Super Saturday surgery day reduces waiting lists

14 February 2023

On Saturday 4 February, Mr Ioannis Gerogiannis (Consultant General and UGI Surgeon and Clinical Lead for Surgery) along with Kingston Hospital’s surgical teams, ran another successful ‘Super Saturday’ surgery catch up day.

Colleagues performed 14 hernia operations under general anaesthetic and 12 excisions under local anaesthetic.

Extra surgery days dedicated to the same types of surgery allow the team to see more patients. As well as reducing surgery waiting lists, this provides a great opportunity for learning for our trainees at the hospital.
