General Surgery


         Surgical unit dealing with general surgical procedures including Thyroid, Breast, Swellings, Abscesses, Hydrocele etc.

 General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on Abdominal Contents including Esophagus, Stomach, Small Intestine, Large Intestine, Liver, Pancreas, Gallbladder, Appendix and Bile Ducts, and often the Thyroid Gland (depending on local referral patterns).

Types of general surgery:
Hydrocele

A hydrocele is an accumulation of serous fluid in a body cavity. A hydrocele testis is the accumulation of fluids around a testicle. It is often caused by fluid secreted from a remnant piece of peritoneum wrapped around the testicle, called the tunica vaginalis. Provided there is no hernia present, hydrocoeles below the age of 1 year usually resolve spontaneously. Primary hydrocoeles may develop in adulthood, particularly in the elderly and in hot countries, by slow accumulation of serous fluid, presumably caused by impaired reabsorption, which appears to be the explanation for most primary hydroceles, although the reason remains obscure.

I & D

Incision and drainage and clinical lancing are minor surgical procedures to release pus or pressure built up under the skin, such as from an abscess, boil, or infected paranasal sinus. It is performed by treating the area with an antiseptic, such as iodine-based solution, and then making a small incision to puncture the skin using a sterile instrument such as a sharp needle, a pointed scalpel or a lancet. This allows the pus fluid to escape by draining out through the incision.

Hemorrhoidectomy laser surgery

A hemorrhoidectomy is surgery to remove internal or external hemorrhoids that are extensive or severe. Surgical hemorrhoidectomy is the most effective treatment for hemorrhoids, though it is associated with the greatest rate of complications.

Hemorrhoidectomy stapler surgery

Stapled hemorrhoidectomy (also known as PPH or stapled hemorrhoidpexy) is an effective alternative that results in far less pain. The procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery, and those who undergo the procedure should be back to their work and regular activities within a few days.

Fissure in ano

An anal fissure (fissure-in-ano) is a small, oval shaped tear in skin that lines the opening of the anus. Fissures typically cause severe pain and bleeding with bowel movements. Fissures are quite common in the general population, but are often confused with other causes of pain and bleeding, such as hemorrhoids.

Fistula vaaft

Anal fistula is a chronic abnormal communication between the epithelialised surface of the anal canal and usually the perianal skin.An anal fistula can be described as a narrow tunnel with its internal opening in the anal canal and its external opening in the skin near the anus.Anal fistulae commonly occur in people with a history of anal abscesses. They can form when anal abscesses do not heal properly.If the outlet of these glands becomes blocked, an abscess can form which can eventually extend to the skin surface. The tract formed by this process is a fistula.

Thyroid surgery

A thyroidectomy is an operation that involves the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland. General, Endocrine or Head and Neck Surgeons often perform a thyroidectomy when a patient has thyroid cancer or some other condition of the thyroid gland or goiter.

Breast surgery

A breast implant is a prosthesis used to change the size, shape, and contour of a person's breast. In reconstructive plastic surgery, breast implants can be placed to restore a natural looking breast mound for post–mastectomy breast reconstruction patients or to correct congenital defects and deformities of the chest wall. They are also used cosmetically to enhance or enlarge the appearance of the breast through breast augmentation surgery.
