The department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery has made a beginning in collaboration with department of General Surgery from the time of inception of the hospital. It has been provided with a daily running O.P.D. exclusive operation theater (armed with competent anesthesiologist, state of the art, operating microscope, micro surgical instruments and well trained Plastic Surgery Staff, Intensive Care Unit looked after round the clock by well-trained nursing staff under the supervision of anesthesiologists) and inpatient wards (catering to all the strata of the society). Accident and Emergency Care Unit (Casualty) is handling all the Plastic & Reconstructive Emergencies backed by round the clock C.T. and M.R.I Scan facilities from the department of radiology. Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is willing to expand and want to explore in Skull Base Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery….
Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery runs daily outpatient services between 8.30am to 5.00pm and emergency services round the clock. It is backed by round the clock services of laboratory, radiology, accidents and emergencies and anesthesiologist. Because of early availability of investigation reports and the availability of PACS- picture archiving and communication system, definitive plan of treatment is often decided on the day of admission itself. Inter departmental references are done on the same day if necessary. Department of Physiotherapy and Re-Habilitation is taking care of outpatients and admitted patients.
