In particular, the department specializes in the abdominal wall surgery, surgical treatment of gastrointestinal diseases (the Abdominal Center and the Bowel Cancer Center) and minimally invasive surgery. Women are offered “scarless” surgical treatment with NOTES technique.
As part of the treatment in general surgery, the department performs a number of thyroid gland surgeries, including those on the parathyroid and adrenal glands, and also deals with the surgical treatment of varicose veins. The medical specialists of the department implant venous port catheter systems for pain treatment, dialysis, artificial nutrition and chemotherapy.

Depending on patient’s wishes, the intervention can be performed under general, epidural or local anesthesia.
