About us

The Department of Surgery of the Institute of Surgery in Brno with a long tradition provides care for surgical patients in the entire range of general surgery, including thoracic surgery, diagnostics, surgery, follow-up treatment and dispensary care of selected groups of patients. Emphasis is placed especially on urgent and acute conditions in continuous interaction with the diagnostic complex, consisting of the endoscopy centre, the imaging centre and other complement units. Early diagnosis significantly reduces the time needed to perform planned or acute surgery. Cavity injuries and severe post-operative conditions are managed as part of the consultative activity for severe trauma. In addition to acute conditions, the focus is on elective surgeries, the most common being gallbladder, hernia and appendectomy, as well as more extensive surgical procedures such as bowel, stomach, pancreas, thyroid resection, including cancer. About 70% of all procedures are performed minimally invasively using laparoscopic technique. Patients are also provided with an extended range of procedures by urologists, gynaecologists, stoma surgeons, reconstructive and plastic surgeons. This multi-disciplinary approach ensures excellence in the quality of procedures and facilities provided with state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative care.
