General Surgery

General surgery specializes in a broad range of surgical procedures focused on diagnosing and treating medical conditions of the gastrointestinal tract and abdominal wall. As a general surgeon, I am involved in the entire surgical process, from the initial patient evaluation to preparation, the procedure, and post-operative management, including elective and emergency scenarios. Considering patient safety, I use the best available technology for all surgical procedures, both open and minimally invasive (laparoscopic), aiming for the best outcomes with the support of a multidisciplinary team of various medical professionals, such as internists and anesthesiologists.
