General and visceral surgery

  • My goal is to offer high quality medical services and to address successfully even the most challenging cases. In order to achieve this objective, investing enough time to a scrupulous medical consultation is of outmost importance. This will allow to pinpoint the surgical problem(s) and to offer the treatment best adapted to each patient.

  • If surgery is indicated, a detailed discussion is undertaken concerning the severity of the disease, the potential need to proceed to surgery on an emergency basis, the details of the surgical intervention, the potential risks in correlation with the patient’s past medical history and comorbidities as well as therapeutic alternatives.

  • A minimally invasive approach is advocated, unless contraindications are present, and a close follow-up in the immediate post-operative period as well as later on allows to achieve the optimal outcomes for the patients.
