Patient Experiences

General Surgery & Surgical Gastroenterology

Overview

Ramkrishna CARE Hospitals launched the Institute of General Surgery and Surgical Gastroenterology to provide the highest level of healthcare in this specialty, while being affordable and accessible for the general population.

An expert team of surgeons with combined clinical experience of over fifty years offers the whole spectrum of treatment modalities — from the simplest procedures to the most complex advanced laparoscopic surgeries. The institute was one of the first few in the state to acquire laparoscopy instrumentation and offer “keyhole surgery” to its large patient base. Keeping pace with advances in the field of laparoscopic surgery we have added a high-definition endovision to our surgical armamentarium.

The continuing evolution of medical science in general and surgical specialties in particular is challenging and keeps the faculty on its toes to stay abreast with the best in the world. The faculty is active on the academic front, travelling all over the country as well as abroad to participate in conferences and surgical workshops, learning and mastering the recent trends in the world. Members of the faculty also speak on various topics related to surgery and surgical nutrition at national and international fora.

The Institute of General Surgery and Surgical Gastroenterology is a center of excellence, recognized by the patients and the medical fraternity.

Surgeries for Morbid Obesity

The epidemic of obesity has been increasing globally, with major public health and financial implications. Developed countries were initially more affected, but now developing countries are increasingly contributing to the epidemic.

Obesity is associated with increased risk of mortality due to problems related to the metabolic syndrome, as well as increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). The metabolic syndrome is associated with insulin resistance and type II Diabetes Mellitus, hyperlipidemia and systemic hypertension. Increased abdominal pressure is associated with obesity hypoventilation, gastroesophageal reflux disease, stress urinary incontinence, pseudotumorcerebri and venous insufficiency. Central obesity is responsible for sleep apnea and degenerative joint disease. In addition to this, cancers of the endometrium, colon, renal cell, breast and prostate are found to be more common in the obese.

Today more laparoscopic bariatric procedures are being performed than open procedures annually, worldwide. By reducing the size of the surgical incision and decreasing the operative trauma from abdominal wall retractors and mechanical retraction of the abdominal viscera, the surgical insult is less after laparoscopy, as compared to open surgery. Decreased post-operative pain, lower rate of wound related complications, reduced incidence of postoperative incisional hernia and faster recovery are the other advantages of the laparoscopic technique.
