Surgical Services

South Gippsland Hospital has a fully equipped operating room, post-anaesthetic care and a central sterilising supply department (CSSD).  The theatre suite carries out approximately 600 procedures per year.

Visiting and local surgeons and anaesthetists provide services on a regular basis.  Service provision includes:

  • General Surgery
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • Urology and Gastroenterology (Endoscopy)

Operating sessions are scheduled five times per fortnight with on-call staff available for after-hours emergency caesarean section procedures.  A surgical pre-admission clinic is provided once a week.

The CSSD processes reusable sterile stock for departments throughout the hospital and community health.
