ACUTE SURGICAL PROBLEMS

As a general surgeon participating in the on call rota at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, I provide general acute surgical care for a wide range of conditions. Approximately 70% of emergency admissions relate to the abdomen, with the other admissions made up of a range of problems from other areas. Some of the commonest conditions I treat include appendicitis, skin abscesses and acute abdominal pain, the latter of which includes a large number of different pathologies. Please see the attached link for more information about these conditions.
