At our Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals General Surgery Department, we provide our patients with all accepted and applied procedures in the modern medical world. The General Surgery Department is divided into two as outpatient clinic and service.
24-hour service is also provided for patients who apply to the emergency department and need surgical treatment.
The General Surgery Department specialists plan the necessary processes after a comprehensive medical query and examination for all patients who apply for diagnosis or treatment, and continue the services by making assessments in a multidisciplinary approach with other doctors if needed.
Our basic principles are;
minimally invasive approach (laparoscopic and robotic surgical approach).
Our basic principle as a general surgery department is to focus on the patient as a whole, not just the organ to be operated on.
In this way, to minimize the risk of complications while providing maximum benefit to our patient is aimed.
General organ systems examinations of the patient to be operated on are also checked and an effective and safe health service is provided in a modern environment.
· Surgeriy is a team work and the team performs their work with the perfection of a symphony orchestra. As a general surgery department in our hospital, we see all surgeries at that level.
· The most important part of the surgical team is the anesthesia and the intensive care team, and our hospital provides services in this field at the level of many developed countries in the world.
· Since our hospital is one of the leading institutions of our country in cardiology (heart diseases), cardiology support to surgical teams is extremely strong.
· Apart from these, our general surgery team is in multidisciplinary work with internal medicine, gastroenterology, chest diseases, urology, gynecology, oncology, radiology and interventional radiology and all other branches.
· Doctors who do "everything" in today's medicine are obsolete. Because the amount of information that has emerged and continues to emerge is so great that in order to understand and apply a subject in real terms, it is necessary to specialize in limited subjects.
Within the Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals General Surgery we have;
Gastrointestinal (digestive system) surgery
Colorectal (large intestine and anus) surgery
Hepatobiliary and pancreatic (liver, biliary tract and pancreas) surgery
Endocrine (thyroid, adrenal gland, parathyroid) surgery
Breast surgery and operations in basic sub-specialty areas such as obesity surgery.
Our surgeons, who have extensive experience in various fields serve in their own fields.
Minimally Invasive Approach
Today's technology has rendered large incisions unnecessary in many cases. Laparoscopic, endoscopic or robotic surgery practices are becoming more common and more importantly, they are increasingly scientifically accepted.
For medical reasons, we prefer minimally invasive laparoscopic, endoscopic or robotic surgical practices for every suitable patient. Our entire team has training and experience in this field. In the last 5 years, 93% of appendicitis surgeries and 97% of gall bladder operations performed in our hospital have been completed by laparoscopic method.
Other operations we use laparoscopy are as follows;
Inguinal and umbilical hernias
Colon diseases and tumors
Cystic diseases of the liver
Minimally invasive methods allow patients to recover faster, feel less pain, and return to daily life sooner.
For example, when four or five small incisions of approximately one cm are made in the patient's abdomen for an operation instead of a large incision, the wound area to be healed becomes significantly smaller, the pain of these wounds is much less and the risk of hernia formation from these areas is significantly lower than a large wound.
The risk of many complications can be significantly reduced in the postoperative period when used minimal invasive methods; especially respiratory complications where moving and breathing is more comfortable after surgery and also the pain aspect can be eliminated.
Our general surgery department adopts the principle not to part from basic medical facts. In this path, minimally invasive surgery is performed only in suitable cases, and treatment is provided with known traditional surgical procedures in unsuitable cases.
