General and Abdominal Surgery Department

Doctors of the Department specialize in the surgical treatment of abdominal cavity, endocrine system pathologies, and obstetrics.


What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgeries are carried out through the 5-10 mm incisions. Doctors use special instruments and a mini camera to remove the tumor, cysts or polyps. The medical team controls the surgery process on the monitor. It allows a doctor to operate with high accuracy without damaging the healthy organs.

Among the advantages of the method are:

  • boosted injury recovery
  • minimal painful sensation after the surgery
  • an absence of big scars
  • the admission term is shorter than after traditional intervention.


Minimally invasive surgery training

Oncological surgery

Doctors specialize in stomach, colon, liver, pancreas, and esophagus cancers treatment. Surgical tumor removal is combined with chemo- and radiation therapies.

The treatment plan is developed individually for each patient, doctors discuss the advanced cases during the consilliums. Oncologists, radiologists, chemotherapists, hematologists and others meet together to consider the patient’s case. It allows choosing the most effective and safe treatment plan.

Specialists of the Department apply a minimally invasive surgical method to treat such diseases:

  • esophageal cancer
  • a stomach tumor
  • duodenal cancer
  • small-celled intestinal cancer
  • a tumor of the colon or rectum
  • pancreas cancer
  • metastases in the liver.

Cancer Center

Doctors of the Center specialize in the therapy of breast, colon, prostate, head and neck cancers.

Oncologists use such methods as:

  • Chemotherapy — cancer treatment with drugs. Doctors apply special “cold cap” to avoid hair loss during the treatment.
  • Targeted therapy — application of the drugs which directly influence a particular type of malignant cells. Targeted therapy causes much fewer side effects than standard chemotherapy.
  • Immunotherapy is a treatment with medicines that activate own patient’s immune system to kill cancer cells.
  • Combined chemotherapy is a simultaneous cycle of chemo- and radiotherapies. This method is more effective for cancer treatment than chemo- and radiation treatments separately.

Heart Surgery Department

Doctors of the Department specialize in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The surgeries are conducted in the hybrid operating theatres, where all the necessary equipment for open and minimally invasive operations is available.

TAVI — transcatheter aortic valve implantation without big skin incisions

Cardiac surgeons have been performed TAVI since 2010. The procedure is carried out through a fine tube (catheter), which is inserted in the femoral or carpal arteries. The implant is placed at the fine tube edge. Doctors control the intervention process using X-ray apparatus.

The procedure is less traumatic in comparison with the open surgery. A patient is discharged from the hospital in 1-3 days after TAVI.

Valve replacement applying Japanese Dr. Ozaki’s method

It is a state-of-the-art operation during which doctors place biological valve made of patient’s pericardial sac.

The procedure is conducted through a small incision between ribs in most of the cases.

The biological valve replants better than mechanic one, and a patient does not need to take the anti-clotting medicines for a lifetime.
