Day-care surgery is no more fastest surgery in fittest patients. In fact, newer modalities like harmonic scalpel, laser, endoscopic staplers, ESWL, and Robot will bring more and more variety of surgeries into this category in future. Our endeavor is to make every surgical procedure customized into day- care surgery (if possible). Patient recovers from surgery and is fit to return home within a day (24 hrs.)

Our department provides a comprehensive spectrum of services,tailored towards accurate diagnosis and management of all surgical conditions in outpatient as well as inpatient setting,where suitable patients are not required to be admitted to the hospital following their operation and can be discharged on the same day.


Department of Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery also known as minimally invasive or keyhole surgery has significant advantages for patients as it produces smaller scars and faster recovery times. It is however technically demanding so that many hospitals in india presently perform advanced surgical procedures using this technique. Saraswathy Hospital has one of the best advanced laparoscopic expertise in the country. Our surgeons are fully trained in advanced laparoscopy .

Our department is also pioneer in Laparoscopic surgery, commonly known as ′Key hole surgery′. Hundreds of procedures have been carried out with excellent results. It is endowed with modern equipment like High Definition image 1 Camera, High definition Monitor and laparoscopic Harmonic Scalpel and Ligasure which makes surgery simple and safe. A highly equipped Minimally Invasive Surgery Department provides  state of the art care for all general, surgical, Gastro Enterological and Endocronological Surgery. Minimally invasive Thyroidectomy (Scarless Thyroidectomy), general surgical procedures like varicosevein, breastcancer surgery, breast conservative surgery etc are routinely done here. Stappler Haemorroidectomy; a painless surgery for piles is its speciality. Laparoscopic surgery includes all types of routine surgeries like Appendicectomy, Cholycystectomy, Adhesinolysis etc. Advance Laparoscopic surgery like Nissen’s fundoplication, Colo Rectal Resections, Total Laparoscopic Hystrectomy, Gastrectomy, Pancreatic Surgeries etc are done here.

Endoscopic Thyroidectomy






Thyroidectomies using the open method are effective, well-tolerated and safe but involve transverse incision on the neck measuring 7–10 cm in length. Thyroid disorders are more common in women and they find these scars uncomfortable and cosmetically unacceptable. Hence, minimal access approaches are playing an ever increasing role in neck surgery as they result in a reduction in size or elimination of the scar on the neck.These approaches to endocrine tumors are more appealing in view of the fact that the conventional approach seems out of proportion compared to the small size of the tumors.

We believe that our endoscopic technique using the anterior chest wall approach as described in this paper can be utilized to remove large nodules of the thyroid as well as performing total thyroidectomies. It combines the benefits of the minimal access approach, instrumentation, magnification and precision. The scars produced are hidden beneath the clothes of the patient offering a cosmetic advantage.

Hemorrhoids or Piles

Piles are hemorrhoids that become inflamed. Hemorrhoids are masses, clumps, cushions of tissue in the anal canal - they are full of blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers.

Hemorrhoid surgery (hemorrhoidectomy) is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins surrounding the anus. They occur inside or outside the skin of the rectum. As the surgical site is very sensitive area, hemorrhoid surgery causes a lot of pain. •  Incisions are made around the anus to cut the hemorrhoids out. Special staplers or sutures may be used during the surgery. Hemorrhoid surgery is an effective form of treatment for hemorrhoids. However, after the surgery, the patient should eat a high fiber diet and maintain good hygiene to avoid recurrence of hemorrhoids.

- Pain medications may be prescribed to relieve post operative pain.

- The patient can recover in two weeks after the surgery.
