Surgery News at the Military Medical Academy

28. 01. 2013

During 2012, the MMA’s Clinic for General Surgery included in its work the minimally invasive surgery of stomach, small intestine, colon and hiatus hernias. These operative procedures have also been performed earlier at the Military Medical Academy, but only occasionally, with external support and rarely independently. Since 2012, its medical team carries them out absolutely, routinely and daily, which is provided by systematic training of surgeons abroad and all necessary technical conditions. Each of these procedures can be performed by a team of four surgeons and assistance of the others preparing this way for independent work. This placed the MMA’s Clinic for General Surgery among the most modern surgical centers in the world whilst facilitating and accelerating patient’s recovery after complicated operative procedures as well as decreasing the frequency of complications and the other side effects of surgical treatment.
The MMA’s Clinic for General Surgery has a long tradition in performing minimally invasive surgical procedures. For more than 15 years, it daily carries out basic and some of the most progressive laparoscopic procedures. Following the world trends in the field of modern surgery, seven surgeons from the Clinic for General Surgery attended professional training in the best world medical centers for the last five years. In 2012, two surgeons completed three-month training in the Republic of Germany. Within the framework of the most significant Surgery Congresses organized in Belgrade, the workshops with live broadcasted hernia, obesity and colon surgery were presented exactly at the Military Medical Academy. This kind of event which also took place in 2012 had a focus on laparoscopic surgery of groin and hiatal hernias. It gathered highly experienced lecturers and surgeons coming from three continents and more than 20 countries.
