Rue Saint-Charles 14
General Surgery Department
The General Surgery Department deals with the most common types of surgery.
Its key areas include:
Benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid:
Depending on the disease, partial removal, isolated node removal or sometimes complete removal of the thyroid is carried out. Intraoperative measurement of nerve function (neuromonitoring, also continuous) is routinely used to ensure the vocal cord nerves are protected.
General surgery often tends to overlap with visceral surgery, meaning both departments work closely together at our hospital.
