Advances in the field of medicine have resulted in new and less painful surgical procedures. Scars post surgery are now a thing of the past.

At SHRC, surgery includes a full suite of specific sub specialities, led by experienced and capable surgeons who will decide the best procedures for our patients based on their condition.

We have in-depth experience in the field of Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) or key hole surgery. MAS, as the name indicates, involves minimum incision or cutting open of the body. This is achieved through small openings or cuts made on the skin. In some cases, natural openings can also be used to gain entry into the body. MAS procedures are carried out with the help of miniature video cameras, fiber optic light sources and specially designed instruments.

MAS procedures performed by our team of surgeons include:

  • Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
    Removal of gall bladder

  • Laparoscopic Appendectomy
    Removal of appendix

  • Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
    Repair of protrusion of tissue through weakened abdominal wall

  • Laparoscopic Jejunostomy
    Creation of artificial opening into the small intestine for tube feeding

  • Laparoscopic Fundoplication
    Wrapping of the upper part of the stomach around the lower end of the esophagus for treatment of reflux disease or hiatus hernia

  • Laparoscopic Colectomy
    Removal of some part of the large intestine

  • Laparoscopic repair of rectal prolapse
    Correction of rectal wall protruding through the anal opening

Some of the benefits of MAS to patients are:

- Reduced haemorrhaging or loss of blood, which minimzes the possibility of blood transfusion
- Smaller incisions, which means less pain and a shorter recovery time
- Shorter hospital stays which translate to a faster return to one’s normal routine

General surgical procedures performed at SHRC include:
  • Treatment of cysts

  • Surgery for gastrointestinal cancers

  • Removal of nonthreatening (benign) masses such as lipoma

  • Comprehensive endoscopy investigations and procedures from upper GI to biopsy

  • Hemorrhoidectomy
    Surgery for piles

  • Thyroidectomy & Parathyroidectomy
    Surgical treatment of disorders of Thyroid and Parathyroid

  • Pilonidal sinus / cyst excision
    Removal of cyst that develops along the tailbone


SHRC has the distinction of being a Centre of Excellence for treatment of hernia.

Firstly, hernia is a protusion of some content of the abdominal cavity through a defect in the abdominal wall. It presents as a bulge and often times causes extreme pain and discomfort. A characteristic feature of hernia is that the bulge goes down spontaneously or with a change in position.
At SHRC we specialize in hernia repairs through laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery falls under the gamut of MAS or Minimal Access Surgery (refer above for more details)
Under Laprascopic hernia repair, the tissue protruding through the abdominal wall is repaired.

At SHRC, we offer a free hernia consultation every week.
(Consultations are by appointment only between 9 am to 10 am every Thursday)

For more information on consultations for hernia or on SHRC’s expertise in treatment of hernia, get in touch with us and meet with one of our team of specialists.

In case you have any questions on Hernia and its treatments, then our detailed section “FAQs onHernia” should help.
