General Surgery Clinic diagnoses and manages many diseases that are too long to be listed.
Although old surgical techniques dating back several centuries are still used in the field of General Surgery, laparoscopic, endoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries, commonly called minimally invasive surgeries, have becoming increasingly popular thanks to developments in technology.
“Key Hole” Surgeries Help Milder Postoperative Pain and Shorter Hospital Stay
Hospital stays lasting for weeks have been reduced to a few days by laparoscopic, endoscopic and robotic surgeries. In line with the modern medicine, postoperative pains are minimized, such that these pains can be managed with simple painkillers. Damage to intact tissues is minimized by modern surgical techniques, especially the minimally invasive surgery.
Further Specialization Turns Into Further Success
Surgical procedures not covered by any other surgical discipline, including but not limited to gynecology, cardiovascular surgery and neurosurgery, are performed at this clinic. Such a wide range of procedures has made General Surgery Clinic specialize further in certain fields (breast surgery, endocrine surgery, hepatopancreatobiliary surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, obesity surgery, transplantation procedure etc.), although boundaries have not been clearly defined.
It is inevitable that General Surgery Clinic adopts a multidisciplinary approach and works jointly with both diagnostic (laboratory, radiology, pathology) and therapeutic departments (cardiology, nephrology, nuclear medicine, endocrinology, pulmonary medicine, internal medicine etc.) in diagnosis and treatment of relevant diseases.
It deals with benign and malignant tumors and other diseases of the hormone-secreting glands in the body. These diseases include thyroid cancers, thyroid nodules, goiter, tumors and diseases of the parathyroid gland, acute and chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic tumors and adrenal gland diseases and cancers.
It deals with diagnosis and treatment of the breast cancer. The major purpose is to remove the part of the breast infiltrated by the tumor. If this approach is not possible and it is necessary to remove the breast completely, it cooperates with the aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery department for breast reconstruction.
Surgical treatment of diseases and tumors of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum.
It deals with diseases and cancers of the liver, pancreas and bile ducts. The reason why these three organs are addressed in combination is their close anatomical and functional relations to each other.
Bariatric surgery is performed for obesity that cannot be treated with diet, exercise or medication. Further details are available in the section “Obesity Center”.
It is a subdivision of General Surgery Clinic that deals with organ transplants, particularly liver and kidney transplants. For further details, please see the section “Organ Transplant Unit”.
