General Surgery Department

General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty focusing on the abdominal organs. It also deals with surgical procedures for the oesophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, and also the thyroid gland and hernias. Broad types of surgeries performed:

  • Elective surgery
  • Emergency surgery
  • Exploratory surgery
  • Therapeutic surgery
  • Amputation
  • Replantation
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Excision
  • Laser surgery
  • Minimally invasive surgery (Laparoscopic Surgery)

General Surgeons deal with a broad range of less emergent procedures- depending on the specialisation of the Surgeon. Procedures such as those for the treatment of varicose veins, circumcision, vasectomies and skin cancer removal are often conducted by General Surgeons.

Surgery is used to both as a treatment, and also complementary to drug therapies, for many conditions, including: • Physical trauma, e.g. wounds • Anatomical Abnormalities • Disorders of function • Inflammation • Ischaemia and infarction • Metabolic disorders • Neoplasia • Other abnormalities of tissue growth, e.g. cysts, hyperplasia or Organ hypertrophy, as well as some cancers, if caught early enough • Deformity and heavy scarring. • Brain damage and nerve damage, and various other conditions.
