Services Offered at Sanjeevini Hospital

Appendectomy

This surgical procedure involves in the removal of the appendix, a small tube that branches off the large intestine, to treat acute appendicitis. Appendicitis is the acute inflammation of this tube due to infection.

Breast Biopsy

This is a diagnostic test that involves removal of tissue or cells for examination under a microscope. This procedure is also used to remove abnormal breast tissue. A biopsy may be performed using a hollow needle to extract tissue or a lump may be partially or completely removed for examination and/or treatment.

Carotid Endarterectomy

This is a surgical procedure that removes blockage from carotid arteries, the arteries located in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Left untreated, a blocked carotid artery can lead to a stroke.

Cholecystectomy

This is surgical procedure that removes the gallbladder. A gallbladder may need to be removed if the organ is prone to troublesome gallstones, if it is infected, or becomes cancerous.

Debridement of wound, burn, or infection involves the surgical removal of foreign material and/or dead, damaged, or infected tissue from a wound or burn. By removing the diseased or dead tissue, healthy tissue is exposed to allow for more effective healing.

Free skin graft involves detaching the healthy skin from one part of the body to repair areas of lost or damaged skin in another part of the body. Skin grafts are often performed as a result of burns, injury, or surgical removal of diseased skin. They are most often performed when the area is too large to be repaired by stitching or natural healing.

Hemorrhoidectomy

This is a surgical procedure that removes hemorrhoids, distended veins in the lower rectum or anus.

Hysterectomy

This surgical procedure removes uterus. This may be performed either through an abdominal incision or vaginally.

Hysteroscopy

This is a surgical procedure that is used in diagnosing and treating many uterine disorders. The hysteroscope (a viewing instrument inserted through the vagina for a visual examination of the canal of the cervix and the interior of the uterus) can transmit an image of the uterine canal and cavity to a television screen.

Mastectomy

Mastectomy is the removal of all or part of the breast. Mastectomies are usually performed to treat breast cancer. There are several types of mastectomies, including the following:

  • Partial (segmental) mastectomy involves the removal of the breast cancer and a larger portion of the normal breast tissue around the breast cancer.
  • Total (or simple) mastectomy, in which the surgeon removes the entire breast, including the nipple, the areola (the colored, circular area around the nipple), and most of the overlying skin, and may also remove some of the lymph nodes under the arm, also called the axillary lymph glands.
  • Modified radical mastectomy surgery involves removing the entire breast (including the nipple, the areola, and the overlying skin), some of the lymph nodes under the arm, and the lining over the chest muscles. In some cases, part of the chest wall muscle is also removed.
  • Radical mastectomy involves removal of the entire breast (including the nipple, the areola, and the overlying skin), the lymph nodes under the arm, and the chest muscles.

Partial Colectomy

This procedure involves in the removal of a part of the large intestine (colon) which may be performed to treat cancer of the colon or long-term ulcerative colitis.

Prostatectomy

This surgical procedure involves the removal of all or part of the prostate gland, the sex gland in men that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra – the tube that carries urine away from the bladder. A prostatectomy may be performed for an enlarged prostate, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or if the prostate gland is cancerous.

Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of one or both tonsils. Tonsils are located at the back of the mouth and help fight infections.
