Breast surgery is a type of surgery that is performed on women’s breasts for the purpose of augmentation, reduction and reconstruction. Breast augmentation is done to improve the contour, size and appearance of the breasts. Breast reduction surgery is carried out to remove the excess skin, fat, and tissue in the breast. Breast reconstruction is performed to rebuild the shape and look of the breast after a mastectomy (the partial or total removal of one or both breasts) for breast cancer.
Cardiothoracic surgery involves the surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax – most often, heart and lungs. A few common cardiothoracic surgeries are angioplasty, stent placement, ablation, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), heart valve repair or replacement, ventricular assist devices, heart transplant, carotid surgery, Pneumonectomy, Wedge resection, and Lobectomy. Depending on the health status of the patient, these surgeries can be performed as a minimally invasive procedure or traditional open surgeries.
Colorectal surgery refers to various surgical procedures that are performed on the colon, anus, and rectum. These surgeries can be performed to treat conditions such as anal fissures, birth defects in the anus or colon, swelling and inflammation of veins in the rectum, anorectal fistulas, colon and rectal cancers, anal or rectal prolapse, diverticular disease, diverticulitis, anal cancer, imperforate anus and other birth defects, faecal incontinence, Crohn’s disease and other severe colic disorders.
Endocrine surgery involves the surgical treatment of diseases and disorders that affect the endocrine glands – predominantly thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, and adrenal glands. Some endocrine disorders treated with endocrine surgery are Diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, Grave’s disease, Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Parathyroid carcinoma, Adrenal cancer and Thyroid cancer. The most commonly performed endocrine surgeries are Adrenalectomy, Parathyroidectomy, Thyroidectomy, Thyroid lobectomy, and Total pancreatectomy.
Paediatric surgery is a sub-speciality that is concerned with the surgical treatment of diseases and disorders in foetuses, infants, children, and adolescents. With a multi-disciplinary approach, our expert paediatric surgeons offer both invasive and non-invasive surgical treatment services for young patients in various fields like oncology, gastroenterology, cardiology, emergency or trauma, nephrology, neurology, urology, hepatology, and orthopediology.
Vascular surgery refers to the surgical procedures involved in the treatment of vascular diseases, which are diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic system (excluding the intracranial and coronary arteries). These surgeries are performed to treat specific diseased arteries (such as atherosclerosis), improve or relieve angina or hypertension, remove aneurysms, improve claudication, to prevent strokes or heart attacks, and save legs that would otherwise have to be removed.
A laparoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery that aids diagnosis and therapeutic interventions with a few small incisions in the abdomen. It is performed using an instrument called laparoscope, a thin tube that has a tiny video camera and light at the front for allowing the surgeon to view inside the body. Most often, it is used to diagnose tumors and other growths, blockages, unexplained bleeding and infections and also to identify the source of pelvic or abdominal pain.
Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that is performed using robotic systems. This robot-assisted surgery allows the surgeons to perform a wide range of delicate and complex procedures by enhancing precision, flexibility and control during the operation. The major benefits of this surgery are less pain, minimal blood loss, smaller and less noticeable scars and quicker recovery. Most often, this surgery is performed in the fields of Gastroenterology, Gynaecology, Oncology and Urology.
