Mr Graja is Consultant Breast and General Surgeon with over 10 years experience at Consultant level. He performs most standard general surgery and is actively involved in the General Surgery on-call rota at Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester.
He has a particular interest in hernia surgery, for which he uses a whole range of open and laparoscopic techniques. In line with the new developments in hernia repair, he currently prefers the modern open approach rather than laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. He offers surgery under either local or general anaesthetic, with most of his patients returning home on the same day.
Some of the more common operations offered are:
- Inguinal hernia repair
- Femoral hernia repair
- Umbilical hernia repair
- Incisional hernia repair (a hernia which has developed at the site of previous surgery)
- Spigelian hernia repair
- “Lumps and bumps” surgery
- Excision of lipoma and sebaceous cysts
- Scar correction
