The Department of Surgery at Makassed Hospital strives to deliver the highest quality patient care, conduct innovative medical research, and provide the best training for our surgeons and physicians. The Department includes an expert team of sixty- three surgeons who are leaders in their specialties. It provides all types of surgeries including: general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic, urology, ophthalmology, cardiothoracic, cardiovascular, plastic, pediatric, dental and ENT surgeries.

MGH physicians conduct outpatient consultations and procedures as well as inpatient procedures and operations, with a pre-operative unit to improve surgical services. Half of the surgeries performed at Makassed hospital are one-day surgeries, with patients admitted and discharged on the same day. This strategy has had a very positive impact on patient satisfaction.

Affiliations with the American University of Beirut (AUB) and Beirut Arab University (BAU) provide the Department of Surgery with the opportunity to collaborate with world-class teaching in the fields of General Surgery (with AUB) and Orthopedic Surgery and Urology Surgery (with BAU).
