Department of Surgery
The Department of Surgery aims to provide the highest quality of surgical care to its patients in accordance with international norms of excellence. Our surgeons strive to advance the art and science of surgical care and to train future leaders in surgery. The Departmental philosophy of quality and safety in surgery manifests in its active participation in quality improvement initiatives and strong emphasis on continuing education of its faculty and staff. This has resulted in the progressive development of new sub-specialties within the Department, and has enabled AKUH to offer state-of-the art surgical procedures to the people it serves.
The Department of Surgery has 63 full-time and 23 non full-time faculty members, as well as two faculty members who are jointly appointed with Departments of Biological & Biomedical Sciences and Educational Development, and two Research Faculty. The faculty contributes extensively to the Department’s three core missions: excellent clinical care, outstanding research productivity and the delivery of state of the art educational programmes.
