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. 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 family medicine services for people of all ages. The 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.
