THEATRE AND SURGERY

The Department of Surgery at Kibuli Muslim Hospital is a highly regarded one in the country and among its aims is to provide holistic care to our patients. We understand that surgery is not just about scalpels and retractors and as such take it as a must to comprehensively manage our patients by incorporating the social and physiological care with a human touch atop the clinical and surgical treatment they receive.

The theatre floor on the Somani Complex has five fully equipped operating rooms with one reserved for the very septic cases. We as such handle cases that encompass paediatric, gynaecological, general, orthopaedic, ophthalmologic, urology, ENT fields among others. The ‘scopies’ too have their own fair share of the floor with the most commonly done being endoscopies, gastroscopies, sigmoidoscopies and colonoscopies.

A minor theatre, a walk-in-walk-out theatre, is present on the Out Patient Building to take care of cases which only require local anaesthesia. It also is the primary contact station for surgical emergencies and they are handled there promptly as they come in.
