The General and Laparoscopic Surgery Department is equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure, supported by an experienced team of surgeons. The department specializes in performing all major surgeries involving abdomen, skin, breast, soft tissues, and hernia. The Department of General Surgery deals with a range of surgical ailments and emergencies. 


Well trained surgeons in our hospital deal with complex abdominal surgeries and trauma cases. Most abdominal surgeries are performed through laparoscopy (keyhole surgery). Backing this team of highly skilled surgeons are trained nurses and technicians, and state-of-the-art operation theatres equipped with the latest technology. Patients receive specialized 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.

All surgical emergencies are first assessed in the department of emergency and later operated if required. Well-equipped ICUs help in better post-operative management.

Services provided for different types of surgical cases:

  • Laparoscopic Technique: Laparoscopic surgery is performed through small incisions. A telescope with a video camera inserted through one incision provides visualization of the operation on a TV monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through additional small incisions, and the entire operation takes place completely within the patient’s body. When the telescope is used to operate on the abdomen, the procedure is called laparoscopy:
