General Surgery

General surgery is a branch of surgery used for the treatment of diseases in various parts of the body. General surgeons can perform surgical procedures in many different areas such as the abdomen, digestive system, endocrine system, breast and skin. General surgery applications include common procedures such as appendicitis, cholecystitis, hernia, hemorrhoids and surgical treatment of the thyroid gland. General surgeons may also perform more complex and vital operations such as post-traumatic injuries, cancer treatment and organ transplants. General surgeons apply a variety of treatment modalities, including surgery when necessary, to improve patients' quality of life and maintain their health.


Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix, a tube at the end of the caecum, in the lower right part of the abdomen. Appendicitis often presents with sudden onset of severe abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and fever.

Hemorrhoids (Hemorrhoids)

Hemorrhoids is a condition that occurs as a result of swelling and inflammation of the veins in the anus area. The most common cause of hemorrhoids is prolonged straining or pressure on the rectum due to constipation or diarrhea.

Small and large intestine problems

The small intestine is the longest part of the digestive tract where most of the nutrient absorption takes place. Small bowel problems can be caused by a variety of conditions, including infections in this area, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), lactose intolerance, celiac disease, and Crohn's disease. The large intestine is the part where undigested materials from the small intestine are stored and excreted as feces. Colon problems include conditions such as constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and diverticulitis.

Stomach Diseases

Stomach diseases are one of the most common digestive system problems. The stomach is an important organ for the digestion of food and the secretion of digestive enzymes. Diseases of the stomach include conditions such as ulcers, reflux, gastritis, gastroparesis and stomach cancer.

Ingrown hair

Ingrown hair is a skin condition that creates a deepening and inflamed tunnel under the skin, starting from a hair root. It usually occurs in areas with hair growth, especially in the armpits, groin and buttocks. It can cause ingrown hairs, pain, redness, swelling and inflammation. If left untreated, infections and severe inflammation can occur. Ingrown hair usually requires surgical intervention and can be resolved with a minor surgery.

Pain, swelling, stiffness or soreness in the breast

Pain, swelling, hardness or pain in the breast is a common complaint in women. These symptoms can have many causes, but the most common causes include breast fibrocysts, mastitis, breast cancer, and hormonal changes. Breast fibrocysts are fluid-filled sacs in the breast that cause stiffness, swelling, and pain. Mastitis is an infection of the breast tissue that usually occurs during or after breastfeeding. Breast cancer is caused by abnormal growth of cells in the breast and can cause breast stiffness, swelling and pain. Hormonal changes can also cause breast pain and are particularly common during the menstrual period. It is important for women experiencing any breast symptoms to talk to their doctor and have a breast exam.
