At Blackrock Health, our hospitals in Dublin and Galway have a long-standing history of excellence in the field of general surgery. Across all three hospitals, we have a shared history of many decades in providing expert surgical care. Our experienced and highly qualified surgeons are extremely skilled in performing a wide range of general surgical procedures. These range from routine surgeries to more complex and specialised operations. We have a reputation for using the latest surgical techniques and technologies. This includes minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery when advisable and where possible. We are committed to providing personalised care that is tailored to your individual needs. Our team works closely with other specialists to ensure that you receive the best possible care before, during and after your surgery. Whether you require surgery for a minor issue or a more complex condition, we can help you on your journey towards the best possible outcome. 

Across our three hospitals, we offer a wide range of procedures including breast, colorectal, hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal surgery. We also offer a range of laparoscopic, minimally invasive and radical procedures. 

Individual services vary between our locations, so please check with your preferred hospital to confirm they provide the surgery you need.

Each of our surgeons has an area of specialisation. Our surgeons provide a wide variety of procedures to both diagnose and surgically treat multiple conditions.
