members of the General Surgery team, which may include residents, medical students, fellows and a nurse practitioner, working in collaboration with the staff surgeon.
If this is a new consultation, you may be booked for surgery on a future date or you may be requested to return for follow-up testing or monitoring.
If you are booked for surgery, the procedure will be reviewed in detail and a pre-operative package will be developed. If your child does require a follow- up appointment, you will be instructed to see the information clerk prior to leaving the clinic.
