Organisation profile

The Department of Surgery in NCKUH provides high-quality, personalized patient care, leading-edge research and comprehensive educational programs. The Department of Surgery is at the forefront of advances in state-of-the-art endo- vascular, endoscopic and minimally invasive surgical approaches to thoracic, intracranial, gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders, with a growing emphasis on robotic-assisted procedures for gastro-intestinal surgery as well as strong emphasis on obesity surgery and breast surgery. We provide outstanding patient care across a wide spectrum of clinical specialties encompassing neurosurgery, plastic surgery, pediatric surgery, surgical oncology, trauma and critical care, and transplantation. Our research programs continue to break new ground in the areas of cancer treatment, minimally invasive surgery, trauma and critical care, organ transplantation and organ regeneration. The department maintains strong ties in research with other basic sciences and clinical departments, which benefits our students by providing exposure to many different types of problems and areas of expertise including diagnostic imaging, anatomy, microbiology, immunology, physiology, biomedical engineering, biomaterial, electronic engineering, pharmacology, oral surgery, internal medicine, gynecology, and otolaryngology departments. We also collaborate with the biostatistics department to conduct long-term outcome studies in patients to identify ways to improve the quality, safety and results of surgical care. In addition to advances in clinical care and research, a primary focus of our department remains educating the future generation of academic surgical leaders. Through the use of simulation and cutting edge technology, the outlook of learning is revolutionized, which allows our students, residents and fellows to practice and become proficient in the basic skills and the cognitive knowledge required to perform surgical procedures prior to entering the operating room. The research component is consonant with our vision for the training of surgeons in the 21st century. The departmental mission is to produce the surgeon/scientist- physicians as comfortable in the basic science lab as they are in performing a routine surgery.
