Why is surgery necessary?

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.

Methods of abdominal surgery

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.

Preparation, diagnostics

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:

Abdominal Surgery
  • laboratory analysis;
  • ultrasound examination of organs of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space;
  • x-ray;
  • CT and MRI imaging;
  • colonoscopy;
  • sigmoidoscopy;
  • electrocardiography (EKG, echocardiogram);
  • consultation with multiple specialists – therapist, gastroenterologist, proctologist, anesthesiologist, etc.

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.

Follow-up care at our facility

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.
