Our department of General Surgery offers a wide range of treatments designed to accurately diagnose and treat all surgical diseases in both an outpatient and an inpatient environment. An increasing number of treatments are now carried out in our ambulatory surgery center, where qualified patients can be discharged the same day without needing to be hospitalized in the hospital following their operation (Day Care). The Department of General Surgery offers surgical procedures targeted at the liver, colon, gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, and other significant human body organs. Appendix, gallbladder, colonoscopies, thyroidectomies, hernia, and bariatric surgeries are a few of the popular procedures.
The Department also provides effective therapy to patients with disorders of the breast, hernia, soft tissues, skin, and skin-related damage. At lifeline Hospital, the department of general surgery offers cutting-edge surgical procedures to its patients. Laparoscopic and robotic surgery sometimes referred to as key-hole surgery or minimally invasive surgery, is another area of expertise for the department. The operation theatres are well equipped with most modern instruments like Harmonic scalpel, Ligasure, etc.
Additionally, our department is a leader in laparoscopic surgery, popularly referred to as “Keyhole surgery.” Thousands of surgeries have been completed successfully. With its high-quality image 1 camera, high-definition monitor, and laparoscopic Harmonic Scalpel and Ligasure, surgery is made simple and secure.

Through basic science and clinical research, we are dedicated to increasing the diagnosis and treatment of all types of surgical diseases. To improve outcomes for our patients, we are committed to keeping track of our work.
Department of Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopy enables a surgeon to access the belly and pelvis from the inside without needing to create significant skin incisions. During a laparoscopy, the surgeon utilizes a device known as a laparoscope to avoid making large incisions. This little tube transmits pictures of the interior of the abdomen or pelvis to a television monitor. It has a light source and a camera.This procedure is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery.
The advantages of keyhole surgery
Smaller incisions mean less pain and bleeding
Heal faster, leading to shortened recovery times
