Dramatic medical treatments have been developed over the past twenty years that can now salvage damaged limbs that once would have necessitated amputation. The outcomes of these procedures are getting better, with fewer risks, and are saving limbs that, not too long ago, would not have been salvageable. In the amputation prevention service, our multidisciplinary team approach is not only to prevent amputations but also to reconstruct those limbs which have already been amputated. They work towards preserving the function and quality of the limb and life of such patients. This specialized service is one of its kind in the North region that focuses on preserving limbs.
Breast Plastic Surgery is a special program run by the Department of Plastic Surgery.

Reconstructive surgery is mostly done in the same sitting after cancer removal. We provide comprehensive care as per your individual needs.
A cancer diagnosis is very difficult to accept. While the main goal of cancer care is to cure the disease by tumour removal, some treatments can leave patients with a loss of function and appearance. Cancer Reconstructive Surgery helps repair, reconstruct, and restore the defects caused by cancer or its treatment. Reconstructive surgery is done at the same sitting after the cancer removal. This is essential for regaining both function and aesthesis.

The face is a special & prized area of the body with many special features (including 4 of the human senses).

Lymphedema is a condition in which there is an increase in the size of the extremity (upper limbs, lower limbs) that is caused by partial or total obstruction of the lymphatic channels. In the beginning, this increase in size is due to lymph accumulation. With time, if left untreated, this accumulated lymph triggers an increase in the supporting tissues of the affected limbs. It not only causes limb size to increase on a more permanent basis but also reduces oxygen availability to the tissues. It interferes with wound healing and provides a good environment for an infection that happens frequently. Every such episode further increases the irreversible swelling.
