About Upper GI Surgery
About our practice
The Upper GI Surgery specialist practice has been established over 14 years in Sydney with our main practice at St George Private Hospital (Kogarah, Sydney) as well as other clinics in Wollongong and Orange. We have recently expanded our practice to St Vincents Clinic and Private Hospital, in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
