General and Digestive Surgery

General and Digestive Surgery

General Surgery is the medical speciality responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that are treated using surgical procedures.

Surgical Techniques and Applications

In the General and Digestive Surgery Unit at Hospital Dr. Gálvez, we perform most of the complex surgical procedures using the non-invasive laparoscopic technique.

Use of this technique reduces hospital stays, post-operation discomfort and the patient’s recovery time.

At Hospital Dr. Gálvez, we also carry out all of the typical interventions in general surgery, such as endocrine, varicose veins, appendix, abdominal wall, cyst surgery, etc. as well as procedures with a short hospital stay (24 hours or less), in tumour and skin disease surgery, biopsies, (benign and malignant) etc., problems with hernias in the abdominal wall (umbilical, inguinal, or those produced after interventions) and anorectal conditions (fissures, haemorrhoids, fistulas).
