General Surgery Department works together with many disciplines in coordination due to its wide coverage of interest. Majority of General Surgery patients are cancer cases of various types. For diagnosis, operation and planning consequent treatment phases of these patients, we work in collaboration with Gastroenterology, Radiology / Invasive Radiology, Pathology, Medical and Radiation Oncology.
In our General Surgery Departments of our hospitals, we approach the treatment by acknowledging a perspective that every patient is unique and by using advanced diagnosis-treatment methods. Medical and surgical treatment options offered by our Departments is performed by surgical teams who have a high level knowledge on advanced technological device and professional experience
