Abdominal surgery is concerned with diseases of the organs of the digestive tract, the diaphragm and other abdominal organs such as the spleen and endocrine glands (for example the thyroid). In the hospitals, surgeons use both conventional surgical techniques (laparotomy) and also ultramodern minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy. Abdominal surgery also includes endocrinological procedures, surgery of the mammary glands, surgical oncology and proctology (diseases of the anus and rectum).
