The Division of General Surgery at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), in partnership with Mayo Clinic, is proud to offer patients the highest level of care for all general surgical conditions. Our surgeons provide traditional open surgical approaches, as well as the latest minimally invasive and robotic technologies whenever possible to improve patient outcomes and maximize the patient experience. Our British and American board-certified experts are leaders in their fields and have expertise in endoscopy, upper endoscopy and colonoscopy.
Utilizing a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to personalized care, our surgeons work closely with experts from other specialties to diagnose, treat and provide the most effective surgical interventions for common, complex, benign and malignant conditions, including:
HIPEC is a unique surgery used to treat cancers in the abdominal cavity. It is a highly beneficial surgery as it has fewer side effects than regular chemotherapy and destroys cancer cells that can't be reached surgically by directly applying heated chemotherapy in the abdomen.
Conducted by our multidisciplinary team of physicians, the first step is to surgically remove all the visible cancerous tumors and the second is killing the residual cancerous cells by administering high doses of heated chemotherapy inside the abdomen.
Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) is a two-day, interactive course, which includes mandatory, pre-course e-learning. It covers the practical skills and knowledge that health care professionals need to effectively care for surgical patients, including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.
