Our Team has Surgeons with training and experience in the fields of General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Transplant Surgery, Urological Surgery, Hepatobiliary Surgery and Colorectal Surgery.
Our unit is housed in wards 1 & 2. We have 3 dedicated operating theatres and an Endoscopic Unit.
The Surgical Unit trains the undergraduates at different stages of their Medical career. We also involved in training Post Graduate Trainees of the Post Graduate Institute of Medicine Sri Lanka in General Surgical fields and other Surgical specialties such as Vascular Surgery.
