The Department of General Surgery at Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, was founded in 1946. There are four divisions, one center lab, and forty-eight doctors covering 184 beds. They treat 75,000 outpatients, 8,000 emergence patients, 58,000 inpatients, and perform 4,500 major surgical cases annually. There are 7 units, the unit of hepatobiliary disease, the laparoscopic unit, the unit of thyroid disease, the unit of breast disease, the unit of stomach disease, the unit of pancreatic disease, and the unit of colorectal disease.

The unit of hepatobiliary disease is a pioneer in the prevention and treatment of biliary stone diseases. They use combined Chinese-Western medicine and advanced medical technique to treat biliary stone diseases, such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for complex biliary stone and tumours. They also offer naso-biliary drainage ENBD tube for the diagnosis and treatment of malignant biliary diseases. For senior patients who are not good candidates for surgery, endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) to treat certain types of biliary diseases avoids surgical procedures. Biliary endoscope plus intracorporeal electrohydraulic lithotripsy for remained stones has a success rate of 95%. They also offer laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gall bladder disease.
