Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals offers a range of surgical procedures.

The general surgery department offers the following:

  • General surgery
  • Day surgery units – at Basildon and Orsett hospitals
  • Paediatric surgery
  • Breast surgery
  • Laproscopic procedures including treatment for colorectal conditions, hernias and cholecystectomy

Basildon University Hospital has seven operating theatres in its main theatre suite. The Critical Care Unit is located close-by for patients who need extra monitoring and support following their surgery.

Day Surgery

Both Basildon and Orsett Hospitals have dedicated day surgery units, with their own operating theatres, where most non-emergency surgery takes place. Many routine operations can be carried out without an overnight stay, thanks to advances in medical techniques and anaesthetics.
