Gastroenterological Surgery Efforts

Gastrointestinal cancers range from cancers of hollow organs such as the esophagus, stomach, and large intestine to cancers of solid organs such as the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas.Our department of gastroenterological surgery strives to provide high-quality diagnosis and treatment for such gastrointestinal cancers.

Treatment is performed according to guidelines, and in addition to surgery, multidisciplinary treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy are performed.

A word to patients
