Abdominal surgery focus is responsible for hernia repair (inguinal hernias and anterior abdominal wall hernias), thyroid, stomach, liver, colon and rectum, gallbladder diseases. The scope of tasks also includes planned interventions to resect benign and malignant diseases of the pancreas and esophagus. In many cases, operations can be performed using minimally invasive technique.
An important area of the department's work is the surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, in which the acid contents of the stomach enter the esophagus. Heartburn and belching are the most common symptoms of this pathology. The most common cause of the development of the disease is diaphragmatic hernia. In most cases, the doctors perform minimally invasive operations using special tools and a miniature camera. This type of surgery has several advantages, in particular the absence of pain syndrome, small postoperative scars and a short hospital stay.
The department is a recognized Center for Cancer Surgery. The doctors are also increasingly using minimally invasive techniques to treat malignancies. Particular focus is on surgery to treat intestinal, cecal, pancreatic, liver and esophageal tumors. Oncological diseases require a careful diagnostics before treatment planning.
