General Surgery

Introduction

The Department of General Surgery is one of the Institute's major departments, with the goal of providing all medical and surgical care related to surgical conditions of patients attending the department via outpatient department and emergency/accidental problems. Minimal Invasive, Breast, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Vascular, General Surgery, and Emergency Surgery are all part of the Surgery department. It has specialised clinics for breast cancer, anorectal cancer, and hepatobiliary disease. Aside from that, the department has been performing minimally invasive surgery for both basic and advanced laparoscopic training. The department has held regular academic events with the goal of imparting knowledge in specific areas of the surgical arsenal such as breast, minimally invasive, bariatric, and thoracic surgery. CME, conferences, and wet lab workshops are examples of these activities. The department offers general surgery services for all types of surgeries related to benign and malignant abdominal pathology, thyroid diseases, breast cancer, and soft tissue tumours. The majority of the surgery is performed using minimally invasive techniques, which include both basic and advanced surgical procedures. The department performs a large number of hernia surgeries using the laparoscopic technique and have also begun research in the same field. Postgraduate students have joined the department, and the department has begun a number of research projects and postgraduate thesis work in collaboration with other departments. This year has been marked by the Covid pandemic, but we intend to develop bariatric surgery and robotic surgery in the near future, as the institute is in the process of purchasing a robot. We also intend to develop a structured laparoscopic training programme for surgeons interested in field work in other hospitals in the institute's surrounding area.
