General surgery department comprises of highly experienced senior surgeons and competent staff. Here we focus mainly on abdomen, breast, thyroid gland and hernias. Operations of the esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gall bladder, bile duct are done with key-hole technology. Laparoscopic surgical techniques are used whenever possible since the benefits are many including smaller incisions, less post-operative discomfort, quicker recovery, shorter hospital stay, faster return to full activity and minimal scars.
We believe that a good surgeon is a "craftsman" first and next a patient’s confidant who takes charge of the entire planning process, starting with diagnosis, surgery and ending with good post operative care.
