The concept of “specialized surgeon” in general surgery
General surgery which is one of the most important and wide range areas of the medicine; gradually gives its place to private surgery due to the diseases and various treatments of organs which is an area of interest in general surgery, as well as rapid development of technology and increased diversity of surgical techniques in terms of development in these areas. Therefore, the “general surgeon” who focus on every subject also gains a “special surgeon” status by specializing in different areas of general surgery.

Patients have an opportunity to get quality service in all sub-branches of general surgery without seeking a specialist.

Treatment of benign tumors and cancers of the breast in our breast center; surgical techniques, personalized surgical approaches, provision of patient comfort, and multidisciplinary understanding are simultaneously applied in the most advanced centers of the world. In breast cancer, only removal of the tumor part and protection of the breast integrity are taken as a basis. If tumors develop at some focal points of the breast at the same time, mastectomy, which is the removal of whole breast, is performed together with plastic and reconstructive surgeries in the same session in order to provide breast aesthetics, so the patient’s risk of organ loss is eliminated.
These are the surgical treatments applied in the diseases of the endocrine glands that require surgery. Benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid gland, nodular goiter, toxic nodular goiter, thyroid cancer, parathyroid gland diseases, adrenal gland diseases and tumors, surgical treatment of benign diseases and tumors in pancreas are performed within the scope of endocrine surgery. Special procedures are applied to prevent sound losses and bleeding that adversely affect patient comfort in the thyroid and parathyroid surgery at the General Surgery Center of Bona Dea International Hospital. The risk of bleeding is reduced by closing the vessel at the required place with the support of “energy devices” that is used during surgery. During the surgical procedures, nerve monitorization is also used to protect vocal cords that enable an individual to speak, and the surgeon is able to control the function of the nerve during the procedure.
