All general surgical operations are done at Dana Shivam heart and Super speciality hospital, Jaipur.
Many surgeries like Hernia and Piles surgeries are done as ‘Day Care Surgeries’.
Advanced Laparoscopy and Endoscopy equipment makes minimally invasive surgeries possible. Four dedicated general surgery operationn theatres with state of the art post operative intensive care units.
Areas of the body treated by general surgery include the stomach, liver, intestines, appendix, breasts, thyroid gland, salivary glands, some arteries and veins, and the skin. The brain, heart, lungs, eyes, feet, kidneys, bladder, and reproductive organs, to name only a few, are areas that require specialized surgical repair.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), Keyhole surgery, or Pinhole surgery. This is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5-1.5cm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures. Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities, whereas keyhole surgery performed on the thoracic or chest cavity is called thoracoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery belong to the broader field of endoscopy.
There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus an open procedure. These include:
Reduced blood loss, which reduces the risk of needing a blood transfusion.
Smaller incision, which reduces pain and shortens recovery time.
Less pain, leading to less pain medication needed.
Although procedure times are usually slightly longer, hospital stay is less, and often with a same day discharge which leads to a faster return to everyday living.
Reduced exposure of internal organs to possible external contaminants thereby reduced risk of acquiring infections.
The process of minimally invasive surgery has been augmented by specialized tools for decades. However, in recent years, electronic tools have been developed to aid surgeons.
Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU)
This is an eleven bedded ICU. Patients who undergo high risk surgeries who require constant close monitoring and/or are haemodynamically unstable and/or requiring ventilatory support post operatively are taken care of in the Surgical Intensive care Unit. This unit admits all patients who have undergone major abdominal, gynecological, plastic, orthopedic, oncology and head and neck surgeries. We provide 1:1 nursing care and are well equipped with latest generation monitors, ventilators, BiPAP machines, warming blanket systems and bedside dialysis facilities.
