The acute care surgery team at KIMS provides care to critically ill patients in a collaborative fashion in combination of three areas: trauma surgery, surgical critical care and emergency general surgery.
Critical care surgery deals with the preoperative and postoperative care of surgical patients that have acutely life-threatening conditions caused by injury or illness. Trauma surgery involves treating critical physical injuries due to external force on an emergency basis. The most common injuries treated at by our specialists are falls and motor vehicle accidents. Emergency general surgery involves the evaluation, resuscitation, and operative care for patients experiencing an acute general surgical problem. Our emergency general surgery staff cares for patients who arrive in the emergency room with acute general surgery conditions such as appendicitis which is inflammation of the appendix, cholecystitis meaning sudden irritation of the gall bladder, bowel obstructions caused by a number of pathological processes including postoperative adhesions, malignancies, Crohn's disease and hernias hernias and intra-abdominal emergencies.
