The seven divisions of the Department of Surgery provide a wide range of surgical services. These specialist areas all offer outstanding medical services: treatmments, which, because of their complexity, interdisciplinary approach and innovative nature, would be difficult to provide elsewhere. 

The Department of Surgery is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing its excellent scientific reputation. At the same time, the staff feel that they have a duty to teach, in order to pass this excellent surgical tradition on to the next generation.
