Planned surgery, also known as elective surgery, is when an operation is performed on a patient at a favorable time, i.e. a non-acute stage of the illness. During this period, only special methods of examination are able reveal the existence of a disease requiring surgery.
Sometimes when a patient has an acute surgical condition, an intense program of conservative treatment is prescribed. The objective is to reduce the main symptoms (swelling, inflammation, etc.) and to force the disease into remission. Only after certain positive results are achieved, the treatment progresses to the stage of planned surgery.
The planned approach involves a step-by-step, unhurried and organized preparation of the patient for the operation.
At GMS, patients can undergo surgery for a wide range of illnesses affecting:

The preparatory phase of a planned operation begins with diagnostic steps. At GMS Hospital you will undergo the necessary preoperative work-up. This work-up includes various tests and laboratory analyses, carried out on-site at our clinic by highly qualified specialists. This means you won't have to go to any other healthcare facility.
Rehabilitation is a very important phase in the treatment of a patient. Many surgical procedures require a comprehensive postoperative rehabilitation plan to be followed by the patient for an extended period of time. At GMS Hospital, this rehabilitation plan is designed to restore the patient’s full functional and physical activity, for the fastest possible return to a fulfilling and active lifestyle. The rehabilitation plan may include physiotherapy, electrostimulation, UHF treatment, electrophoresis, and much more, depending on the patient's individual case.

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.

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.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.
Our specialists will contact you
