General Surgery includes all diseases that do not fall under another surgical specialisms, this is why General Surgery is the core of all surgical specialties. The general surgery department within Acibadem specializes abdominal wall hernia's (eg groin hernia, umbilical hernia's, incisional hernia's), gallstone disease and anal problems (proctology) such as hemorrhoids. Our team consists of 2 surgeons (Dr. Surya Biere and Drs. Dashti Faraj) who are specialized in these conditions.
The large number of treatments within the (general) surgery department is performed by a dedicated team that also consists of permanent doctor's assistants, nurses and surgical assistants who have a lot of experience with this problem.
The first consultation can usually take place the next day after referral from the general practitioner. The waiting time until the operation is a maximum of 2 weeks. Our aim is to make your visit efficient and not too burdensome for you: you will have to deal with 1 permanent surgeon who has time and attention for you and who does the first consultation, treatment and aftercare at the outpatient clinic; any additional examinations such as an ultrasound can often be done on the same day; the doctors use keyhole surgery techniques (laparoscopy), which means that the patients often have less pain after the operation and recover faster.
- Patients with gallstone disease are operated on by means of keyhole surgery and often stay overnight in one of our luxurious single rooms.
- Patients with inguinal hernias are operated on as day treatment within our Inguinal Hernia Center where the care is specifically focused on this condition according to the latest scientific insights.
- Many people suffer from anal complaints. For some of them it is a barrier to go to the doctor about this. But often the treatments are simple and very effective, so that people often get rid of their complaints quickly. In addition, these treatments may immediately during the first consultation. This does not require any preparation such as bowel cleansing (laxation).
- In addition, outpatient operations are also performed under local anesthesia for e.g. swelling of the skin (including fat bumps, sebaceous glands) and ingrown toenails. These can be done directly during the office hours or, if desired, take place at a later time.
