soft tissue surgery


Soft tissue surgery includes a wide range of surgical procedures such as ear-nose-and-throat, cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, and oncological and reconstructive surgery.

The vast majority of soft tissue procedures are able to be undertaken here at Island Referrals. Ian Nicholson works in tandem with Kit Sturgess, an RCVS-recognised Specialist in Internal Medicine who visits Island Referrals regularly to help with cases with complex medical and surgical needs. We also have access to full Diagnostic Imaging support from external specialist imagers, using our onsite CT scanner and visiting MRI service.
