General Surgery

Although it has an extremely wide scope, general surgery typically involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and injuries affecting the abdomen, breasts, skin, neck and vasculature.

Our team of Kelowna based general surgeons are highly trained to manage a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries in almost any area of the body and have a strong core knowledge of all surgical specialties, so you can trust them to make thoughtful and decisive decisions when it comes to every aspect of your health.

At Okanagan Health Centre, we are fueled by the constant drive to improve our practice and provide our patients with world-class health care. Our general surgery team uses the most advanced technology to help you reach all your health goals quickly, successfully and sustainably. Some of our services include:

Open Hernia Repair

A hernia is a medical condition in which a part of an organ is displaced and protrudes through its cavity wall due to muscle weakness or strain. While the condition is not immediately life-threatening, surgery is required to prevent any potential and dangerous complications later on. Our general surgery team provides open hernia repair surgeries in which the hernia is either pushed back into place or removed.

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

While not suitable for all types of hernias, laparoscopic hernia repair is much less invasive and damaging to the surrounding tissue than an open hernia repair. Through the use of a tiny camera and small surgical equipment, one of our surgeons will be able to repair the hernia using only a few small incisions.
