General Surgery

With a name like “general surgeon” one does wonder: what does a general surgeon do? General surgeons use surgical procedures to remove disease, repair injuries, and promote health and healing. They also perform diagnostic tests and provide guidance on the need for surgery. These doctors might be called on to perform surgery on almost any part of the body since they have the knowledge and basic training in all nine areas of surgery which are :

  • The digestive tract
  • The abdomen and its contents
  • The skin and soft tissue, including the breasts
  • The head and neck
  • The blood vessels and heart
  • The endocrine system (hormones and glands)
  • Surgical treatment of cancer
  • Surgical management of traumatic injuries
  • Care of critically ill patients with surgical needs

Our Approach:-

At the first visit, the patient is counseled by our expert General and Laparoscopic Surgeon – Dr.Ashish Dhadas. Dr.Ashish Dhadas is a renowned, trusted name in the medical fraternity with more than 20 years of experience and has successfully treated thousands of patients with varied surgical problems. He evaluates the need for surgery and then draws out a plan of action after a thorough discussion with the patient and relatives. All aspects related to surgery, including various options, are explained in great detail which helps the patient and relatives to take the right decision.

Time for recovery :-

This depends on the type of surgery performed. Some like cyst removal, cervical lymph nodes are daycare procedures with patient being discharged the same day. Some surgeries need a hospital stay of 2 to 3 days. The recovery time is around 8 to 10 days depending on the surgery performed.
