About the Department
The department of Surgery was established in 1964. The Founding Chairman of the Department was Late Prof. S. Ammar Hasan. In 1971, MCI gave permission to start the course of M.S. in General Surgery and the first batch of PG students was examined in 1973. In 1981, the allied specialities (ENT, Anaesthesiology, Orthopedics) were separated from the Department. In 2012, three Super specialty departments- Neurosurgery, Pediatric Surgery, Cardio-thoracic Surgery- were created from the department to start MCh courses.
The present Faculty strength is 15 consultants, 3 Senior Resident and 41 Residents. Major thrust of the Department is on advancement of surgical research, education and innovation, especially minimal access surgery and the development of special clinics in diabetic foot, infertility, thyroid, breast and upper/ lower G.I. Surgery.
The emphasis is on imparting extensive theoretical and practical training to the Junior Residents not only through the Teachers of the Department but also by inviting eminent surgeons and clinicians to deliver useful lectures for their benefit.
