The Department of General Surgery performs a wide variety of functions. The most prominent function is minimal access surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery. The consultants in the department have been doing this for more than ten years. The procedures done through laparoscopy include Cholecystectomy, Repair of Inguinal and Ventral Hernias, Removal of Appendix, and Diagnostic Laparoscopies. Laparoscopic Hysterectomies are regularly being done.
Besides Minimal Access Surgery, a wide range of general surgical procedures is done. In the neck, surgery of thyroid gland is regularly done. Abdominal surgery for acute emergencies, intestinal obstructions and surgical jaundice are other commonly performed procedures.
The operation theater is state-of-the-art and is equipped with latest equipment for laparoscopy and anaesthesia to ensure patient safety. The care of the patient is enhanced by a very active Infection Control program which has been instrumental in bringing down the infection rate in elective surgery to a minimum.
A well equipped and a well staffed Surgical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is attached to the operating theatres. All seriously ill patients, and post operative cases of major surgeries are taken care of in the surgical ICU.
The department also attends to all surgical emergencies received in the casualty department.
