Department of Surgery

Department of Surgery

The Department of Surgery is a Unit within the Barwon Health Surgical Services Division. We have a strong research focus and a productive publication output, and constantly strives to improve patient outcomes. The unit comprises academic surgeons, postdoctoral research fellow and clinical audit coordinators.

Participation in our clinical trials and cohort studies is always completely voluntary, and never interferes with the normal standards for patient care. Our clinical trials and cohort studies enable us to assess outcomes of modern technologies and treatments to improve patient surgical outcomes. Patients participate in our clinical trials only after they receive a complete explanation of their options from their surgeon and surgical team.
