The General Surgery Division – with its 52 beds – is located on the 4th floor of the main building, in the grey sector. In both the male and female sections, patients are hospitalized in wards with 4-6 beds. Besides, there are two semi-private wards with 2 beds per ward in both sections, where separate sanitary units, central oxygen system and suction systems are also available. Therefore, at the specific request of the patient, it is possible for patients to be admitted to one of these wards, or be separated, if necessary. Potentially infectious patients are isolated in other, separated wards.
We would like to highlight that at our division there is also a monitored and air-conditioned postoperative ward available with 8 beds with state-of-the-art equipment, where – due to the good relationship we maintain with the related specialties – specialists can provide continuous intensive care.
Currently, our division can provide the medical background necessary for the vascular surgery related care for more than 440,000 residents; vascular surgery services are provided on 10 vascular surgery beds designated for this purpose.
In line with the requirements of the 21st century, in 2007 we were among the first in Hungary to open our same-day surgery unit on the first floor of the Hospital, where same-day surgical interventions are carried out in a separate unit with 6 beds. Today, the General Surgery Division continues its work with the Institute of Surgery, the Traumatology Division, the Orthopedics, the Hand Surgery Division and the Urology Division, by the name of Same-day Surgery Centre.
Since 1987, surgery, trauma surgery and urological operations have been performed in the Central Operating Room, which was modernized in 2007 to meet the requirements of our age and is also undergoing constant modernization. In the Central Operating Room there are 2 surgical tables, and within the framework of same-day surgery there is 1 extra surgical table available for the treatment of our patients.
Furthermore, we have 1 examination room and 2 suture rooms for postoperative dressing changes and undisturbed inpatient examination.
Our areas of surgical specialization include general surgery, tumor removal surgery, laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery and vascular surgery.
