Welcome to the General Surgery Department! We understand that you may have questions about the treatments and services offered in our department. Here is some information to help you understand what is included in general surgery.
Surgical Consultations: Our department provides comprehensive surgical consultations to assess your condition and determine the appropriate course of treatment. During this consultation, the surgeon will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and may order additional tests or imaging studies if necessary.
Minimally Invasive Surgery: General surgery includes a wide range of procedures that can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. These procedures involve smaller incisions, reduced pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times. Some common minimally invasive procedures include laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, and endoscopic procedures.
Abdominal Surgeries: General surgery often involves surgeries related to the abdominal region. These may include appendectomy (removal of the appendix), cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder), hernia repair, colectomy (removal of a part of the colon), and gastric surgery for conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or obesity.
Breast Surgeries: General surgeons also perform breast surgeries for both benign and malignant conditions. This may include lumpectomy (removal of a breast lump), mastectomy (removal of the breast tissue), and lymph node biopsy or dissection.
Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgeries: General surgeons are often involved in procedures related to the thyroid and parathyroid glands. These may include thyroidectomy (removal of all or part of the thyroid gland) and parathyroidectomy (removal of the parathyroid glands).
Soft Tissue Surgeries: General surgeons may also perform surgeries on soft tissues such as skin, muscles, and tendons. This may include procedures to remove skin lesions, treat abscesses, repair traumatic injuries, or remove lipomas (benign fatty tumors).
Emergency Surgeries: General surgeons play a crucial role in emergency situations, such as appendicitis, bowel obstructions, perforated ulcers, or traumatic injuries. They are skilled in performing emergency surgeries to address life-threatening conditions.
Postoperative Care: After surgery, our department provides comprehensive postoperative care to ensure a smooth recovery. This includes pain management, wound care, monitoring for complications, and guidance on postoperative lifestyle modifications and rehabilitation.
The specific treatments recommended for you will depend on your individual condition and will be discussed with you by your surgeon.
We strive to provide the highest quality of care and ensure your comfort and well-being throughout your surgical journey. If you have any further questions or concerns, call 0931-931-1087 please do not hesitate to reach out to our team.
