Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic (or aesthetic) surgery aims at improving the appearance of it
Aesthetic surgery is a central component of plastic surgery and includes facial and body aesthetic surgery. Plastic surgeons use cosmetic surgical principles in all reconstructive surgical procedures as well as isolated operations to improve overall appearance
Burn surgery generally takes place in two phases. Acute burn surgery is the treatment immediately after a burn. Reconstructive burn surgery takes place after the burn wounds have healed.
Microsurgery is generally concerned with the reconstruction of missing tissues by transferring a piece of tissue to the reconstruction site and reconnecting blood vessels. Popular subspecialty areas are breast reconstruction, head and neck reconstruction, hand surgery/replantation, and brachial plexus surgery.
We provide all imaging services which are generally required with the scope of clinical services offered by the hospital. The imaging services we provide in the hospital meets the statutory requirements. We ensure the appropriateness of the investigations and procedures for the clinical indication and ensure results are reported in a standardized manner. We provide a protocol for notification of critical patient imaging results.
CT Guided Biopsy
This is a procedure performed by a radiologist to obtain a small tissue sample through a needle. This is done to make a diagnosis and plan future management. CT scan is used to guide the needle into the lesion in the safest possible manner. This is a minimally invasive procedure and is an alternative to an open surgical biopsy. CT guidance generally results in fewer complications, a faster recovery time, and avoidance of general anaesthesia.
USG Guided Biopsy
An ultrasound-guided needle biopsy is a medical test used to learn more about a lesion or mass. The biopsy is done by using an ultrasound to find the lesion or mass. This is one type of “image-guided” biopsy, which combines the use of ultrasound with either a Fine Needle Aspiration or Core Needle Biopsy. This test is most often used for lymph node, breast, and liver biopsies. USG guided catheterization for draining liver and perirenal abscesses.
