About the general surgery clinic

At the general surgery clinic we offer medical consultations, consultations aimed at assessing fitness for surgery, postoperative check-ups and care, which includes change of dressing and removal of the sutures.

We diagnose and treat abdominal pains, conditions of the gallbladder, bile ducts, intestines, oesophagus, diseases of the pancreas and livers, hernias, skin lesions (lipomas, sebaceous cyst, and pigmented naevi), diseases of the nails, injuries, burns and frostbites, skin infections and other. The offer of outpatient surgical treatment also includes minor surgical procedures, i.e. removal of minor skin lesions, such as warts, naevi and keloids; also, management of wounds, ulcers and slow-healing wounds. All procedures are performed with local anaesthesia in a treatment room equipped with the complete surgical instrumentation. If necessary, material is collected at the clinic for histopathological and cytological examination (fine- and core needle biopsy, vacuum assisted biopsy of breast lumps, lymph node biopsy). At the general surgery clinic we also provide patients with a full range of ultrasound diagnostic services which enable imaging of tissues and internal organs. These include ultrasound scans of the abdominal cavity, kidneys, thyroid, testicles, lymph nodes, scrotum and salivary glands.
