General Surgeon Ballina

How can Dr Isaacs help?

Dr Isaacs at Core Specialist Group goes beyond weight and obesity surgery. As a general surgeon, she offers a range of surgeries including hernia repair, acid reflux treatment, gallbladder removal, and surgeries for certain cancers. For those in or near Ballina, Dr Isaacs offers consultations to explore these surgical treatments. Here is an overview:

  • Gastric sleeve surgery: Bariatric surgery or metabolic surgery lends to significant and durable weight loss by changing the body’s hormones to aid metabolism.
  • Gastric bypass surgery: This procedure reroutes the digestive system, leading to substantial weight loss and health gains.
  • Hiatal hernia repair: Hiatal hernias slide the stomach into the chest. Surgery can ease reflux and pain.
  • Inguinal hernia repair: Inguinal hernias form in the groin. Surgery can stop them from getting worse or recurring.
  • Femoral hernia repair: Femoral hernias appear near the thigh. Surgery can fix them and prevent further complications.
  • Ventral hernia repair: Ventral hernias bulge through an abdominal opening. Repair can strengthen the area.
  • Umbilical hernia repair: An umbilical hernia occurs when fatty tissue or a part of the intestines pokes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall near your belly button.
  • Acid reflux surgery: GORD is usually managed with diet and medication to lessen stomach acid, with surgery as an option if these don’t work or if you’d rather fix the problem permanently instead of taking long-term medication.
  • Gallbladder surgery: Gallstones can cause pain and various complications such as pancreatitis therefore surgery is recommended if pain persists.
  • Oesophageal cancer surgery: This procedure involves removing the affected portion of the oesophagus and reconstructing the digestive tract.
