This department cares for patients who may need surgery as a result of a disease or patients that have a severe malfunction in the endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, liver, and the colon. Our physicians are immensely communicative and efficient in explaining the procedures and choices to the family members and show a strong commitment to caring for others. The following are the services under surgery.
Appendicitis is a common condition that requires prompt surgery; the appendix becomes inflamed and if left untreated will eventually burst, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. The discharge might lead to peritonitis, the swelling of the abdominal cavity’s lining which can be fatal unless it treated quickly.
• Laparotomy, Herniotomy, Herniorraphy, Cystostomy and Circumcision.
Ear, nose and throat (ENT) foreign bodies (FBs) are common occurrences and form a major part of emergencies that most people encounter in Nigeria. Although foreign bodies can be organic or inorganic, we have a qualified physician conversant with the standard FBs ingested or aspirated in the community, who is prepared to render adequate and efficient management, prevent complications and reduce morbidities.
