The surgical department of cfb Medical Center has well-equipped operating theatres for dealing with both elective and emergency cases.

Laparoscopic(keyhole) surgery is also on offer, where indicated.

Elective cases are admitted at a specific pre-booked date and time which is convenient for both the patient and the surgeon. Pre-booked cases always require admission the night prior to surgery. Emergency cases are attended to without any delay.

Our highly experienced resident surgeon (Dr. Akhtaev and Dr. Nzayisenga) and our Obstetrician/Gynaecologist (Dr. Muyuni) are responsible for their respective departments.

The Surgeon also performs Endoscopy which includes a Gastroscopy and a Colonoscopy.

Gastroscopy examines the upper Gastro-intestinal part (GI), while Colonoscopy examines the lower part of the GI tract (rectum, sigmoid, colon).
