History General Surgery
     Surgical Excellence, Balancing between new innovation and traditional surgery, Compassionate academic surgeons The Division of General Surgery, section of Gastrointestinal (GI) and General Surgery is one of the active core component of the Department of Surgery. Our general and gastrointestinal surgical faculties are leading providers of minimally invasive and traditional surgical techniques to treat gastrointestinal, colorectal, hernia, and other complex conditions. We strive to provide a full range of educational and research opportunities for physicians, nurses, and patients in the treatment of gastrointestinal and general surgical diseases. Individualized care and “less is more” are the hallmarks of our programs. Patients receive state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care from a team. Additionally, this service provides complete diagnostic and therapeutic use of laparoscopy and endoscopy for diverse problems such as gastrointestinal bleeding, polyps, and cancer. Faculties also conduct clinical research and other investigations to improve the ability to diagnose and treat patients with all types of gastrointestinal and general surgery. It is through such research that clinicians improve current modalities and develop future treatments and care. These include • Assessment of new therapies for all stages of gastrointestinal malignancies, gastrointestinal diseases, hemorrhoids, anal fissure, anal fistula, hernia, acute and chronic wound. • Quality-of-life and perioperative management (pain, ERAS, surgical infection) studies. • Analysis of tissue, blood, and tumor samples to better understand the pathophysiology of the diseases and relationship to patient outcomes
