General Surgery

Description: 

Surgery (from the Greek: χειρουργική cheirourgikē (composed of χείρ, "hand", and ἔργον, "work"), via Latin: chirurgiae, meaning "hand work") is an ancient medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate and/or treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas (for example, a perforated ear drum).

An act of performing surgery may be called a surgical procedure, operation, or simply surgery. In this context, the verb operate means to perform surgery. The adjective surgical means pertaining to surgery; e.g. surgical instruments or surgical nurse. The patient or subject on which the surgery is performed can be a person or an animal. A surgeon is a person who practices surgery and a surgeon's assistant is a person who practices surgical assistance. A surgical team is made up of surgeon, surgeon's assistant, anesthesia provider, circulating nurse and surgical technologist. Surgery usually spans minutes to hours, but it is typically not an ongoing or periodic type of treatment. The term surgery can also refer to the place where surgery is performed, or simply the office of a physician, dentist, or veterinarian.

Faculty Meet discusses Antibiotic Policy

Antimicrobial resistance has been identified by the World Health Organization as an increasingly relevant global health burden. Realising the magnitude of the problem, the central government as well as the Government of Kerala have decided to generate policies and guidelines on the optimal usage of antibiotics. In this context, the Department of General Surgery took up antibiotic policy as the topic of discussion for the monthly Faculty meeting which was held on the 1st of August. Dr Aravind R, Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases was invited to deliver a lecture on this subject.
