Department of Surgery
The department of  surgery has been rendering commendable service to the patients residing in North Delhi, particularly since the General Hospital was commissioned in 1976.
There are four large operation theatres, well designed and equipped with most modern operating tables, lighting systems, high speed autoclave, Ethylene Oxide Sterilisation Unit, Fibreoptic Endoscopes (Bronchoscope, Oesophagoscope, Gastroscope, Cytoscope and Resectoscope for Transurethral resections of prostate), an operating microscope, an Image Intensifier Unit, Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Equipment and many other equipment.
Post Operative Intensive Care Unit
There is an 8 bedded post operative intensive care unit  for surgical patients. The ICU is equipped with piped oxygen, suction and compressed air. There are ventilators, pulse oxymeters and cardiac monitoring equipment exclusively for the surgical patients.
Academic Engagements
The department is recognised for 1st year junior residency by the Indian Medical Council and the Delhi University. There are 8 house surgeons working in the department at a time. It is also recognised for training candidates for the Diplomate of the National Board Examination. Two candidates are selected for training each year.
Laparoscopic Surgery
The department has the facility to perform Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. This   method of removing gall bladder is relatively new and has the advantage of requiring very small incisions resulting in faster patient recovery as well as being much less painful than the conventional procedure. The patient stay in the hospital will be shortened considerably  and post operative complications are fewer. Besides Cholecystectomy there are other applications for Hernia repair and Appendectomy.
The department is headed by Dr. Sudhir Joseph MS (Surg.) who is also the Director of the Hospital.
