General Surgery

The General Surgery Department is equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure, supported by an experienced team of surgeons. The department takes care of various surgical emergencies like acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, intestinal obstruction, trauma, abscesses, carbuncles, gangrene and necrotizing fasciitis, patients with sepsis due to surgical conditions. Our department acts as a tertiary referral unit for these emergency cases.
