Preparation, diagnosis, primary reception

An abdominal consultation begins with questions about the patient’s medical history. The doctor will inquire about symptoms, ask a number of clarifying questions, and perform an examination to assess the patient’s general condition and the severity and prevalence of clinical symptoms. To obtain a complete picture of the disease, various tests may be prescribed:

Abdominal surgeon
  • blood and urine tests, stool analysis;
  • radiography;
  • CT scan, MRI (with and without contrast);
  • Abdominal ultrasound;
  • ECG;
  • biopsy;
  • colonoscopy;
  • fibrogastroduodenoscopy;
  • rectoscopy;
  • Consultation with an anesthesiologist and other specialists (if indicated).

The specific diagnostic tests required for a given clinical case are chosen by the surgeon, based on the results of the examination.

What operations are performed by an abdominal surgeon

The GMS Surgery Center performs a full range of operations to treat diseases and pathological conditions of the digestive organs and the retroperitoneal area:

  • non-tensioned hernioplasty (open and laparoscopic);
  • appendectomy;
  • resection of the sigmoid colon (sigmoidectomy);
  • cholecystectomy with choledocholithomia;
  • colostomy;
  • stenting of the biliary tract;
  • gastrectomy;
  • surgery for polyps, cysts, diverticula, tumor formation, ulcers;
  • colon surgery (hemicolectomy);
  • splenectomy (removal of the spleen);
  • resection of the transverse colon;
  • reconstructive interventions on the stomach, duodenum, etc.

By using the latest endoscopes and low-impact techniques, our physicians can significantly reduce the duration and invasiveness of treatment and significantly speed up the recovery.

Available treatments

If surgical treatment is required, the abdominal surgeon does not need to transfer the patient to another specialist. The treatment approach is selected by the doctor based on the test results and the comprehensive examination. Indications for emergency hospitalization and emergency surgical intervention are:

  • bleeding;
  • purulent-inflammatory processes;
  • injuries of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space;
  • intestinal obstructions and other emergency conditions.

For elective (planned) surgery, the doctor first carries out all necessary pre-operative measures, and provides the patient with medical support in the postoperative period. The patient is admitted either on the day of the surgery or the day before (depending on the individual case). In most cases, hospitalization lasts no more than 1-3 days.

The abdominal surgeon will design a rehabilitation plan that will reduce recovery time to a minimum. Sign up at any time for a consultation with an abdominal surgeon at GMS Hospital, by phone or online.
