Our practice

Eastren Suburbs Surgical Specialists

Eastern Suburbs Surgical Specialists offers private and public patients a comprehensive range of services from the one conveniently located Randwick practice.

Our surgeons specialise in head and neck, skin cancer, general, upper GI, weight-loss and urology procedures.

Because complex patients require extra support, we also have a perioperative physician available to assess and manage patients’ medical issues before, during and after their surgery. This additional care helps them transition through the hospital experience as smoothly as possible.

We strive to see new patients within one week of enquiry, and will attend immediately to urgent cases. Our specialists understand the importance of clinical care providers working together for the best patient outcomes. Therefore, they strive to be as accessible as possible to a patient’s entire healthcare team and welcome direct contact from GPs, even after hours.

"By spending more time with patients in consultations, we can best prepare them for surgery and an early return to function. We tailor procedures and treatments to patients, avoiding a 'one-size fits all' approach."
