Common surgery cases are seen through out out-patient department clinics. Diagnostic endoscopy are done in our Daycare Surgery Centre and last but not least, our Elective and Emergency Operations are done in our General Operation Theatre here in Sungai Buloh.

We also have a good networking of experts from around the Klang Valley and perform complex surgeries hand-in-hand with national experts.

With the completion of the brand new Hospital Pengajar UiTM (HPU), soon we will embark on a new turf and a new journey to provide clinical excellence along the way as to prove that we can become the nation's leading service provider and training centre.

Teaching & Training in General Surgery

The Department of Surgery is also well committed in teaching and training our next generation of Doctors. We provide a wholistic approach towards learning on how to communicate, diagnose and plan for definitive treatment for surgical cases.

Students are allowed to join and follow our ward rounds as well as contribute in the day-to-day clinical discussion and maturing the thought process as well as achieving good clinical accuments in order to perform to the highest standards in clinical services, from the bedside for the nation.

We believe good clinical exposure in junior years is the best mode of teaching and training to the young future doctors. Therefore, students are expected to be part of the team in managing in-patients, following the patients care progress inclussive of oberving diagnostic endoscopies and even allowed to observe in definitive surgeries.
