General Surgery

İstanbul Cerrahi General Surgery Department works in cooperation with several disciplines in order to offer the best service to the patients and as the General Surgery field covers a wide range of areas. The Anesthesiology - Reanimation Department works to ensure that the patient is prepared for the surgical intervention before the operation, and recovers in the most stable way after the surgery. Additionally, the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Departments also start to work immediately to ensure that the patients return to their previous life as soon as possible.

Laparoscopic Surgery
Our doctors practice the Laparoscopic Surgery, which is known as "Bloodless Surgery" in gall bladder, appendicitis, inguinal hernia, gastrocoele surgeries as well as large intestine, suprarenal gland, liver and spleen surgeries that require advanced laparoscopic surgery techniques. Since there is no standard operative incision in Laparoscopic Surgery, the aesthetic result is perfect and the post-operative pain is minimal. The patients can be discharged within 1 day, and return to their normal lives within a week.

Endoscopy Unit
At our Endoscopy Unit, gastroscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography) procedures as well as endoscopic interventions (dilatation in esophageal stricture, stent for cancers, attachment of feeding tubes, stopping of bleeding) are easily performed. Thanks to our special sterilization unit, the risk of contamination is eliminated in endoscopic practices and the endoscopy procedure is performed more safely.
