- About the Department

The Department of General Surgery was one of the first to be established at Jaslok Hospital in 1973 under the able guidance of Dr. Shantilal Mehta.

Since the late 80s, we have a reputation for performing efficacious endocrine surgery— especially of the thyroid, parathyroid and complex gastrointestinal (GI) surgery—under the leadership of Dr. S.K. Bhansali. The Department of General and GI Surgery is situated on the 20th floor and is now a secondary and tertiary referral centre for complex and revision problems.

In the late 90s, we also started conducting laparoscopic surgeries here, followed by hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery including liver transplantation. We now have senior consultants who have specialised in surgical oncology, gastrointestinal surgery, hepatobiliary surgery and laparoscopic surgery. This surgical work is backed by expertise in gastroenterology, interventional radiology and endoscopy—which are full-fledged units offering state-of-the-art services.

Our department runs a postgraduate programme in general surgery of the National Board since 1986 and has a 100% pass rate. It also conducts research and has many publications under its name. In addition to that, it has started organising updates/CMEs for surgeons on a regular basis, as well as updates for the exam-going postgraduate residents with eminent international, national and Mumbai faculty.
