This fruition is not inadvertent but is the sheer outcome of perceptive participation and ethical practices undertaken by our team to achieve objects. 

Specialities

Cardio Thoracic Surgery

 
Cardio thoracic surgery is a medical field which involves the surgical treatment in the thorax. It includes heart, lungs, esophagus and other organs in the chest       
 
Cardiothoracic surgery services include
 
Closed and open heart surgeries
 
When a person is diagnosed with heart disease then he is advised for a surgery which may be open or closed heart surgery that may depend on the complication.
 
A closed heart surgery is an invasive method in which the heart is not opened directly and no heart-lung bypass machine is required. This reduces the chances of complication and it is the first step to any further procedures that deals with the heart.
 
Closed heart surgeries are performed by opening the chest in front or through ribs. This surgery deals with arteries which carry blood from and to the heart rather than dealing with the chambers itself. Palliative heart surgeries are often performed on young children which is carried out in different stages. Some examples of closed heart surgeries are ligation of patent ductus arteriosus, repair of coarctation of the aorta, and the placement of pulmonary artery bands and Blalock-Taussig shunts
 
Every surgery is done by anesthetizing the patients and post surgical care such as regular monitoring of patients by keeping them in ICU, providing intravenous medication to combat pain if any and checking heart beat and blood pressure at regular intervals.
 
Open heart surgery is highly invasive as the name suggests. It involves opening of chest and heart to operate on its chambers, muscles, arteries. One of the most carried out open heart surgery is coronary artery bypass grafting. It involves grafting of a healthy artery or vein to carry blood that becomes impossible with the blocked artery. Hence the newly attached artery brings fresh blood bypassing the old blocked one.
 
Now a days open heart surgery has become a traditional method because of the advancement in this protocol. It involves just a small cut or incision which is unlike the traditional method of wide opening. Open heart surgery is carried out with a help of  heart-lung machine.
 
Open heart surgeries are usually adopted for the following
 
Coronary heart disease which occurs due to narrowing and hardening of blood vessels that provides blood and oxygen to the heart.
In replacement or repair of heart valves through which blood flows from one chamber to another
Replaced damaged heart with donated heart.
 
Beating heart surgery
 
Beating heart surgery is nothing but performing an open heart without the heart-liver machine, while the heart is pumping, thus not stopping it during the surgery. Our surgeons use tissue stabilization system to mobilize the heart when required.
 
This surgery is carried out when the arteries cannot provide enough blood to the heart. In such case physicians mostly recommend for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.     
 
The surgery is usually carried out by grafting technique. The surgeon first gets a healthy vein or artery to act as a graft. One end of it is fixed inside the heart and the other end into the coronary artery just below the block, so that the blood flow bypasses the block there by producing blood to the heart.
 
The surgeon uses a stabilization method to keep the heart steady. The stabilization system consists of heart positioner and tissue stabilization to hold the heart in position while it is being operated. The advantage of this type of surgery is, it reduces the risk that might occur when the heart is temporarily stopped, a condition called reperfusion that occur when the surgeon fails to restore blood to the tissues.
 
Valve repair and replacement
 
Human heart consists of four valves namely tricuspid, bicuspid, mitral and aortic. These play a key role in the flow of blood from and into the heart. The well known ‘lub’ and ‘tub’ sound of the heart is due to the closure of these heart valves. They are vital in maintaining the one way blood flow. Thus any defect in any of these valves is a serious criterion to be addressed immediately. Every repair and replacement is done through open heart surgery.
 
In the repairing process the physician adopts certain procedure. Some of them are listed below.
 
Commissurotomy is a technique to narrow the valves whose leaflets are thickened and gets struck while closing. The surgeon cuts the joints where the leaflets meet to open the valve.
 
Valvuloplasty is a process in which the leaflets are strengthened to close tightly. It is an added support to the valve. A ring like device is attached around the outside of valve opening.
 
Reshaping is done to cut a portion of leaflets and when it is sewn again, the valve functions properly.
 
Decalcification to remove excess amount of calcium storage in the leaflet which when removed restores its function.
 
Repair is a structural support to replace or shorten the cords which in turn supports the valves to close properly.
 
Patching is covering tears and holes in the leaflets with a tissue patching

Nuclear Medicine

It is a medical protocol in which radioactive substances are effectively used in diagnosis and treatment of disease. Unlike other traditional methods such as x-rays, radiation is emitted inside-out which is termed as endoradiology because radiation is emitted from inside the body rather than radiation emitted from an external source.
 
Nuclear medicine diagnosis quickly and the treatment following is safe for our patience. The diagnosis result is so accurate which in other case involves surgery, and other invasive diagnostic tests
 
Physicians will diagnose the affected part in early stages itself by this method. This makes treatment easier and safe. The process also involves the combination of a medicine and radioactive material called as radiopharmaceutical.
 
Apart from diagnosis and treatment, we use nuclear medicine to determine the functions of various organs. The pumping condition of heart is determined by this method. Also to check whether the brain is receives an adequate amount of blood, kidneys function, stomach emptying capacity of the food material, lung function, bone density and vitamin absorption. Nuclear medicine detects even a small bone fracture more accurately than x-rays.

Cardiomyotomy is an invasive procedure for a disorder called Achalasia. It is a severe condition in which the food from the esophagus is not propelled into the stomach.          
 
Laparoscopic colectomies
 
Colectomy is a surgical resection of the large intestine. The colon or large intestine is the last part of the digestive track. In adults It is almost 4 to 6 feet in length. Colon soaks the water content and stores the waste food material. Rectum follows the large intestine. It is the process of removing either small part or the complete colon where the small intestine is directly connected to the rectum. There are 4 methods in this process which includes
 
Sigmoid Colectomy, a process in which either a part or full of sigmoid colon is removed, and the descending colon is connected to the rectum. In case of low anterior resection a prt of sigmoid colon and rectum is removed and the descending colon is connected to the remaining part of the rectum.
 
Abdominal Perineal Resection, is a process in which either a part or full of sigmoid colon and the entire large intestine, rectum and anus are removed. On such cases colostomy is usually performed. Colostomy is creating an opening in the stomach wall to let out the waste material.
 
Colectomy is usually done to in case of diseases like cancer, polyps, irritable bowel disease, bleeding, blockage, volvulus, rectal prolapsed, diverculities, etc., 
 
Laparoscopic Anterior Resection
 
Anterior resection is the procedure to remove a part or whole of the rectum. Rectum is the last part of the large intestine which stores stools before it gets ejected. Anterior resection is usually done for patients affected with rectal cancer or diverticular disease. Diverticular is a protrusion in the intestinal walls which creates pockets in the colon wall. The operation is performed as open or key hole surgery. The later is preferred now a days.
 
Laparoscopic Gastrojejunostomy
 
It is a surgical process, in which the contents of the stomach or other gases are made to bypass directly into jejunum which is considered as the second part of the small intestine with a small tube. This tube helps the solid, liquid food material to directly move into jejunum, bypassing the duodenum, the first part of large intestine. One end of the tube is connected into the stomach and the other end into the jejunum.
 
Endoscopy  
 
Endoscopy is a technique in which, a small specialized tool is sent inside to view and operate internal organs and other vessels. This process involves very small incision or in some cases even that is neglected where endoscopy is sent through mouth.
 
Colonoscopy
 
Colonoscopy is also an endoscopic process which involves the inception of inner lining of intestinal walls of the large intestine. A colonoscopy helps to find ulcers, colon polymps, tumors and areas of inflammation

E.N.T

INSTITUTE OF ENT
 
Our ENT surgeries include
 
Myringoplasty
 
The main aim of this operation is to close perforation of ear drum. Perforation is considered as a hole in the ear drum which may lead to severe ear infection and impair it. Usually it gets rid of itself automatically but not so in many cases. There are number of ways to clear hole, all it depends on size of and hole and the anatomy of the ear.
 
Tympanoplasty
 
Tympanoplasty is a surgical technique which deals with the tympanic membrane of the ear. This method is adopted not only to close the perforation in the region but also in some cases to lift the tympanic membrane from its position in the ear canal to improve the hearing capacity and improve the functioning of the middle ear. This surgery is carried out in inner ear alone and no manipulation to middle ear bone is done. Lateral and medical grafting techniques are also adopted in this process
 
Modified radical mastoidectomy (MRM)
 
Mastoidectomy is done to remove the infected mastoide air cells that gets accumulated in the hollow space of the skull behind the ear. This may cause a great damage to the ear. The diseased cell proliferates into the skull, also into the temporal bones which may lead to removal of the bones.
 
The types of mastoidectomy performed are simple mastoidectomy, radical mastoidectomy and modified radical mastoidectomy.
 
Radical mastoidectomy is less severe when compared to other two methods. Not all the middle ear bones are removed in this process and the ear drum is rebuilt.
 
Stapedectomy
 
Stapedectomy is a microsurgical process in which the innermost bone of the middle ear is completely removed and replaced by a small plastic tube to improve the movement hearing into this region
 
Stapedectomy is not done through incision. The surgeon directly does it through the ear canal by folding the ear drum forward. This entire process is done through operating microscope to have clear insights of the infection.
 
Myringotomy
 
Myringotomy is a surgical procedure in which a small incision is made in the tympanic membrane of the middle ear in the anteroinferior quadrant and posteroinferior quadrant to drain out fluid from the middle ear. Ear tubes made of plastic or metals are inserted through ear drums which may fall automatically or can be removed by doctor in later stage
 
Mastoidectomy
For discharging ears, we perform mastoidectomy where in we remove all accessible mastoid air cells clear active infection, the procedure is usually combined with MYRINGOPLASTY
 
Pre-Auricular sinus excision
 
A pre-auricular sinus is a blind track of sinus formed in the front of the ear. In most cases it is congenital whose origin may be traced due to imperfect fusion of some of the elements that form the ear pinna. This is usually symptomless but in some cases formation of abscess becomes the symptoms for pre-aricular sinus. It also predisposes to ulser formation in front of the ear.
 
Ear lobe repair
 
A split or torn ear lobe is one of the most common problems of the ear. This may happen due to prolonged usage of heavy ear rings. It causes distress to patients who love wearing era ring. Hence ear lobe repair is an optimum rectification for this by which the original ear lobe can be restored.  
 
Post Aural Fistula Closure
 
Post aural fistula closure is a procedure that follows chronic ear disease or an ear surgery. The traditional skin to skin closure is unsafe because of necrotic skin edges which may result to a larger fistula. Hence this method is adopted to avoid future post closure problems.
 
Intra tympanic injection
 
Intra tympanic injection is usually injecting steroids into the inner ear as a remedy to sudden loss in hearing. At first topical phenol anesthesia is applied to the ear drum and the white area is anesthetized. The needle passes through the ear drum to inject the steroid inside. The patient is advised to keep the ear turned up for at least 30 minutes so that steroid remains inside as long as it can.

IVF (IN-VITRO-FERTILIZATION)

INSTITUTE OF IVF
 
Planning and Consultations:
Setting out on the journey with best foot forward sets the tone for the experience that is to follow.
Our first-stage assessments starts as follows:
 
1. The first Visit
The objective of the first visit is to make you feel welcome and relaxed in BFRC, and obtain as much information as possible to allow us to plan the appropriate treatment for you.
 
2. Assessment Consultation
Some couples are not sure of their particular requirements and wish to talk to a doctor to help them understand what they need.
 
3. Scan
Using advanced ultrasound machine for assessment of uterus and ovaries and planning treatment
 
4. Scheduling the Treatment
A critical time for any couple, knowing the treatment process step-by-step will put you at ease and minimise the risk of unpleasant surprises
 
Understanding Infertility:
 
1. Reassurance and Advice
This may be all that is required for some couples especially when they have only been trying to conceive for a short period of time and no significant abnormalities have been defined. The commendations may include weight loss or occasionally weight gain, or advice on how to reduce the effect of stress on the chances of conception
 
2. Ovulation Induction
This is used to treat women who are not ovulating, using tablets or injections to induce ovulation. Couples who have not conceived after six months of successful ovulation will need advanced treatment.
 
3. Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI)
This is the introduction of a prepared sample of the husband's sperm with the optimum motility into the uterus as the woman approaches ovulation. It is widely used, but particularly so in cases where ovulation induction has failed, or where the man has erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.. The woman must have normal Fallopian tubes and the man near normal sperm count
 
4. Donor Insemination (DI)
The same procedure as IUI, donor insemination involves implementing the use of donor sperm in selected cases.
 
5. In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is the most common and well known form of assisted conception. It involves harvesting the wife eggs and fertilising them with the husband sperm in a safe clinical environment. The embryos are then transferred through the cervix into the womb for continued development, and hopefully a pregnancy and birth. IVF is primarily used for the treatment of infertility caused when woman has blocked fallopian tubes, the man has reduced sperm quality, and unexplained infertility
Variations IVF:
We have a detailed understanding of all forms of IVF treatment, and how best to implement them to maximise the benefit to you,
 
Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
This is used when the man has abnormal sperm that are unable to fertilise the eggs naturally during conventional IVF. ICSI involves the use of very powerful microscope with micro manipulators to inject the sperm directly into the egg for fertilisation to occur. The fertilized eggs are further cultured and the resulting embryos are transferred into the womb.
 
Ovum Donation
Women who are unable to produce good quality eggs will require ovum donation. Eggs can be donated either from known donors(such as a sister or friend) or from anonymous donors.
 
IVF Surrogacy
Women with functioning ovaries but without a uterus, who have experienced repeated miscarriages, or with severe medical conditions that are incompatible with pregnancy may require IVF surrogacy. The ovaries of the woman are stimulated; the eggs collected and fertilised with her husband's sperm and then the embryos are transferred into a surrogate's womb where the pregnancy will hopefully develop.
 
Embryo Cryopreservation
IVF commonly leads to the generation of spare embryos. Freezing of these embryos for a later transfer provides the couple with another chance of pregnancy. We employ the latest vitrification techniques, and are now able to offer pregnancy rates with frozen embryos comparable to those achieved using fresh embryos.
 
Other variations and techniques include:
 
Assisted Hatching
involves thinning or making an opening in the shell (zonapellucida), which surrounds the embryo(fertilised egg). It might help the embryos to 'hatch' out of the shell and improve their likelihood of implanting in the uterus
 
TESA (testicular sperm aspiration)
Surgical sperm retrieval for azoospermia. Azoospermia is a condition where no sperm are present in the fluid a man ejaculates.
 
FER (frozen embryo replacement)
In a frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycle we thaw your frozen embryos and transfer one or two of them into the uterus.
 
Donor sperm
At your first consultation with us, we will tell you about the option of using donor sperm, if the tests show that the quality of the man's sperm is very low or there are no living cells in the sperm sample. We will advise you and discuss the ethical aspects involved in using donor sperm.
 
Advanced Techniques:
 
Intracytoplasmic Morphologically-selected Sperm Injection(IMSI)
is an assisted reproduction technique that is particularly powerful against male infertility. This is an extension of ICSI, where powerful microscopes are used to individually select the best sperms for the ICSI procedure.
 
Oocyte Cryopreservation:
This is used for the freezing of oocytes, usually as part of the ovum donation program, but it is increasingly being used for the preservation of fertility in women who want to delay childbirth or are about to undergo chemotherapy or radiation.
 
Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
(also known as embryo screening) refers to procedures that are performed on embryos prior to implantation. The PGD is performed by examining a single cell with regard to aneuploidy (maldistribution of chromosomes) and genetic diseases. This can either be done by using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) or Fluorescence In Situ Hybridisation (FISH) methods.
 
Spindle View (polscope) :
The spindle is an essential organelle of the eggcell, and plays a central role in meiotic development of human egg cells. The spindle is responsible for accurate alignment and distribution of the chromosomes during cell division. Malalignment of the spindle can cause damage to the occyte during ICSI. This can be picked up before ICSI using spindle view in select cases.
 
 

Urology and Nephrology

 
THe Institute of Nephrology is a branch of Science that deals with study, diagnosis and treatment for kidney diseases. There are a few types of renal diseases for which comprehensive care is provided.  They include, Diabetes Mellitus, hypertension, stone problems, genetic defects, infection of kidneys and related parts etc.. Well qualified physicians and experts in their respective fields, and in diagnosis along with other skilled workers offer complete care and service to the patients.
 
Some of the diseases managed are:
 
Acute Kidney disease is also called as acute renal failure or acute kidney injury is a abrupt or rapid failure in the renal filtration function which occurs in just 2 to 3 days. The ability of the kidney to filter the waste from the blood is declined which leads to accumulation of waste products in the blood itself thereby affecting its chemical composition. Balance of fluids and electrolytes are lost immediately. It requires a quick and intensive treatment. We have a round the clock expert team to confront any immediate requirement and emergency.
 
Chronic Kidney disease is a slow loss of kidney over the time. It slowly damages the kidney which leads to increase of waste products in the blood. At later stage it becomes acute. It also results in high blood pressure, anemia, low bone density, nervous problem and poor nutrition in the blood. Chronic disease may also be caused by diabetes, hypertension, etc. Early diagnosis and treatment are necessary which otherwise leads severe injury that requires kidney transplantation to sustain life. We have provided comprehensive care and advice for chronic disease by our expert team.
 
Glomerular diseases is the one in which the kidney losses its capacity to maintain balance of nutrition and electrolytes in the blood stream. Usually the kidneys remove the toxic substances from blood and pass them out through urine maintaining the red blood cells and proteins the blood itself. It gets reversed in glomerular disease where the toxins are maintained and red blood cells and proteins are exited through urine. The albumin protein is vital in absorbing fluids from the body and retain with it until the kidney removes it through the urine. When this albumin protein itself is sent out through the blood, the fluids gets accumulated out of the circulation and gets accumulated in face, hands, feet and ankles which results in swelling. Hence immediate remedy is required which we render with our team of nephrologist.
 
Polycystic Kidney disease is due to formation of cysts in the kidneys. Cysts are small non cancerous, bag like structure that contains water like fluid. This grows bigger and bigger with more accumulation of water and fluid which damages the kidney to a large extent. The cyst may sometimes spread to liver also. The kidneys affected are called as polycystic kidney. It is some time a hereditary disease inherited from parents. The child born to affected parents have a 50% chance of acquiring it. High blood pressure, kidney failures are some of the problems associated with polycystic kidney. Early diagnosis and treatment helps in further proliferation of cysts and reduce complications.
 
Congenital Kidney disorder is the one which affects the kidneys either before or immediately after the birth. They are detected before birth by prenatal tests which can be treated by invasive procedures immediately after birth depending upon the other conditions of the health. Most patients are less than 5 years of age. Some of the disorders include
 
  • Primary defects in the kidney tissues such as parenchymal disease
  • Obstruction of urinary tract
  • Cystic disease
  • Syndromes.
Obstructive Nephropathy is a problem in which the flow of urine is hindered. The flow from kidneys to the urinary bladder through the ureter is blocked and the urine gets backed up in the kidneys. Prolonged retention of urine in the kidney leads to its swelling and thereby damaging either one or both the kidneys. If the block gets opened quickly, then recovery is not a problem. But if it doesn’t happen then it leads to severe damage of kidneys. Some of the common causes of obstructive nephropathy include bladder stone, kidney stone, bladder or urethral cancer, enlargement of prostrate and other spreading cancer.
 
Renal Stone diseases are small, hard stones that are formed from mineral deposits. The minerals that cannot be passed on through urine gets deposited in the kidney and becomes hard as time progresses. The stone may be anywhere in the urinal track but will originate only in the kidney. Kidney stones can be passed out usually by drinking a lot of water to pass it through urine. It is a painful process to get the stone out through urine. In few cases the size of the stone is quite big which cannot pass the urine track. In such cases we provide the necessary treatment and care according to the requirement. Invasive methods are also adopted.
 
Diabetic kidney diseases is a major cause for kidney failure. In this case either dialysis or kidney transplantation is necessary. Treatment can be done to delay the progression of the disease. With diabetes the glucose and sugar level increase in the body which damages the kidney. As a result, the waste toxic and fluids remains in the blood without getting filtered. Hence if blood glucose level is under control then diseases of this type can be controlled.
 
Nephrotic syndrome is a syndrome which is caused by kidney failure. It leads to flow of protein albumin along with urine. It becomes acute when untreated. The fluids in the blood gets stagnated and results in swelling of the face, anklets, hands and feet. Other symptoms include foamy appearance of urine, abnormal weight gain due to fluid retention outside the circulation track, poor appetite.
 
Pediatric kidney diseases are also a severe problem as far as children are concerned. Children and young adolescents are prone to kidney disease nowadays. It may be a congenital disorder, or may be due to hereditary diabetics. We give a complete care for pediatric kidney diseases and all the treatment protocols are under one roof.
 
Dialysis
Dialysis is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy) due to renal failure. Dialysis may be used for very sick patients who have suddenly but temporarily, lost their kidney function (acute renal failure) or for quite stable patients who have permanently lost their kidney function (stage 5 chronic kidney disease). When healthy, the kidneys maintain the body's internal equilibrium of water and minerals (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sulfate) and the kidneys remove from the blood the daily metabolic load of fixed hydrogen ions. The kidneys also function as a part of the endocrine system producing erythropoietin and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (calcitriol)
Our successful team has experts who can perform the following.
 
  • Hemodialysis is a process of removing the waste products from the blood when the kidneys are not functioning. There are few types in hemodialysis like:
  • Inpatient Hemodialysis
  • Outpatient Hemodialysis
  • Day time & nocturnal Hemodialysis
  • ICU Dialysis. – SLED & CRRT.
  • Peritoneal Dialysis – continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
  • Automated peritoneal dialysis
  • Dedicated Hemodialysis machines for Hepatitis B & C patients
 
Kidney transplantation
 
Kidney or renal transplantation is an end stage procedure for the lost kidney function. When both kidneys are damaged with disease kidney transplantation is the suggested protocol as dialysis cannot be a lifelong procedure. Highlights of kidney transplantation team include.
  • Well experienced Nephrologists
  • Transplant Surgeons

UROLOGY
 
Urology is a branch of science that deals with diagnosis and treatment of diseases in urinary tract system and male reproductive system. It includes kidneys, adrenal glands, urinary bladder, urethra, ureters and male reproductive organs
 
Our highly qualified urologist team are experienced in following
 
Endourology is a minimum invasive procedure to remove or fragment kidney stone with the help of tiny endoscopic instruments. the process is carried out through urethra, urinary bladder and ureter. Endourological procedures include urethroscopy, cystoscopy, ureteroscopy, and nephroscopy.
 
Laparoscopic Urology or a key hole surgery in which two to three incisions are made instead of a large cut. Although it is only a key hole, the view obtained is bright and wide, more convenient for the physician to operate. Quick healing method adopted for renal operations.
 
Paediatric Urology provides comprehensive and intensive care for children affected with renal diseases. All urological disorders and problems of children are diagnosed by a special team of pediatric urologists.
 
Andrology is the one which is exclusively for men like gynecology for women. Andrology deals with men reproductive system and disorders such as infertility and sexual dysfunctions associated with it.

Department of Neurology

 
Neurology is a branch of medical science which deals with complete nervous system of the human body, the peripheral and central nervous system. This also includes diagnosis and treatment of nervous disorders.
 
Brain disorders
Brain is the control centre of the body. All the nervous system, spinal cord and neurons are connected to it. A brain disorder happens usually with an injury, disease or other health problems. Some disorders of brain include confusion, head ache, seizures, memory problem, change from normal behavior, problem in vision, lack of muscle control, vomiting, nausea, etc., we treat some brain disorders by :

This vertebrae is key in protecting the spinal cord and responsible for movements like bending and standing. A disorder of this kind is usually critical. Some spinal disorders are caused by injury, infection, tumors, spondylitis, scollosis, bone change that occurs with age, etc.,      
We treat spinal disorders by
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Micro lumbar discectomy
  • Micro endoscopic discectomy

Stroke
 
Stroke is nothing but a brain attack. It occurs when the flow of blood to the brain is restricted with a blockage. When this condition occurs, the brain loses its oxygen supply and the cells begin to die. The part of the body controlled by that side of the brain is affected. The problem may vary from temporary weakness of arm and leg to permanent paralysis of one side of the body. We treat stroke in the following ways:
  • Diagnosis & treatment for acute & chronic strokes of various types
  • Intravenous & selective intra-arterial thrombolytic therapy

Dental department

 
INSTITUTE OF DENTISTRY
 
It is a branch of medical science which deals with the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral cavity which also includes jaw and facial area (maxillofacial). Dentistry does not only involve the teeth alone as many may think, it is overall oral care and other regions associated with this. The team consists of well experienced dentists and dental auxiliaries to assist them.
 
We are specialized in
 
Oral pathology
 
Oral pathology deals with the disease that involves mouth and its associated structures which include salivary gland, facial muscles and other joints connected with it.  
 
Prosthodontics
 
Prosthodontics is nothing but the process of replacement and restoration of new teeth to bring back the beautiful smile. Teeth loss can happen due to an accident or aging process.
 
Orthodontics
 
Orthodontics is method of repositioning the teeth and jaws to a proper natural position. Some people have crooked teeth arrangement which might look very odd in the way spoiling their beauty. Also crooked teeth are not easy to clean which leads to teeth decay and other infections. Chewing of food with this arrangement gives more strain to jaw muscle which in later stage becomes an irritant.
 
Fixing braces are widely adopted remedy to make teeth look even and neat. Braces usually consist of band, wire and brackets.
 
Pediatric dentistry
 
The name indicates the department. It deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of oral care of children from infancy to teen age. Pediatric dentistry is considered vital because many developmental stages of teeth happen for these age groups.
 
Conservative dentistry and endodontics
 
Conservative dentistry deals with the conservation of teeth. The treatment procedure includes repair and replacement of lost and defective dental tissues of particular teeth. Comprehensive reminerizalition of carious teeth is done as a part of restoration treatment. Endodontics is a traditional and most widely adopted method by the conservative dentistry.
 
Endodontics is a study and treatment of dental pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue). The most common therapy of endodontics are root canal therapy. Endodontic surgery may be undergone in some cases. The surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals more accurately than x-ray. The surgery also helps in removing too much calcium deposits from the root canal and damaged root surfaces surrounding the bone can also be treated.
 
Periodontics
 
It is the branch which deals with study and diagnosis of the supporting structure of the teeth and also disease affecting them. Comprehensive treatment of oral inflammation is also provided. It also includes treating other periodontal issues such as gum disease. Other treatment includes scaling, root planning (infected surface of the root is cleaned) or root debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed).
 
Other facilities of this department include
 
Laser dentistry
 
Laser dentistry is one of the techniques in treating oral diseases. The main advantage of laser is that it sends a sharp focus on the affected region alone, thereby sparing the nearby healthy tissues. We have well qualified physicians who have incorporated the nuances of the technology. We use laser to treat diseases like
 
Tooth decay, where the decay within the tooth is removed and the surrounding enamel region is made ready to be filled. Laser is also used to harden the filling.
 
Gum disease, in which laser is used to reshape the gums and kills bacteria during the performances of root canal procedures.
 
Biopsy or lesion removal, where laser is used to collect sample tissues (a biopsy technique) for examination of cancer. It is also used to remove lesions which cause a severe pain called canker sores.
 
Teeth whitening, in which laser is used to restore the whitening look of the teeth, by activating the peroxide bleaching solution applied on the surface of the teeth.
 
Laser dentistry is a fast growing technology which requires no invasive procedures, no bleeding or stitches and the wounds heels faster and restores the tissue
 
Cosmetic dentistry
 
It is the next higher step to the tradition form of dentistry. This aesthetic dentistry is any dental work which improves the appearance of the teeth. The techniques include whitening, straightening, reshape and repairing of teeth to improve the beauty of smile which in turn improves the overall beauty. Filling the gap between the teeth with the tooth color itself, closing the gaps between the teeth, closing the broken teeth with the crown are the other techniques of this industry.      
 
Smile designing
 
Smile designing is a technique to improve the beauty of smile. It is obvious that all people have the tendency to have a beautiful and pleasing smile. It is the teeth and lips which pave the way for it. Cosmetic dentistry and its techniques are involved in smile designing process. Some of the cosmetic dentistry techniques implemented in smile designing are
 
Tooth color is the foremost of the procedures. The color of teeth changes as time passes by which is more in people addicted to smoking, alcohol consumption and over intake of tea and coffee. Their natural and original white color is restored by filling silver and amalgam fillings and the stained color is removed. White and bright teeth tend your smile to look young. Our experts are well versed in matching the white color and its brightness according to the skin tone.
 
Alignment and spacing is done for teeth that crooked, overlapping and have gaps between them. They are aligned in such a way that they are neatly arranged and spaced with no gaps and all looks even when smiled.
 
Missing teeth affects the appearance of the smile. It looks odd whenever the person smiles. Also food consumption with missing teeth may lead to tooth decay. Restoring is done by tooth implants, bridges and partial dentures. Broken teeth are also repaired by placing crowns over it which looks like a full tooth.
 
Cosmetic facial surgery
 
The surgery is performed to improve person’s appearance and there by the self esteem by changing the look of the person. Our experts are well versed maxilofacial surgeons. Some of the surgeries include
  • Face lift                                          
  • Mid face lift
  • Neck lift
  • Lip lift
  • Forehead and eyebrows lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Cosmetic nose and era surgery
  • Minor oral surgery
As the name suggests, minor surgeries are small surgeries such as removal of wisdom teeth, impacted teeth and broken teeth which is carried out by oral surgeons only. The operation is performed under local anesthetic conditions only. These surgeries require very less time and it doesn’t need hospital stay.
 
Microscopic endodontics
 
Microscopic endodontics is an advanced and most successful in endodontic surgical techniques. With this the affected area is magnified and even small structures not visible clearly through naked eye can be treated well. The patient feels a negligible amount of pain only with this method and proves a long term effects.
 
Each tooth consists of two to three roots with each having three root canals attached to it. The root canals are very thin and hair like structure which when untreated lead to severe consequences. The infection in root canal occurs as a result of tooth decay. With the help of microscopic treatment these very small and thin damaged structures can also be treated effectively. The physician takes a look of the insights through the microscope which gives him a magnified view for better surgical procedures. The regions of inflammation are viewed effectively through a three dimensional volume tomography (DVT).
 
Implant dentistry
 
Implant dentistry is implanting the root on which the crown rests. The visible structure is called crown and the structure which is hidden inside that extends till the jaw bone is called as root. The root plays the vital part in holding the crown. Here implantation of root is done by a material called as titanium which is bio compatible and fuses into the jaw bone giving strength to the crown. This process of implanting titanium root to fuse into the jaw bone is called as osseointegration. 
 
Invisible orthodontics
 
Invisible orthodontics replaced the traditional orthodontic methods of wearing braces with brackets and wires which gives an odd look when smiled. This method consists of strong and rigid invisible braces that are least visible. However these can be applied only to adults and older teen aged people where as children and young teens cannot be applied with this method. Only traditional braces will suit them.
 
These aligners are manufactured with advanced computer technology to detect tooth movement and gradually straighten them. Invisible orthodontics can be used to clear following defects
 
Overbite or overjet
Crowded or widely spaced teeth
Overlapping and crooked teeth.
