General Surgery

What we do  

Our ten consultant surgeons provide an emergency and elective service for all General Surgical conditions. They are supported by Middle Grades, Junior Doctors and two surgical care practitioners. The service is headed by Mr Steve Odogwu, Clinical Director for General Surgery and a consultant in colorectal surgery. Walsall Manor is one of the leading hospitals in the West Midlands for laparoscopic colorectal surgery and has been particularly successful in driving down the length of inpatient stays, thanks to a combination of the surgical techniques used and the hospital's successful post-operative Enhanced Recovery Programme.

We see patients with acute and chronic general surgical conditions.

Are Self-Referrals Accepted?

Direct access to this service is available via GP or Accident and Emergency.
