The novel SARS-CoV-21 pandemic arose in China in the late 20192 and soon after spread in the rest of the world. The management of SARS-CoV-2 is a serious challenge for all the healthcare professionals. The management of this disease has caused an epochal change in all of the hospitals. The surgical departments too were not excluded from management of COVID-19 patients, because of the disease itself, or as complication of surgical procedure. The surgeons too had to quickly adapt their skills, in order to recognize and treat this life-threatening problem. In the mean time, the surgeons had to ensure continuity of the oncall availability for the emergency procedures, meanwhile the regular scheduled surgical activities were suspended. We present here our experience in a neighborhood hospital located in Milan, Italy


KEY WORDS: COVID-19; SARS-CoV-2; Emergency surgery; Hospital
