The Department of General & Laparoscopic Surgery at Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute offers a full spectrum of specialised services to patients of all age groups with various types of surgical problems. These include procedures in the area of General Surgery, Minimal Access Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, One-day Surgery and Gastrointestinal Surgery.


Laparoscopic Surgery also called Minimal Access Surgery is a process wherein the surgeons do keyhole-sized incision(s) and perform surgeries on internal organs, leaving a very small scar as against the conventional/open surgery wherein surgeons perform large incision(s). Laproscopic Surgeries minimise the suffering of patients post operation, and shorten the recovery period. These surgeries are top on the list of surgeries that are performed at the Hospital.
