General Surgery

General surgery is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment – surgical when applicable – of diseases of the digestive system, endocrine diseases (thyroid and adrenal glands), breast pathology and abdominal wall hernias.

In Hospital da Luz Lisboa, the majority of general surgery procedures are frequently performed through minimally invasive surgery.

Nowadays, robotic surgery is also commonly used in gastric bypass (obesity surgery) and in rectum cancer surgery.
