Laparoscopic Services

The following is a list of operations performed by Dr France. It is not exhaustive but does give an indication of those areas where Dr France has specialist training and wishes to concentrate his expertise.

Whilst Dr France does perform the majority of operations by a laparoscopic approach, not all patients and situations will be suitable for laparoscopic surgery in such cases traditional open surgery will be performed. It is not always possible to determine if a laparoscopic approach will be possible prior to surgery, if an operation is converted to an open approach this is done in the patients best interest.
