Surgeon accredited to use laser for haemorrhoids
A private hospital in Woy Woy has welcomed a surgeon accredited to use a carbon dioxide laser to treat haemorrhoids.
Dr Adrian Burke claims to be the only surgeon in the country able to use the medical device specifically for haemorrhoidectomy.
He officially commenced operating duties at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital earlier this month.
The hospital has acquired a new carbon dioxide laser to its surgical repertoire.
"Laser haemorrhoidectomy is a highly-effective, virtually pain-free procedure and allows same day discharge even for the most severely affected haemorrhoid patients," said hospital chief executive Ms Kathy Beverly.
Dr Burke will also perform colonoscopy as well as a range of general surgical procedures, including hernia repair, and the treatment of complex skin cancers, including those requiring reconstruction with flap repair and skin grafting as part of his hospital duties.
