No clinical department at M.P. Birla hospital has changed more in the last twenty five years than the Department of General Surgery. To accomplish our core mission of providing the highest quality patient care, cutting edge research, and an outstanding education to General Surgery residents, Dr Sanjay Maheshwari, MS General Surgery, DNB and Laproscopic Surgeon, came to M.P. Birla Hospital from the Padhar Hospital, DR Rekha Maheshwari, MS General Surgery, to assume those duties.
Surgery department is in existence since the beginning of the hospital (1991). It is the back bone of the hospital. It has created an impact and a BRAND in the society. Department has performed by now more than One Lac major, minor and more importantly life saving procedures. Dr Sanjay and Dr Rekha Maheshwari, couple who are dedicatedly supported the department since last 21 years. They are well-known in and around for his surgical skills and capabilities. And time to time other surgeons like Dr Sunil Agrawal, Dr KC Gupta, Dr Atul Singh, Dr Rajeev Pathak, Dr SP Singh and Dr Rahul Hatondkar has contributed their surgical skills. This department in true sense is a boon for an area which was under developed in terms of service sector 25 years back and right now no super specialty services are available.
The culmination of this recruitment of faculty gives the Department of General Surgery a group of outstanding leaders in senior positions.
