General surgery

General surgery is a surgical specialty that covers surgical treatment on all the major parts of the body, which include the stomach, small intestine, esophagus, large intestine, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, thyroid glands, and bile ducts. A general surgeon is a medical specialist who performs entire surgical procedures for any disorder, from evaluation to postoperative management.


Laparoscopy is a safe surgical diagnostic procedure that helps to visualise the inner organs of the body. The device is a long, thin tube-like structure that has a high-resolution video camera and light at the end. The tool is inserted into the body through small incisions to monitor and identify the disorder. It is usually performed to obtain real-time images of the abdomen or pelvic area.
The surgery team offers a full spectrum of surgical treatments that focus on the gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, liver, appendix, hernia, digestive system, and other major parts of the body. Our general surgeons provide holistic care, complete satisfaction, and patient safety by employing all the modern diagnostic tools and surgical equipment. The laparoscopic technique has various benefits, including minimal scars, smaller incisions, and less blood loss. Every day, our team of board-certified surgeons uses laparoscopic and minimally invasive techniques to conduct a wide range of surgical procedures.

Conditions Treated Under General Surgery and Laparoscopy

There are a variety of conditions that can be treated with general surgery and laparoscopy. The type of treatment will be determined by the condition being addressed. Some of the more common ones include:

Common surgeries performed at our hospital

Fissure surgery: Fissure surgery, also known as sphincterotomy, is performed to treat chronic anal fissures. The condition leads to severe pain and bleeding during defecation. It is caused by the anal canal being overstretched because of hard bowel movements. Surgery is usually performed to cut a portion of the anal sphincter muscle to minimise spasms and pain and improve healing.
Gastric bypass: It is a type of weight loss surgery that creates a small sac from the abdomen by connecting the created sac directly to the small intestine. The swallowed food will pass into the small sac of the stomach and then into the small intestine. The surgery helps to reduce excess weight and lower the risk of weight-related health issues, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and infertility.
Appendectomy: It is a common surgical technique used to remove the affected appendix from the abdomen. It causes severe stomach pain, abdominal swelling, diarrhea, bleeding, loss of appetite, and rigid abdominal muscles. Both open and laparoscopic surgical treatments are performed to remove the appendix.
Cholecystectomy: It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where small incisions are made to remove the gallbladder. The condition causes pain in the abdomen, jaundice, nausea, and a high fever. Removing the gallbladder may control the pain and cure the infections caused by gallstones.
Oesophagectomy: It is a complex surgical treatment to remove the affected parts of the oesophagus through small incisions in the chest, neck, and abdomen. The disorder may increase the risks of infection, bleeding, cough, respiratory complications, swallowing difficulties, and even death.
Thyroidectomy: It is an operation to remove the affected goiters, nodules, and cancer cells from the thyroid gland. It usually causes fatigue, obesity, injury to the parathyroid glands, infections, and muscle weakness.
Colorectal surgery: It is performed to treat various conditions like bowel obstruction, cancer, injuries, and hemorrhoids. The surgery removes affected parts of the colon and lymph nodes to relieve the pain.

Laparoscopic surgeries performed at our hospital

Hernia repair, also known as herniorrhaphy, is a surgical procedure where an incision is made to push the hernia (displaced tissue) back into the abdomen. Open, laparoscopic, and robotic hernia repairs are three common surgical options. The hernia bulge often causes severe pain, bloating, vomiting, and discomfort in the abdomen.
  • Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair: An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue bulges from the intestine through the lower abdominal muscles or groyne area. It causes pain, discomfort in the groyne area, a burning sensation, and nausea. Minimally invasive surgery is needed to place the tissue back into the abdomen.
  • Laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair: An umbilical hernia is a harmless condition that occurs in the belly button (umbilicus). An abnormal bulge is pushing through a weak part of the abdominal wall near the navel. Laparoscopic surgery often involves making small incisions at the belly button to push the tissue back into the abdomen.
Gallbladder surgery: This is a common surgical method, usually performed using a less invasive laparoscopic surgical approach. Small incisions are made to view the internal organs and remove the gallbladder without causing severe pain and blood loss.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Bangalore

A less invasive procedure to remove the gallbladder is laparoscopic cholecystectomy. When gallstones cause inflammation, discomfort, or infection, this procedure is a lifesaver. Most patients can go home the same day after surgery and go right back to their daily routines with only a few tiny incisions.

1. How is an appendix surgery performed?
There are two types of appendix surgeries available: open and laparoscopic. Depending upon the severity of the condition, the doctor will decide on the type of surgery. During open surgery, a surgeon creates an incision in the abdomen to clean the rupture. Later, the appendix is removed and the wound is closed with stitches. During laparoscopic surgery, small incisions are made in the abdomen in which the laparoscopic instrument is inserted to access the appendix. This surgery is completely safe and has a shorter recovery period.
2. Is appendix surgery painful?
The patient is given anaesthesia when the surgeons operate on the appendix, so they do not experience any sort of pain during the surgery. However, the surgical part may become tender as it heals.
3. How long does it take to recover from appendix surgery?
After appendix surgery, recovery time differs depending on the severity of the condition. With laparoscopic surgery, a patient is usually able to return to their routine in one to three weeks. An open surgery may take two to three weeks for complete recovery. In the case of a ruptured appendix, it may take more than six weeks.
4. Is cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) a high risk surgery?
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has low risk factors and decreased hospitalisation. Although it has some rare side effects, such as bleeding and other minor postoperative complications. Overall, the mortality rate of patients undergoing cholecystectomy is significantly lower compared to other major surgeries. It is an acceptable surgical treatment for patients with life-threatening gallbladder conditions.
5. What are the restrictions after cholecystectomy?
After the surgery, the patient should strictly follow the proper diet plan. The patient should avoid high-fat foods. Increasing fibre content in the diet can help normalise bowel movements. Consuming caffeine and dairy products may worsen defecation. One to two weeks of sleep and complete rest is necessary to heal the surgical area.
6. Can I refuse gallbladder surgery?
Mostly, doctors recommend surgery if the patient has severe gallstone attacks. It is okay if the gallstone does not cause frequent attacks and severe pain. If the serious condition is left untreated, it leads to higher complications and infections.
7. Is haemorrhoid surgery risky?
Hemorrhoid surgery is an invasive and sometimes painful surgical option, but it can be effective and even completely cure the condition. Some rare postoperative complications include urinary retention, fever, nausea, and slow healing. The treatment is completely safe and removes haemorrhoids permanently.
8. How long does haemorrhoid surgery take to heal?
Recovery from hemorrhoid surgery is a gradual process. The recovery period may vary depending on the condition and age. Most people are able to return to their routine around 7 to 10 days after the surgery. Complete recovery may take 2 to 4 weeks.
9. How do you pass stool after hemorrhoid surgery?
Using a small step stool when you sit on the toilet may support your feet. It also helps your hips and pelvis in a squatting position. This makes bowel movements easier and prevents straining constipation after surgery.
10. How successful is laser treatment for haemorrhoids?
Laser haemorrhoids surgery results in better patient outcomes than other conventional surgeries.The affected tissue and blood vessels can be effectively burnt using a laser beam with minimal pain and discomfort. It is a non-invasive procedure and suited for people who are afraid of surgery.
