General Surgery in Kolkata
General surgery is the basic specialty of the surgery. A good general surgeon involved from the process of diagnosis to the perioperative care of the patient (i.e. before, during and after the surgery). In many jurisdictions, they may also take part in the management of critically ill patients and those who are the victims of trauma.
Although its scope is broad, it generally deals with the cysts, tumors, sinus, fistula, infection, abscess and injuries involving the abdomen, chests, back, limbs, head and neck areas. Like every surgeon, at first Dr. Susenjit Prasad Mahato became one of the best General surgeon in Kolkata and then focused his career for higher specialties.
Diseases those are addressed in this specialty are:
This is a slow-growing, fatty lump that’s most often found between our skin and the muscle layer. A lipoma, which feels doughy and non tender, moves readily with slight finger pressure. Lipomas are usually detected in middle age. Treatment of choice is excision of the tumor. Surgery of these lipomas are the most common general surgery in Kolkata.
These are typically harmless, slow-growing bumps over the skin. They usually appear on the scalp, face, trunk, back and buttock area. They are also called epidermal inclusion cysts. But it’s more accurate to call them sebaceous cysts. Treatment is surgical excision of the cyst.
These are a type of lump that appear as red or purple swelling on our skin. They are originating from rapidly dividing cells of blood vessel walls (i.e. endothelial cells). Although hemangiomas are most common in infants and children, adults can develop them too. Treatment is surgical excision of the tumor.
These cysts are most commonly develop in the wrist. They’re typically round or oval shaped. Ganglion cysts are lumps that most often appear along the tendons or joints of wrists or hands. They also can occur in ankles and feet.
Mucus retention cyst or mucocele
These are painless fluid filled cyst on the inner surface of our mouth, mostly on the inner part of the lower lip. They can also developed in inner cheeks, tongue, gums and the floor of the mouth. They are usually occur due to minor trauma, such as biting your lip. Smaller mucoceles normally go away on their own. But large cysts can cause issues with talking, chewing, swallowing and in rare cases, breathing. Therefore, one should visit to a general surgeon in Kolkata to have them remove any large oral mucoceles.
These cysts may contain hair, teeth or nerves. They usually appear at birth. Dermoid cysts often form on our head and neck but may also be found in our ovaries, on spine or elsewhere in the body. Though dermoid cysts are harmless, general surgeon in Kolkata often removes these cysts with surgery.
It is an infection of the proximal and lateral fingernails and toenails folds. This condition can occur spontaneously or following trauma. Paronychia is among the most common infections of the hand any general surgeon in Kolkata needs to treat.
