At the Abdominal Surgery Center at GMS Hospital we perform operations on the stomach, spleen, liver, gall bladder, and small and large intestine. Our specialists use modern, low-impact methods such as endoscopy that minimize surgical trauma and significantly reduce recovery time.
The Abdominal Surgery Center at GMS Hospital has at its disposal an entire arsenal of the most advanced equipment for the treatment of diseases and pathologies of the abdominal cavity. The primary challenge for our specialists is ensuring minimal trauma to organs and tissues during interventions, while preserving their function to the greatest extent possible. The hospital has a modern surgical ward, an intensive care unit, and a sufficient number of comfortable in-patient rooms.
Each patient that comes to us for medical care can expect:
Our surgical units are equipped with the necessary modern medical equipment for performing operations at the highest level. A large portion of our surgical operations are done using laparoscopic methods. An individual treatment plan is created for each patient, based on the specifics of his or her clinical case. Abdominal surgery at GMS means not only a perfectly performed surgical operation, but also effective rehabilitation, with all the required steps to ensure the fastest possible restoration of full health.
At GMS Hospital we perform almost all types of abdominal surgery:
The use of precision diagnostic equipment makes it possible to detect pathologies at the initial stages of development and to choose optimal surgical tactics for achieving the best possible treatment results.
You should speak with a surgeon if you have any of the following symptoms:
Immediately contact a doctor in the event of trauma to the abdominal cavity. The following are indications for surgical intervention:
Our doctors have many years of experience with abdominal surgery, and can quickly and precisely diagnose your illness and select the optimal treatment plan for you.
Surgical treatment of diseases of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space is performed when conservative methods prove ineffective, as well as by way of an independent treatment for life-threatening diseases that require immediate intervention. We carry out both planned and emergency operations. Surgery plans are developed on an individual basis, always preceded by a comprehensive medical examination.
The primary challenge of modern abdominal surgery is to ensure minimal trauma to tissues and organs during the surgical intervention, with maximum preservation of their functions. A large number of the operations performed at the GMS abdominal surgery center are done using laparoscopic equipment.
During these operations, surgeons work through several small incisions made in the anterior abdominal wall, through which they insert the necessary instruments, which are connected to a video camera. The doctor performs the operation using a monitor, which shows an enlarged image of the surgical area. This allows targeted intervention that does not affect the healthy surrounding tissue.
In order to avoid the negative consequences of surgical intervention and the development of serious complications, each of our patients undergoes a comprehensive examination. We use the most advanced diagnostic methods available:
The diagnostic methods needed for your treatment will be determined by the doctor at the consultation. In order to verify the state of health, other types of medical investigation may be required. You can undergo a comprehensive, preoperative examination with us in just one day.
Proper postoperative follow-up care is an essential part of the treatment process. The final result of an operation ultimately depends on how well the follow-up is conducted. GMS Hospital has at its disposal a wide range of technologically-advanced recuperative therapies, helping our patients return to full health in the fastest possible time. Recovery programs are designed on an individual basis, sensibly alternating periods of patient rest with exercise done under scrupulous medical supervision.
The Abdominal Surgery Center at GMS Hospital offers:
If you have been advised to undergo surgical treatment, and you want to find a top clinic to perform the operation, sign up for a consultation with a GMS Hospital specialist. We will provide you with the most comprehensive information available on your specific medical issue.
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
