Treatment

The application of minimally invasive surgery in the abdomen and chest is our primary goal. We use laparoscopy and thoracoscopy instead of open surgeries, thus provide many benefits to our patients, as safer and faster surgery, excellent outcome, minimum postoperative pain, shorter of hospitalization time, as well as, an excellent aesthetic result.

Procedures

Before the surgery, preoperative check is mandatory. In most cases, we need only complete blood count and serum glucose. Depending on the background history of our small patient and the current disease, we need the following exams:

Laboratory tests:

  • Full  blood count
  • Biochemistry
  • Hormonal tests

Imaging tests:

  • Radiography x-Ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Barium swallow test, Cystography
  • CT scan
  • MRI
