General Surgery

General surgery is a medical specialty that entails performing a variety of surgical procedures to address a wide range of health problems and diseases, particularly those associated with the abdomen and its associated organs as well as those from the thoracic area. These include the bile ducts, liver, pancreas, spleen, appendix, small and large intestine, rectum, stomach, and thyroid.

Mubadala Health's general surgery experts treat patients with a wide range of problems that require surgery, from benign, routine conditions such as hemorrhoids, anal fistula, anal or rectal abscesses, and anal fissures to complex ones such as gallbladder disease et hernia repair. Our surgeons use cutting-edge techniques and treatments, such as minimally invasive and robotic surgery.

They have considerable knowledge of gastrointestinal, abdominal, and endocrine problems and collaborate with a multispecialty team to ensure that your care plan is individualized to your needs.

Some of the most common conditions we treat include:

  • Anorectal disorders, such as hemorrhoids, anal fistula, anal or rectal abscess, and anal fissures
  • Appendicitis
  • Diverticulitis (related digestive conditions that affect the large intestine – colon)
  • Lipoma (a lump of fatty tissue that grows underneath the skin and moves easily when you touch them and feels rubbery, not hard)
  • Pilonidal cyst (an unusual pocket in the skin that usually contains hair and skin debris)
  • Strangulated hernia
  • Thyroid disorders


Because general surgery treats a wide variety of disorders, a variety of symptoms may manifest.

For the gastrointestinal system and intraabdominal organs, symptoms include blood vomiting, trouble swallowing and eating, localized or generalized abdominal discomfort, fever, weight loss, abdominal dilatation, constipation, absence of flatulence, rectal bleeding, and anal or perineal pain.

For abdominal wall problems and emergency general surgery, symptoms include groin pain, groin lump, abdominal lump or bulge, skin lump, redness, and warmth lump.


General surgery pathologies can have a variety of causes, including oncology, benign or malignant, functional, infectious, or mechanical disorders.

Risk factors

  • Aging
  • Blood disease
  • Diabetes
  • Diet high in animal fat and low in fiber
  • Family history of cancer
  • Immune disease
  • Lack of exercise
  • Obesity
  • Smoking

In general surgery, a proper consultation begins with taking the patient's vital signs, height, and weight, followed by a thorough questioning of his medical history (medical and surgical), family history, allergies, medicinal treatments, comorbidities, risk factors, etc.

The next step is the clinical examination, which is the most significant aspect of the consultation, as well as the most crucial aspect for determining the diagnosis and orienting the physician.

Before deciding on surgery, the physician uses a variety of sophisticated diagnostic instruments, including blood tests and imaging tests such as ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, X-ray, fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine, and Pet-scan.


Depending on the pathology, surgical therapy may be performed open, laparoscopically, or robotically.

The purpose of the surgical procedure is to remove a tumor, restore function, correct a mechanical issue, or cure an inflammatory/infectious condition.

Surgery does not solve all medical problems, and it is always preferable to avoid or delay surgery if medical treatment can be considered.

Some of the most common procedures we perform include:

  • Thyroidectomy
  • Lobo-isthmectomy
  • Parathyroidectomy
  • Esophagectomy
  • Gastrectomy partial or total
  • Pancreatectomy
  • splenectomy
  • Hepatectomy
  • Cholecystectomy
  • adrenalectomy
  • Small bowel surgery
  • Appendectomy
  • Colectomy
  • Proctectomy
  • Sphincterotomy
  • Hemorrhoidectomy
  • Abscess incision
  • Subcutaneous lesion excision
  • Pilonidal cyst removal
  • Hernia repair
  • Incisional hernia repair
  • Port-a-Cath insertion


Screening for malignant tumors is crucial. Colorectal carcinoma is the second most common type of cancer for both men and women. It is very important to look for these tumors because their prognosis changes dramatically when found at an early stage. This screening can be performed using a stool test, a Colo-CT scan, or a conventional colonoscopy.

Preparing for your appointment

You will be asked about your current health conditions, the reason for your appointment, and any medications or supplements you are currently taking. It might be more convenient to bring a list to share with the team. Please bring any blood tests, CT scan/MRI photos, reports, or CDs performed elsewhere to your consultation, as these will assist us to avoid repeating tests.
