The Department of General and Laparoscopic Surgery

Our general surgeons and laparoscopic surgeons perform a wide variety of routine and special surgical procedures. Listed below are few of the many surgeries they perform.

  • Open Surgical Procedures

    Open surgical procedures involve an appropriately sized incision made over the area of the body to be operated upon. In such surgeries, the patient may be required a post operative stay of minimal 5-7 days or more depending on the complexity of the procedure.

    • Emergency surgery including poly trauma
    • Inguinal, incisional and ventral hernia repairs
    • Surgeries of the liver and gallbladder
    • Oesophageal resections and reconstruction
    • Gastric (stomach) surgery
    • Surgeries on the small and large intestine
    • Splenectomy (spleen removal)
    • Anorectal conditions
    • Pancreatic surgery
    • Varicose veins of the lower limb
    • Wound care for diabetic foot and venous ulcers
    • Thyroid surgeries
    • Parathyroid surgeries
    • Breast surgeries
  • Laparoscopic Surgical Procedures

    These are procedures performed via a laparoscope. Laparoscopic surgical procedures are performed through small surgical incisions (5-7mm) and they dramatically reduce the post operative hospital stay of the patient. This surgery is also called as ‘key-hole’ or ‘band-aid’ surgery due to their small size of the external surgical wound.
