The Department of General Surgery/Oncology, Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine affiliated to Capital Medical University now has 31 inpatient beds and four specialties: gastrointestinal surgery, hepatobiliary pancreatic and splenic surgery, hernia and abdominal surgery and thyroid surgery. For years, the department has been committed to the combination of clinical practice and scientific research. After decades of development, the department has formed its own unique advantages of integrating traditional Chinese and western medicine in terms of talent reserve and academic characteristics, which has great influence at home and abroad. The Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine established the Department of General Surgery and introduced Professor Lu Yiping, a well-known surgical expert, into the hospital on January 1, 2015. Since then, Lu Yiping has been working as the Director of General Surgery and Director of Oncology Surgery at the hospital, thus writing a new chapter for the development of the Department of Surgery in Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The Department of Surgery of Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine is a "National-level Surgical Diagnosis and Treatment Center for Northern Regions", Chairman and Member Unit of Beijing Professional Committee of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine Oncology Surgery, Vice-chairman Unit of Surgical Technique Research Association of Beijing Doctors Association, Vice-chairman Unit of National Stoma and Wound Alliance, Standing Committee Member Unit of General Surgery Committee of Chinese Association of Integrative Medicine, Standing Committee Member of Colorectal Committee of Beijing Anti-Cancer Association, Standing Committee Member Unit of Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Diseases Committee of Beijing Anti-Cancer Association. It also set a Surgery Teaching & Research Division of Western Medicine, responsible for the teaching and training of undergraduates and postgraduates of Capital Medical University and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, as well as the training of resident doctors in Beijing. In addition, it conducts various training seminars on minimally invasive surgical techniques across the country, and trains a large number of interns and refresher doctors every year.
The department has many advanced equipment, such as advanced 3D laparoscopic system, electronic choledochoscopy, electronic gastroscopy, radiofrequency tumor ablation system, hyperthermic peritoneal perfusion system, electrohydraulic lithotripsy, ultracision harmonic scalpel, LigaSure vessel sealing system. The department receives and treats more than 1,000 patients a year, with the annual operation reaching nearly 1,000 cases. The proportion of large and medium-sized operations is more than 85%, the proportion of hospitalized patients in the external caruncle is more than 70%, and the annual out-patient volume is more than 30,000. The department has a strong reseach team, which consist of 5 experts with senior technical title. Among them, there are 2 professors (chief physician) and 3 associate professors (deputy chief physician). Under the leadership of Professor Lu Yiping, a famous expert in tumor surgery, hernia and abdominal surgery and minimally invasive surgery, the department has made rapid progress in scientific research, teaching, clinical practice and other aspects.
Introduction to specialty:
Gastrointestinal surgery: master laparoscopic radical gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer, laparoscopic radical gastrectomy for colorectal cancer, thoracoabdominal combined incision esophagogastric and cardiac junction radical gastrectomy, preserving the splenic hilum of gastric cancer D2 + radical gastrectomy. Tricky and serious problems, such as abdominal giant tumor resection, retroperitoneal tumor resection, and complex intestinal fistula treatment of major difficult diseases, can be performed in an accurate, effective and standardized way. The new techniques include laparoscopic radical gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer, radical gastrectomy for esophageal and cardiac junction cancer through thoracoabdominal incision, laparoscopic anus-preserving surgery for ultra-low rectal cancer, laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric stromal tumor, spleen-preserving splenic hilar lymphadenectomy, and transformation of advanced gastrointestinal tumors. Laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer, combined with minimally invasive treatment of liver metastasis of colorectal cancer has rich experience, especially for low rectal cancer. Laparoscopic radical operation for ultra-low rectal cancer has made many patients with low rectal cancer obtain ideal quality of life.
Hepatobiliary, pancreatic and splenic surgery: Every year, a large number of difficult operations such as resection of giant hepatocellular carcinoma, complex biliary tract surgery, retroperitoneal tumor resection, complex pancreaticoduodenectomy, portal hypertension splenectomy are performed in our department, with abundant experience accumulated. (1) In benign diseases, aside from laparoscopic cholecystectomy, biliary exploration, fenestration of hepatic cyst and laparoscopic exploration, Director Lu Yiping led the staff to carry out the clinical application and research of laparoscopic combined with choledochoscopy in minimally invasive surgical treatment of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones and primary suture of bile duct under anterograde nasal bile duct drainage,the invention of anterograde nasal bile duct obtained a national patent, and the theory of primary suture of bile duct under anterograde nasal bile duct drainage was first proposed in China to solve the difficulty of long-term wearing of T tube after biliary tract surgery. In addition, satisfactory results have been achieved in the treatment of complex intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones by traditional Chinese medicine. (2) In the treatment of malignant tumor, cholangiopancreatic tumor resection, laparoscopic cholangiopancreatic tumor resection and laparoscopic large-scale hepatectomy (left and right hemihepatectomy) can be performed. Patients with unresectable malignant tumors will be admitted to the tumor comprehensive treatment center of our hospital, which is an integrated treatment system based on interventional, oncological, digestive and radiotherapy departments, which provides multi-level and multi-step comprehensive treatment for tumor patients, significantly prolongs the survival time of patients and improves the quality of life of patients.
Thyroid surgery: perform open and endoscopic thyroidectomy, including large thyroidectomy, radical thyroidectomy, retrosternal thyroidectomy, parathyroidectomy, hyperparathyroidism surgery and other complex operations. For cases of tracheomalacia caused by long-term compression of trachea by huge goiter, tracheal intubation is used to prevent postoperative tracheal collapse, thus avoiding tracheotomy and achieving good results. It not only reduces the operative complications, but also cuts the medical cost and admission time. Endoscopic thyroidectomy which leaves no incision or scar on the neck is an ideal choice for people who care about their facial appearance.
Hernia and abdominal surgery diagnosis and treatment center: the center has set a special clinic and a diagnosis and treatment group for stubborn hernia, enabling patients not only to seek treatment in a timely manner, but also provide patients with accurate and detailed personalized treatment plan. Professor Lu Yiping is a well-known Chinese surgeon, deputy editor-in-chief of the Chinese Journal of Hernia and Abdominal Wall Surgery and a Chinese member of the International Endoscopic Hernia Society. He took the lead in carrying out the research program "minimally invasive surgical treatment of external abdominal hernia" in China, lectured and demonstrated operations in Beijing and 29 provinces, cities and autonomous regions. He has dealt with thousand cases of complicated and stubborn hernia and abdominal wall disease. Under the leadership of Professor Lu, various hernia operations have been carried out in our center, including: (1) The inguinal hernia is operated through the inguinal hernia area under local anesthesia or through the small abdominal incision, and the total extraperitoneal (TEP) or transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) under laparoscope. The operation is characterized by small trauma, concealed scar, and the patient can walk on the day after operation, and no need for dressing change. In addition, this operation also ensures the long-term effectiveness of inguinal hernia surgery, decreases the postoperative recurrence rate, and reduces the discomfort of patch implantation. (2) Incisional hernia, stoma hernia and other tricky hernias are treated by "hybridization technique". Combined with the advantages of laparotomy and laparoscopy, more ideal treatments are provided for these stubborn hernias, which not only reduces the surgical trauma and risk effectively, but also improves the clinical efficacy significantly. (3) Laparoscopic treatment of esophageal hiatus hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The operation has definite clinical effect on this kind of refractory gastrointestinal disease, with small operation trauma and fast recovery. Postoperative treatment with traditional Chinese medicine can play a very good role in preventing recurrence.
Constipation multi-disciplinary diagnosis and treatment center: since constipation is characterized by high incidence and extremely complex etiology, the participation of multi-disciplinary is needed to provide more ideal treatments for patients. By giving full play to the advantages of various disciplines and combining the advantages of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, our hospital has established a special diagnosis and treatment center, which is led by our Department and participated by Department of Acupuncture, Department of Spleen and Stomach Diseases, Department of Proctology, Department of Psychosomatic Medicine and Department of Radiology. The center has a special outpatient clinic, which can perform all kinds of examinations of constipation, such as colonic transit test , defecography , anorectal pressure measurement , intra-rectal B-ultrasound , electronic colonoscopy , magnetic resonance examination , spiral CT , etc. It has developed a variety of conservative treatment methods , such as integrative Chinese and western medicine, acupuncture and moxibustion, biofeedback, large intestine hydrotherapy, and spiritual treatment. For patients suffering stubborn constipations with syndrome of slow colon transit or outlet obstruction constipation, when their constipation was not relieved after conservative treatment, our department carried out the minimally invasive surgery of partial or subtotal colon resection under laparoscope and correction of rectal passage through anus under the leadership of professor Lu Yiping, a famous surgical expert. The concept of "standardized and individualized treatment" and the method of "minimally invasive surgical treatment" put forward by our center for the treatment of constipation are taking the lead in the country and have achieved very satisfactory clinical results.
