General Surgery

General surgery is a discipline based on the principle of repairing diseases that cannot be treated with medication or other medical methods by surgery or healing by cutting the diseased organ. The term “surgery”, whose origin goes back to the Latin word “chirurgiae” and means “handicraft”, is now used in the surgical treatment of many diseases. The Department of General Surgery, which has different fields of study, cooperates with units that have expertise in different subjects such as oncology, endocrinology and traumatology. General Surgery, which is one of the most frequently used areas of new generation medical applications, is a treatment system in which robotic technology is used extensively and successful results are obtained.

Which Diseases Does General Surgery Treat?

The organs where the operations will be performed or the systems to which they are connected are also determinants of which part of the General Surgery will be treated. Thyroid gland (Goiter) surgeries are performed to eliminate the diseases of the patients of the endocrinology department that require surgical treatment. General Surgery works with more than one different department. For the treatment of digestive system diseases, operations such as esophagus (esophagus), small and large intestines, stomach, rectum, liver, gall bladder are performed by General Surgery. Operations are performed by open or closed methods. Endoscopic and laparoscopic systems, which are frequently used among closed surgery methods, contribute positively to the rapid progression of postoperative recovery. For this reason, closed surgery methods are preferred by doctors and patients more recently.

Breast complaints are among the major health problems that women and, in some cases, men also suffer. Surgical removal of benign or malignant formations in the breast is among the topics of General Surgery. General Surgery also functions in terms of preventive medicine, especially in some cases that require follow-up process such as breast. It is essential to follow the patient with preventive medicine methods and to eliminate the problem without the need for surgery.

Oncology patients constitute a significant portion of General Surgery patients. Tumor formations that can occur in different parts of the body are eliminated in cooperation with General Surgery and specialists in the region where the relevant organ is attached. The diagnosis and treatment methods of oncology patients are planned and applied simultaneously by General Surgery and the specialist doctors of the relevant department. Surgery and post-operative treatment methods continue to be carried out with different units such as Pathology, Radiology and Medical Oncology.
