Abdominal surgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of diseases of the organs and walls of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space. Specialists at the GMS Hospital surgery center have a thorough knowledge of modern surgical methods and techniques. Thanks to the use of low-impact technologies, most operations are performed without the need for extended hospital stays.
Abdominal surgeons treat a wide array of diseases and disorders of the abdominal organs, arising from many different causes:
Medical care at the GMS Hospital surgical center means experienced specialists, gentle treatment methods and technologies, safe and modern anesthesia, and quick rehabilitation without the risk of complications.
Disorders of the digestive tract and retroperitoneal organs almost always have telltale symptoms. You should seek the advice of an abdominal surgeon if the following clinical signs appear:
Immediately consult a doctor if you experience similar symptoms:
We perform both elective and emergency surgical interventions. Emergency surgery can be performed at any time of the day or night, within an hour after a comprehensive diagnosis at our surgical center.
The use of modern equipment and minimally invasive techniques make it possible to perform operations with minimal trauma and the best clinical results. Sign up for a consultation with a GMS Hospital abdominal surgeon by phone or online.
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:
The specific diagnostic tests required for a given clinical case are chosen by the surgeon, based on the results of the examination.
The GMS Surgery Center performs a full range of operations to treat diseases and pathological conditions of the digestive organs and the retroperitoneal area:
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.
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:
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.
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.

I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.
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
