  • Cholecystitis

We provide a full range of elective and emergency general surgery services. Surgery for common surgical conditions such as skin lesions and hernias can be treated by laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.

You can be assured in the knowledge that our consultant-led multi-disciplinary team are a team of specialists who provide high quality care and ensure swift access where required to the latest medical technology available at Harrogate District Hospital.

  • Consultants in other specialities work in close liaison with the surgery team in a 24/7 consultant-led service.
  • The team is supported by the availability of other on-site hospital services and amenities, including an intensive therapy unit/high dependency unit. This is a combined high dependency and intensive care unit, providing 24 hour care to patients who require specialist or advanced medical intervention or monitoring.

We also work closely with colleagues at Leeds Teaching Hospitals where required to ensure the best possible care for you.

My rating for Mr Conroy is five stars throughout. The reply to my first email reflected attentiveness and much concern regarding Gaynor’s situation. We were at a dead end with nowhere to turn. Having researched online I came up with Mr Conroy’s profile and I knew that he was the one to sort things out. His expertise is second to none and we are both so grateful that he took us on. His post-op report to us was detailed and full of hope. We believe he did the best he could in the circumstances found. Recommendations goes without saying.
