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.

Bariatric Surgery

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 Surgery

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.

Stomach Cancer Surgery

Stomach cancer and ulcer surgery is one of our specialties. We can help with endoscopies and assessment of these conditions as well as nutritional support. These types of surgeries are now rarer as risk factors such as smoking and alcohol, as well as excessive consumption of preserved foods, are more controlled. Only experienced surgeons should perform this type of surgery. Our surgical training is extensive and has been carried out in some of the best worldwide institutions.

Spleen Surgery

A number of conditions can affect the spleen and treatment may involve a splenectomy (surgical removal of the spleen). If a splenectomy is performed, a number of vaccinations are necessary. Our multi-disciplinary team will be there for you to prepare your surgery and provide support and aftercare.

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.
