General surgery (children)

What we do

The children’s surgery service is nationally and internationally renowned for minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic surgery, which it helped pioneer. Minimally invasive surgery allows operations to be performed through tiny cuts with more precision, allowing children to recover sooner and with less pain. The surgical team includes expertise in neonatal (premature and newborn babies), lung, intestinal, urinary tract and genital surgery.

What we offer

  • Designated centre for specialist paediatric and neonatal surgery in North West London
  • Modern ward facilities, state-of-the-art children's operating theatres and day case wards, a children's high dependency unit, and a spacious and welcoming children's outpatient department
  • The option of private care, with on-site private clinic and inpatient beds
  • 24/7 paediatric surgery cover for emergency care
  • Our surgeons provide surgical clinics and day case operating lists at West Middlesex University Hospital as well as a number of partner hospitals including Hammersmith Hospital, St Mary’s Paddington, Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital, the North West London Hospitals, Watford General, Hillingdon Hospital and The Royal Brompton
  • A wide range of support for parents and families before and after surgery

We deal with all areas of children’s surgery, including conditions diagnosed in pregnancy or that babies are born with—such as oesophageal atresia, gastroschisis, diaphragmatic hernia, malrotation and Hirschsprung’s disease—and acquired/emergency conditions such as intussusception, hernias, appendicitis or inflammatory bowel disease.
