Surgeons also provide emergency medical care for traumatic injuries, burns, animal bites and other conditions requiring urgent treatment. This is one of the most physically demanding, responsible, and multifaceted medical specialties. The surgeons at GMS Hospital have many years of practice at well-known Russian and foreign clinics.

Preparation, diagnosis

To confirm or clarify the diagnosis, surgeons have at their disposal an extensive array of laboratory tests and instrumental techniques, including:

  • X-ray;
  • ultrasound, CT and MRI;
  • endoscopic techniques - arthroscopy, urethroscopy, colonoscopy, gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy, hysteroscopy, etc.

You can complete a comprehensive series of tests in just 1–2 days. For medical emergencies, when surgical procedures must be performed as quickly as possible, all the necessary preoperative tests take no more than one hour.

What to expect after your appointment with a GMS surgeon

When designing the treatment plan, surgeons at GMS Hospital use a systematic approach, i.e. diagnostics, surgery and rehabilitation are carried out within the same medical institution. Thanks to the use of combined laser, radiowave and endoscopic operative technologies, patients stay at the clinic for a maximum of 1–2 days, and for outpatient procedures, 2–3 hours.

At the consultation, the surgeon assesses all of the patient’s medical parameters - their general condition, the results of the lab tests, and any contraindications - and decides on a course of treatment. If the patient’s medical condition requires immediate surgical intervention, he or she is immediately admitted for treatment and the operation is performed as soon as possible. For elective surgery, the doctor will set a date, give instructions for preoperative preparation. The surgeon will also design a rehabilitation program, and will closely observe the patient’s progress during the postoperative period. Sign up for a consultation with a surgeon at GMS Hospital, online or by telephone.
