What is General Surgery?
General surgery is a technical branch comprising general principles (such as wound healing, metabolic and endocrine response to injury) as well as surgical and systemic treatment of general problems and several surgical and basic medical branches in the context of their development.
The Department of General Surgery collaborates and coordinates with many other branches of medicine as needed. Most general surgery patients constitute various types of cancer cases. In the planning of the stages of diagnosis, surgery and subsequent treatment of these patients, we work in collaboration with Gastroenterology, Radiology / Interventional Radiology, Pathology, Medical and Radiation Oncology.
General surgery also helps in traumatology. Trauma patients often have to accompany the departments of orthopedics, neurosurgery, urology, cardiovascular surgery due to injury to various organs. All these medical branches are coordinated by the Department of General Surgery, especially in serious injuries to various organs.
All elective and emergency general surgical operations of the abdomen, face, neck, breast, chest, genitals and extremities are performed. Common surgical operations performed are appendicitis, gallstones, hernia, hydrocele, fistula in ano, fissure in ano, piles, circumcision, intestinal obstruction, gastric perforation, typhoid or tubercular perforation of the ileum, fibroadenoma axis, breast lumps For biopsy, breast preservation surgery, thyroidectomy, hysterectomy, ovarian cyst or tumor excision, kidney stones, bladder stones, prostate surgery, removal of lumps, dissection, wound dehiscence, pus removal, scar removal, skin grafting etc.
What is the purpose of general surgery?
Surgery, whether elective or necessary, is performed for several reasons. A patient may undergo surgery for the following reasons:
- To find out the condition for further diagnosis
- For biopsy of a suspected lump
- To remove damaged tissues or organs
- To remove an obstacle
- To bring one’s reposition structures to their normal state
- To transplant tissue or whole organ
- To implant mechanical or electronic equipment
- To improve body structure
Depending on the diagnosis, a patient has several surgery options:
Elective or elective surgery-
Any process you choose, which brings no quality in life. For example, removing a mole or wart.
A process that must be carried out to ensure quality of life in the future. For example, kidney stones will be removed if medication and other forms of treatment are not working. Necessary surgery, unlike emergency surgery, should not necessarily be performed immediately.
Urgent or emergency surgery-
Such surgery is performed in response to an immediate medical condition, such as acute appendicitis.
