Surgical Excellence

Surgical skillset + cutting edge technology

With a commitment as leaders in surgical excellence, we’ve welcomed so much skill to our rota. Our team includes leading surgeons in their field, some internationally renowned for their expertise and innovation in new medical developments and surgical techniques.

When we team such talent with the leading surgical technology that Waratah Private Hospital invests in – such as the NAVIO Surgical System – it’s a perfect match for optimal outcomes.

Minimally invasive or Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery is a key specialty available. It results in faster recovery and less complications post-surgery. We are delighted to offer our patients such a high calibre of skill in general surgery, particularly in advanced laparoscopic procedures.

Internationally renowned surgeons

Professor Chris Berney is a prime example of the talent within our surgical teams. Driven by his patients’ unique needs, recovery, and overall quality of life, Prof Berney has dedicated his career to the development and implementation of different laparoscopic procedures. For the last five years, he has successfully educated other surgeons from around the globe in such techniques with an annual surgical masterclass hosted here at Waratah Private.

The outcome of the clinical practices he adopts sees his patients able to return to normal activities within days of surgery and a significant improvement to their quality of life.

Prof. Berney plays a pivotal role in the development of life-saving and life-enhancing medical devices, working closely with this innovative industry. For more on Professor Berney, view his profile here.
