Our specialists carry out planned and emergency surgery for thousands of patients every year in our operating theatre suites at the University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool.

We carry out many surgical procedures for patients in the area we serve and from further afield including:

  • general surgery
  • breast surgery
  • orthopaedics (broken bones)
  • obstetrics and gynaecology
  • urology
  • colorectal
  • community dental
  • maxillo (facial) surgery
  • bariatric (weightloss) surgery

The staff were very efficient and friendly and made me feel relaxed. I also felt they had plenty of time to answer my queries and weren’t in any hurry to rush me through the procedure.

Most patients will go to the access lounge on admission where you will be prepared for your operation. You may be discharged from that unit if are going home on the same day as your operation.


Planned surgery is carried out from Monday to Friday between 8am and 6.30pm

Emergency surgery and obstetric surgery is performed in dedicated emergency theatres 24 hours a day, seven days a week
