Overview

Surgery is sometimes needed and could also be the last option in treating medical conditions involving the breast, endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, breast, colon, liver, pancreas, rectum, and endocrine system. General surgery is often an initial method to treat a health condition. It is a quick, small procedure that is different from other surgeries. 

The general surgeons coordinate with other specialists involved in patient care to timely diagnose and provide the right surgical intervention for severe conditions.

Everything You Need To Know About General Surgery

What Is General Surgery?

General surgery is a discipline that deals with the operative, preoperative, and postoperative management & care of patients with a wide range of diseases that may need elective or emergency surgery. Surgical management is done by a team of general surgeons and other healthcare staff who have the skills in complex decision making, diagnosis, treatment and management of all operative interventions.

What Is Included in General Surgery?

The field of general surgery as a specialty comprises various procedures and operations relevant to the areas listed below:

  • Abdomen and Contents of the abdominal cavity
  • Breast
  • Skin and Soft Tissue
  • Endocrine System

Besides this, general surgeons have expertise in:

  • Surgical Critical Care
  • Surgical Oncology
  • Trauma

Surgical care domains also include:

  • wound healing
  • infection and antibiotic usage
  • fluid and electrolyte management
  • transfusion and disorders of coagulation
  • shock and resuscitation
  • minimally invasive and endoscopic intervention (like endoscopy and colonoscopy) 
  • use of therapeutic and radiologic imaging
  • pain management.

Condition we Treat

General surgeons are responsible for treating various conditions and disorders in people of all ages. Here are some common surgical conditions:

Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain can occur due to inflammatory conditions, infections, blockages, tumors, or disorders of reproductive organs. Sometimes surgery is necessary to resolve the cause of the pain, such as an ectopic pregnancy.

Gallstones and Gallbladder Inflammation 

The gallbladder is a small organ located under the liver which helps in the digestive process by producing and releasing a substance called bile into the small intestine. Bile helps in the digestion of food. At times the gallbladder can become inflamed—a condition known as cholecystitis. Pebble-like masses known as gallstones are made of bile salts that cause cholecystitis. 

If left untreated, this condition can lead to infection. Surgery is performed to remove gallstones. This type of surgery is known as cholecystectomy.

Appendicitis is one of the common gastric problems treated by general surgeons. Appendicitis is caused by inflammation of the appendix, an organ located at the end of the intestine. Surgery to remove it is known as appendectomy. 

Other common gastrointestinal (GI) diseases addressed by General Surgeons include gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), liver cirrhosis, pancreatitis, ulcers, gastritis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 

Hernia

Hernias can occur when the internal organs bulge through the weak areas of muscle and tissue that cover the organs inside the abdominal cavity. Surgery is done to put the protruding tissue back in place and close the area with stitches or patches.

Thyroid Disorders

The thyroid gland which is located in the neck region is responsible for producing and secreting hormones that control metabolism. Problems with the thyroid gland need surgery known as a thyroidectomy. This is done to take out the entire thyroid gland or a part of it.

Varicose Veins

Veins in the legs that appear raised or twisted are known as varicose veins. They may cause swelling, pain, and leg sores and may also increase the risk of blood clots. A vein-stripping surgery is performed to remove severely swollen and painful veins.

General Surgical Procedures We Perform

Trauma Surgery

General surgeons often perform emergency surgeries. These include a variety of procedures to stabilize patients by maintaining their airway, breathing and circulation. 

Besides that, other procedures done in an emergency are:

To stop bleeding (Hemorrhage)

Treatment of organ perforations and bowel obstructions

Cholecystectomy- to remove the gallbladder

Appendectomy- done during rupture of the appendix 

Laparoscopic Surgery and Robotic Surgery

This is a new speciality that involves minimal access utilizing small instruments and cameras. This type of surgery can remove gallbladders, hernia, colons, and appendix.

Colorectal Surgery

This surgery treats major and minor rectal and colon diseases like inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease), colon and rectal cancer, haemorrhoids and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Endocrine Surgery

General surgeons can remove part or all of the thyroid and parathyroid glands and the adrenal glands located just below the kidneys if any problems arise in these organs.

Dermatological Surgery

General surgeons perform skin-related surgeries like removing moles or treating major burns. They can also remove tumours growing below the skin, like tumours that arise in muscles, fatty tumours or other soft tissues. 

General surgeons treat more complex skin infections like necrotizing fasciitis and utilize skin grafts to cover skin defects resulting from trauma, burns, or infections.

Transplant surgery

Responsible for all aspects of preoperative, operative, and postoperative care of abdominal organ transplant patients. Transplanted organs include the liver, kidney, pancreas, and, more rarely, small bowel.

After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
