Karen Surgery: Healthcare, the way it should be

Karen Surgery started in 1991 as a small traditional general practice to provide medical services to the Karen / Langata community. The provision of traditional family medicine was new to Kenya, and soon patients were coming from all over Nairobi, upcountry Kenya, and even East Africa. Karen Surgery has moved a few times, and expanded, but its core values have not changed, and the doctors and psychologist who own and run it have a long-term commitment to the practice and the community.

Karen Surgery provides primary care services for people of all ages. The General Practitioners (GPs) or Family Physicians establish a personal relationship with each individual, one on one, that may last for decades; and may also care for several generations within the same family. Family medicine aims to keep you in good physical and mental health, resolve your medical issues quickly, and keep you out of the emergency room.
