Over the years, the Department of Surgery, based on prestigious tradition, has become internationally renowned for many of the surgical "first" it has achieved in Asia, among which are the live donor kidney transplantation in 1968; the separation of Siamese twins Chung-jen and Chung-yi, who were conjoined at the chest and abdomen in 1979; by 1995, as many as ten thousands of open heart procedures had been performed in the Department. The Department also holds a world-wide reputation for its great case number as well as the good outcome of surgical removal of liver cancer. In addition, the Department of Surgery is currently the leading transplantation center in Taiwan. A great number of kidney, heart, liver, pancreas and lung transplantations have been performed. The transplantation team of the Department even succeeded in performing a complicated cadaveric organ transplantation, in which, heart, lung, liver and kidney were retrieved at once from one brain-dead donor and then transplanted into six recipients respectively by six operation teams. The Department has contributed significantly to the advancement of surgical science. In 2001, 100 academic papers written by the staff of the Department of Surgery were included by the Social Science (SSCI) and Science Citation Index (SCI) databases, 115 papers in 2002, and 99 papers in 2003. Another 71 papers, though not listed in the SSCI and SCI databases, appeared in medical journals, textbooks, or were published for patents and technical transfer agreements. To sum up, the Department of Surgery during the last three years produced a total of 385 papers, average of 2.6 papers per faculty member each year.


The program for the future development of the Department is mapped out in short-term, mid-term and long-term. The short-term plan is to develop microsurgical and robotic operations, and to enhance the communication and cooperation with other departments. The objective is that, on the clinical level, the patients get the finest care and,on the research level, the quality of research gets enhanced with the establishment of experimental surgery division. In the mid-term plan, the Department will strive to establish a transplantation center specializing in the care of the transplant patients and the research of this area. The Department would also seek to cooperate with other research institutions, home and abroad, for an advanced research into our local diseases; establish specialized medical research centers aimed at high international standing. The long-term plan includes the efforts to obtain more members of staff to strike a balance between the Department of Surgery of the NTUH and that of its branch hospital in Hu-wei, Yun-lin County; to develop artificial devices for supporting patients with heart failure or other organ failure; to develop a comprehensive medical system for our future children hospital.
The National Taiwan University Hospital, when first founded in 1895, was made up of two departments: the Department of Surgery and the Department of Internal Medicinte since 1945
when Taiwan was restored with the Japanese colonial period ended, the Department of Surgery has been headed by a succession of distinguished professors, from Profs. Hsu Pang-Hsing, Fang Hsi-Yu, Cheng Tz-Sheng, Hsieh Kuei-Jen, Kao Tian-Cheng, Lin Tian-Yu, Hsu Shu-Chien, Hung Chi-Jen, Chen Kai-Mo, Chu Shu-Hsun and Chang King-Jen, to the present chairman, Prof.Lee Po-Huang. Under the leadership and direction of these chairmen, the Department of Surgery has blossomed out as the leading center of Surgery in Taiwan.

For the future, the Department of Surgery will continue to practice the philosophy, as ithas been,of "treating patients as family and persuing excellence,"and incorporate thephilosophy into medical service, medical teaching and medical research, the three main tasks of the Department. With a humanist mind, the ultimate goal of the Department is to seek the health and wellbeing of the mankind.

Pancreatic surgery
(1) The first successful heart-transplanted case with previous "electrical heart-assisted device" in Taiwan on Feb. 13, 2003
(2) The first case of VSD complicated with Eisenmenger syndrome successfully received extracoporai circulation, open heart surgery, lung transplantation and cardiac catheter
(3) The first case of simultaneous pancreto-kidney transplantation. This clinical research, surgery worldwide in July 2003. started from 1994, initially served 7 patients by bladder drainage. This method, however, resulted in chemical cystitis, which may further complicated with UTI and acidosis. The first case of pancreato-kidney transplantation using intestinal drainage was successful on Feb. 2, 2003.
(4) The first case of simultaneous heart-kidney transplantation was performed in Taiwan. This is a 13 year old-child; the youngest patient received this procedure on Sep.9,2003, with SLE complicated with heart failure.
(5) The first brain-death recepient donated organs, one heart and two kidneys, to the needed in Taiwan on Nov. 13, 2003.
(6) Setinal lymph node biopsy was introduced into Taiwan in breast surgery on Nov. 13, 2003.
(7) The first case of complicated TB tracheal stenosis being treated by staged dilatation and stenting in Nov. 2003.
(8) Over 200 cases of laparoscopic colectomy for colorectal surgery performed up to 2003.Laparoscopic procedures for benign or malignant colorectal diseases are less invasive, less pain, minor wound, resumed oral intake faster and resumed working faster.
(9) 42 cases of liver transplantation were performed in 2003. Living related liver transplantation outnumbered cadeveric liver transplantation.

The goal of teaching is to impart the basic theory and practice of surgery and its future development to students, thus providing our students with the background knowledge for future clinical and research work. The department changed the long-used one-way teaching to a reciprocal style of teaching by dividing the students into small groups. This reform in teaching is intended to help students solve the problems and cultivate a more active attitude of learning.
(1) Introduction to Surgery
Introduction to Surgery is required for the fouth-year students to learn the fundamental knowledge and concepts in the surgical field.
(2) Clerkship
Clerkship for the fifth-year students includes general surgery (hepatobiliary, alimentary, colorectal, endocrine and breast surgeries) cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgery, thoracic surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery and emergency medicine.
(3) AcademicActivites
Morbidity and mortality conferences as well as reports of specialized aspects of cases studies are held on a weekly basis. Lectures by special guests are regularly given. Each division holds its own morning meetings, discussions on cases of particular diseases, journals and books. The divisions are also cooperative with one another in joint discussion for a reciprocal benefit and thus an elevated quality of medical service.
