Surgical Services

Parkwynd Private Hospital offers many surgical options for patients across a range of specialty areas.

Parkwynd has three operating theatres which are fully equipped with up to date technology to assist our Surgeons and staff to provide the best care possible to our patients.

Our Day Surgery Unit contributes to the provision of expert care to patients who are undergoing a wide variety of minor surgical procedures or diagnostic tests. The unit is specifically for patients who do not require an extended stay in hospital, usually enabling them to return home shortly after their procedure.
