General Surgery

Our General Surgery Clinic was founded by experienced physicians who value sub-specialties. Care was taken to include the branches that are the most prevalent surgical diseases nationwide.

Gastrointestinal surgery
The treatment of gastric and intestinal surgical diseases has made great progress in improving endoscopic and laparoscopic surgical techniques. Our Department of General Surgery is particularly experienced in the early detection and endoscopic and laparoscopic treatment of colon disease.

Liver, pancreas, bile duct surgery
Recent developments in oncological treatment open up new possibilities in the treatment of liver and pancreatic tumors. In addition to experienced surgeons, the multidisciplinary center, set up with interventional radiology, endoscopy and oncology specialists, offers the entire country a new opportunity in the treatment of liver and pancreatic diseases.

Breast Clinic
The Breast Clinic provides patients with a uniform structure with polyclinics, small intervention and recovery rooms, mammography and ultrasound rooms. The medical care is provided under the direction of the Tumor Committee, consisting of specialists in the fields of general surgery, radiology, pathology, medicine and radiooncology. Through physical integrity and medical collaboration, patients are given a chance at diagnosis and treatment without having to change location.

Thyroid Clinic
The treatment of thyroid patients requires, in addition to the operation, the involvement of specialists in the field of endocrinology and nuclear medicine. Patients in our hospital's thyroid clinic receive treatment following the protocols developed by specialists in these three industries.
General Surgery of the TOTM has been organized to examine and treat patients in the current hospitals, medical centers and outpatient centers. Inpatient, outpatient and emergency services are available around the clock.
Regular, weekly trainings evaluate the measures carried out or evaluated. These meetings will also produce guidelines in collaboration with the relevant units to achieve consensus in clinical practice. Conferences and panels involving group and guest lecturers are organized, and as a result, an exchange of information takes place between colleagues from different groups. Periodic meetings are held with industry in the sector to launch new products, and platforms are created to discuss current issues.
At the TOTM, radiological examinations (X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance, angiography, cholangiography), endoscopy and percutaneous biopsy procedures are performed in consultation with relevant specialists to obtain data for patient care planning and treatment.

Following are the disease groups that are being studied, diagnosed and treated by the Department of General Surgery:
Breast cancer and benign breast diseases

A harmonious relationship with other units and an operating room infrastructure equipped with modern technology also play a role in achieving the expected clinical outcomes.
