We are The Surgeons Collective in Perth
Established in 2013 as “The Liver Centre” and “The Hernia Gallbladder Centre”, our team has since expanded and we now offer highly specialised surgery for all upper abdominal organs. The types of surgery we provide are known as hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery and upper GI surgery.
The founder of The Surgeons Collective, Professor Luc Delrivière, has been involved in over 1,000 liver transplants throughout his career in renown institutions such as King’s College Hospital, London and Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. He is the senior liver transplant surgeon of the WA Liver Transplant Service.
Professor Delrivière has assembled a team known as “The Surgeons Collective” which offers patients the benefit of a unique and centralised group including leading surgeons, specialist hepatologists (liver physicians), gastro-enterologists and dietitians.
All of our team share common values of integrity, team spirit, commitment, empathy and hard work.
We are here to offer you support and management with any disease of the oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and spleen. We also offer general surgical procedures such as hernia repair surgery.
Bariatric procedures (obesity surgery) are an important component of our surgical services also.
We have a unique commitment to ensure that two specialist surgeons are present, working together, during your surgery. As part of our personalised post-operative after-care, we visit our patients every day during their hospitalisation, including Saturdays and Sundays, to assure that care is always optimal.
We provide surgery for benign and malignant lesions of the liver such as liver metastases, hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma. We perform all standard surgeries to the most advanced liver surgery thanks to our unique experience in liver transplantation. No other surgeon in Perth has this experience to place at the service of your health.
Gallbladder & Bile Duct Surgery
We build on many years of University Hospital experience such as King’s College Hospital, London and Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge to offer the safest and most cutting edge surgery of the gallbladder and bile duct anatomy, available in Western Australia. We deliver excellent surgical outcomes as well as the most attentive patient care and support.
This type of surgery is used to help patients with chronic obesity and consists of reducing the size of the stomach. A gastric sleeve procedure is a common type of weight loss surgery, performed by our bariatric surgeons. Gastric bypass is another option. To help you achieve the best outcome, our surgeons and dietitians work closely together to support you on your weight loss journey.
Hernia repair is needed when intestine or fatty tissue pushes through a weak spot in the muscular structure of your abdomen to create a bulge. Hernia repairs can be an open or a laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery). When you consider the options for your hernia repair, it’s essential to see a specialist surgeon to get expert surgery and patient care both before, during and after your surgery.

When you need surgery, you want to know that your health is in the hands of an expert team that works together to help you.

Our Surgeons, Physicians and Dietitians
Transplant & liver surgeons, Upper GI surgeons and bariatric surgeons all specialise in their specific treatments and surgeries. Yet, because they all work in the upper abdominal area of the human body, their shared and combined expertise is extremely valuable. This is why we decided to create a unique collaborative approach to surgery and The Surgeons Collective was born. Surgeons, hepatologists, gastroenterologists and dietitians now work together in a collective effort to never give up on your health.
