Surgical department (abdominal surgery)
The department has 6 doctors, 12 nurses.
• Diagnostics and treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, duodenum and pancreas, tumors of the retroperitoneal space, colon and rectum);
• Diagnosis and treatment of early forms of gastric cancer using endoscopic technologies (polypectomy, mucosectomy) and laparoscopic techniques (laparoscopic gastrectomy);
• Carrying out the entire spectrum of radical surgical operations on the stomach and other organs of the gastrointestinal tract: distal and proximal gastric resections, combined and extended gastrectomy for locally advanced gastric tumors involving the esophagus, pancreas or colon;
• Repeated operations on the stomach after previous resections (for non-neoplastic pathology) or in the tumor recurrence;
• Conducting symptomatic and palliative operations for gastric tumors aimed at improving the patients’ quality of life (gastroenterostomy, removal of the organ affected by the tumor in the presence of distant metastases or carcinomatosis);
• Rehabilitation of patients after surgical treatment for stomach tumors.
• Implementation of reconstructive operations after gastric removal with the formation of intestinal reservoirs and various methods of gastroplasty (formation of a "new stomach"), which improve the patient's postoperative quality of life;
• Implementation of the spleen-preservation operation technique, in which cellulose tissue with lymph nodes is removed without removing the spleen;
• Implementation of methods for diagnosing the tumor process prevalence using cytological examination of peritoneal washings during surgery;
• Implementation of methods for preoperative diagnosis of non-epithelial tumors of the stomach using immunocytochemical tests;
• The use of preoperative chemotherapy for stomach cancer.
• Development of new methods of surgical rehabilitation of patients after oncological operations on the stomach.
• Improvement of diagnostic methods for non-epithelial tumors of the stomach.
• Improving gastric cancer surgery results using chemotherapy.
