Surgery and Medical Specialties

Over the years, Tunisia has become a leading destination for medical tourism. Almost all medical and surgical specialties are treated. Under the Surgical subcategory, the most requested specialties have been grouped together to provide more information on different medical disciplines. It’s worth noting that Tunisia Destination Santé also offers its services for other specialties.



Cardiology focuses on the heart, arteries, and veins. Treatments can be medical or surgical. Cardiology is not just an emergency specialty for conditions like heart attacks, but it also treats conditions such as hypertension and aneurysms. You can discover the most requested interventions in cardiac exploration and intervention, such as coronary angiography, angioplasty, Aorto Coronary Bypass Grafting, Cardiac Valve Replacement, Implantable Automatic Defibrillator placement, and many other interventions and treatments.


Orthopedic surgery deals with the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Both diseases and injuries are treated by orthopedic surgery. In the past 30 years, orthopedics has greatly advanced to provide better comfort to elderly individuals, among others, with procedures like hip and knee prosthesis. New techniques also allow for orthopedic interventions using arthroscopy with small incisions for shoulder, hand, and foot surgeries.


Ophthalmology is the medical specialty that treats eye diseases and their annexes. Treatment can be medical or surgical. Over the years, Tunisia has become a preferred destination for foreign patients, especially from Algeria, Libya, and African countries, for ophthalmic interventions. The most requested operations include Lasik, cataract surgery, corneal transplantation, glaucoma treatment, as well as PRK, photocoagulation, vitrectomy, and SLT laser.

General surgery

General surgery or visceral surgery treats abdominal and lower abdominal conditions. It addresses the digestive, abdominal-pelvic, and endocrine organs. Surgical techniques have evolved significantly in recent years, particularly with laparoscopic surgery, which allows patients to recover quickly and significantly reduce their hospitalization duration.

Otolaryngology (ENT)

Otolaryngology, also known as Oto-rhino-laryngology, is a medical-surgical specialty that deals with the ears, nose, throat, and salivary glands. With the development of endoscopic investigations, this specialty has greatly advanced in recent years. Among the most requested interventions, we can mention tonsillectomy, thyroidectomy, and otology, which treats pathologies related to the auditory system.


Oncology is the medical specialty that treats cancers. It is also referred to as carcinology or cancerology. Under the Oncology subcategory, we will present different cancer screening options. Traditional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy are offered. Additionally, oncological surgery is presented in this category. Depending on the cases, the protocol can be medical, surgical, or a combination of both, with or without radiotherapy sessions.


Urology is a medical-surgical discipline that deals with the male and female urinary systems and the male genital system. Common symptoms encountered in urology include blood in the urine, difficulties urinating or holding urine, urinary tract infections, testicular pain, presence of kidney stones, etc. Urology also addresses erection and reproductive problems. Among the most requested interventions, we can mention testicular biopsy often done as part of an IVF cycle, ureteroscopy, circumcision in children and adults, and more.


Gastroenterology is the medical discipline that treats pathologies of the digestive tract, from the pharynx to the anus, as well as intra-abdominal digestive organs such as the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas. Digestive endoscopy, through procedures like gastroscopy and colonoscopy, allows for the exploration of the digestive system and the patient’s colon.


Neurology is a medical specialty that treats all pathologies of the nervous system, particularly the brain. Several neurological examinations are indicated to identify the correct diagnosis of the disease.

Anesthesia aims to eliminate pain in order to perform a surgical procedure under optimal conditions.

Anesthesia can be local or general.
