General surgery encompasses treatment for abdominal pain and other consequences of diseases like jaundice, distention of abdomen and loss of weight. Surgery is the primary treatment of choice for most cancers, liver swellings, bile duct obstruction and swellings of pancreas. Surgery department has well trained, experienced consultants who are available day and night for both planned and emergency operations
Laparoscopic surgery is also known as “minimally invasive” surgery due to the extremely small incisions used to enter the body and perform surgery. It gets its name from the specialised camera, called a laparoscope, which is used to give surgeons a view of the affected area. Patients experience far less pain during and after laparoscopic surgery, recover far quicker and have minimal scarring to show for it.
Here at Deccan Hospital, we have an experienced and skilled team of general surgeons who routinely deal with most general surgical conditions.
