• General Surgery

The General Surgery Department is equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure, supported by an experienced team of surgeons. The department takes care of various surgical emergencies like acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, intestinal obstruction, trauma, abscesses, carbuncles, gangrene and necrotizing fasciitis, patients with sepsis due to surgical conditions. Our department acts as a tertiary referral unit for these emergency cases.

Most abdominal surgeries are performed through Laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgery is also known as key-hole surgery or minimally invasive surgery. It is widely used in gynaecology, gastroenterology and urology. Patients receive specialised assessment, latest treatments along with clinical post-operative care, medications and a regular follow-up. The advantages of this technique over traditional open surgery include a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time; less pain and bleeding after the operation; and reduced scarring. Backing this team of highly skilled surgeons are trained nurses and technicians and state-of-the-art operation theatres equipped with the latest technology.

The center for General Surgery also specialises in Elective surgery which is planned in advance, rather than one that’s done in an emergency situation.
