The General Surgery Department at the American Hospital has provided our patients with up-to-date treatments under optimal conditions for 25 years by closely observing and incorporating all scientific surgical advancements. Our team is always growing and evolving; each team member not only follows the most advanced treatment approaches, but also employs new technology and methods in a short period of time. Our clinic, which performs approximately 2500 surgeries a year, is among the leading clinics operating in this field in Turkey.
 
Our physicians always prioritize patient safety and they inform patients and relatives about procedures at all stages and provide healthcare service in line with ethical principles.

Our department is especially distinguished in terms of the importance we attach to our collaborative and multidisciplinary approach; we combine the most advanced surgical and medical treatment modalities with proven efficiency of all relevant disciplines under the title “Digestive Health Service Line” and we provide our patients with these treatments in a holistic manner.
 
Moreover, all diagnostic procedures and treatment options are discussed in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Council, Breast Diseases Council, Endocrinology and Endocrine Surgery Council, and Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Council with a multidisciplinary approach adopted for all cases. Thus, the most optimal treatment options for our patients are decided jointly by physicians originating from relevant departments and a subsequent customized treatment is planned for each patient. Patients can only undergo their optimal personalized treatments after they have been informed of every aspect of said procedure in detail.
 
The General Surgery Department maintains its qualification as being the most important center of its kind due to state-of-the-art equipment, innovative surgical techniques and highly qualified medical personnel; the clinic’s fundamental aim is to optimize the provision of healthcare services for diagnosis, treatment and follow up of diseases.
