General Surgery

Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals, Department of General Surgery offers all accepted and recent treatment methods to our patients.

The basic principles of the Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals, Department of General Surgery are;

  • Holistic approach
  • Teamwork
  • Sub-specialization
  • Minimally invasive approach (laparoscopic and robotic surgical approach)

What is the Holistic Approach?

Our experts do not only focus on the organ to be operated, but also on the patient’s well-being in every sense. Therefore, our team

  • aims to minimize complications while providing maximum benefit to our patients.
  • presents an effective and safe healthcare service.

The Teamwork

We believe that every surgery depends on a seamless team work, and successful teamwork brings the perfection of a symphony orchestra.

The most important part of the surgical team is anesthesia and intensive care team. Our institution provides the same high-quality services as services in many developed countries.

Since our hospital is one of the leading institutions of our country in cardiology (heart disease), cardiology support to surgical teams is extremely advanced.

Additionally, our general surgical team is accustomed to collaborative work with other medical disciplines such as internal diseases, gastroenterology, thoracic diseases, urology, gynecology, oncology, radiology and interventional radiology according to patient needs.


In today’s medical world, physicians who claim to “do everything” are out. Since advances in medical technology, and literature are so prominent, sub-specialization has become necessary.

Sub-specialization fields in General Surgery

  • Gastrointestinal (digestive system) surgery
  • Colorectal (large intestine and anus) surgery
  • Hepatobiliary and pancreatic (liver, biliary tract and pancreas) surgery
  • Endocrine (thyroid, adrenal gland, parathyroid) surgery
  • Breast surgery
  • Obesity surgery.

Minimally Invasive Approach

Advanced medical technology has enabled us to work through small incisions in many types of operations. Applications of laparoscopic, endoscopic or robotic surgery, namely minimally invasive surgery, have been increasingly widespread.

Our entire team is highly experienced in minimally invasive surgery; in the last 5 years, 93% of the appendectomies, and 97% of gallbladder surgeries cholecystectomy) are performed by using laparoscopic method.

Other surgeries in which we use laparoscopy are;

  • Inguinal and umbilical hernia
  • Stomach hernias
  • Diseases and tumors of the colon (large bowel)
  • Ulcer punctures
  • Cystic diseases of the liver
  • Spleen operations
  • Intra-abdominal biopsies

Minimally invasive surgery provides fast recovery, less pain, and early return to everyday life. Moreover, risk of complications after surgery are markedly decreased. Firmly attached to basic medical principles, we perform minimally invasive surgery only in appropriate cases.
