In spite of the term ‘general’, surgeons practicing general surgery are highly skilled surgeons having in-depth knowledge and experience in common abdominal complaints including hernias, gallbladder surgeries, appendicitis and intestinal issues.

General surgery is not just confined to abdominal surgeries but has expanded to other areas as well. For example, some of the general surgeons specialize in treating cancer and burns as well.

What Our Patients Say About Us

We are Reliable & Trusted

  • To all of the staff at the Parvati Hospital. I felt I must write and thank you for the care and consideration shown to me over the last six months, when I have been undergoing various tests in your department. Times like this are always worrying and stressful, but your friendly welcoming attitude and professional and jargon-free communication make us comfortable.


  • I had met with an accident. When I had visited the Parvati Hospital, my father-in-law and I have been very impressed by the positive atmosphere, friendly and professional attitude of all of the staff. I do not normally like coming to hospital (for obvious reasons), however, the expert care and attention received in this clinic makes such a great difference.
