The Department of General Surgery was started in our hospital in the year 1970. After the starting of the Medical College in the year 2002, the department has been showing a phenomenal growth.
At the inception of Medical College since 2002 Dr. Nirmalan Raja K.C took charge as the HOD of General Surgery and this department was served by eminent professors like Dr. Reghu L, Dr. Satish G. Prabhu, Dr. Philip K.K, Dr. Gurudas N, Dr. B. Kanakambaran.
The newly set up Skills Lab is great asset to teach and train students, PGs and Junior surgeons. Our department is establishing into the various surgical sub specialties namely Breast, Endocrine, Upper GI, Colorectal, Diabetic foot and Wound management, giving quality professional care, patient and community education and service.
The Dept of General Surgery has been attending to emergency and regular patients mostly from the districts of Ernakulam, Idukki and Kottayam.
Each unit has 2 outpatient days per week and the consultation starts at 9.00am. All the patients present in the OPD are attended to. Advance booking and telephone booking are available. Special OPD days are run 6 days a week till 7.00pm to cater to the needs of the office going population.
Besides separate male and female general wards a variety of private wards are set apart with trained nursing personal to ensure quality care for surgical patients.
We have a 14 bedded surgical ICU with trained and dedicated nursing personnel for management of critically ill surgical patients. This surgical ICU is furnished with pulse oximeters, monitors, surgical ventilators and trained dedicated nursing personnel. Surgical ICU is manned by doctors round the clock.
Round the clock emergency service is provided in all surgical specialties. The emergency service is provided by the Emergency Surgical On-Call team which includes a Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Surgical trainee, Tutor and house surgeons.
Patients who need more than ward care but less than the intensive care in the surgical ICU are attended by the surgical nursing staff in â€˜Step down ICUâ€™. We have 12 beds for this arrangement.
