The Department of Surgery provides surgical services to the entire population of Barbados for secondary and tertiary care in elective and emergency cases. It also provides services for patients referred from other Caribbean Islands for elective and emergency surgery. The department is also called upon to provide surgical services, particularly in emergency situations involving visitors to Barbados and persons who have become ill or sustained injury on ships in the waters off Barbados.
Services offered by the Department of Surgery include:
- General Surgery
- Hepato-biliary Surgery
- Vascular Surgery
- Transplant Surgery (kidney)
- Plastic Surgery
Our mission has been to provide good, safe surgical care to our patients on a cost-effective basis, and to improve the quality of care we provide.
Commonwealth Tribute to Life Project
Barbados has joined other nations of the Commonwealth in working together to increase ethical organ and tissue donation and transplantation, regardless of transplant infrastructure, for the benefit of all Commonwealth citizens. The project aims address the challenges to increase rates of donation across all social groups, ethnicities and religions, and believes more can be done to share knowledge and expertise using the historical ties and established relationships of citizens and governments of the Commonwealth.
