General surgery – hernias

A hernia (rupture) is usually identified as a lump that appears when tissue breaks through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. General surgery on the abdominal wall is the only solution to a hernia.

For hernia surgery to be effective and long-lasting, it must be ‘tension free’. Pulling the ruptured part of the abdomen wall tightly together with stitches is likely to lead to a rapid recurrence of the hernia. At Chettinad Super Specilaity Hospital, general surgery for hernias involves bridging the gap between the edges of the rupture with a plastic mesh. This is strong, flexible, and permanent, and does not cause any adverse reaction in the body. This technique can be used to provide a long-lasting and durable repair to all types of hernias.

Inguinal hernia

This is the most common type of hernia, occurring predominantly in men, and is usually either confined to one side of the abdomen wall, or present on both (bilateral).

Femoral hernia

Typically occurring more often in women than men, the femoral hernia is usually smaller and occurs slightly lower down in the body than an inguinal hernia.

Incisional hernia

Whenever a cut is made into the abdominal cavity, the resulting wound, even when fully healed, may not to be as strong as the original abdominal wall. If the muscle gives way, then an incisional hernia develops.

Surgeries performed regularly

  • Hernia (open and Laparoscopic hernia repair)
  • Gall Bladder (stones/polyps) Open and laparoscopic

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently

The department of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery at Chettinad Super Speciality Hospital offers a wide range of services for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to arterial, venous and lymphatic systems. Vascular surgery is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. Endovascular surgery is a rapidly advancing field, where the surgeon works via a needle puncture and is able to "recanalise" narrowed or blocked arteries, and prevent dangerously dilated arteries (aneurysms) from bursting, by inserting an artificial artery inside the abnormal segment.

Outpatient Minor Surgical Treatments

Scar revision, mole/lesion/cyst removal and wound care are some of the minor operations that are treated at the clinic.

Hand & Wrist Surgery

Hand surgery is often required after an injury or if you suffer with arthritis, a tumour, a nerve problem or have a birth defect. Hand surgery requires a combination of tissue handling techniques including, microsurgery, tendon, nerve, and ligament and bone reconstruction. The hand is particularly unforgiving following injury or surgery, a team approach involving patient, hand therapist and properly trained surgeon is essential for the optimal outcome. Reconstructive wrist surgery helps to repair damaged tissues and reduce pain and weakness. If arthritis has developed, surgery will, in many cases, improve the pain.

Male Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Male breast reduction surgery, or Gynaecomastia (surgery to remove excess fat and breast tissue often using liposuction techniques. If there is significant droopiness then skin may also need to be removed), skin cancer excision and reconstruction (excision of skin cancer with cosmetic reconstruction of defects on the face and body often using local tissues or skin grafts).

The human digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal tract and hepato-biliary system, and is responsible for processing food and circulating the nutrition derived from it. The upper GI tract is comprised of the oesophagus (food-pipe), stomach and duodenum, while the large and small intestines and the anus, together, form the lower GI tract. The liver and pancreas are two major glandular organs whose secretions aid in digestion.

We treat all gastrointestinal diseases including oesophagal and gastric disorders, colorectal conditions and cancers of the digestive organs

Request Appointment


We are equipped to offer surgical treatments (both open and laproscopy) of all diseases of the digestive tract, liver, gall bladder, bile duct, pancreas, spleen and tumours of the GI tract.


CSSH’s trained and expert surgeons perform open and advanced minimal-access surgery (laparoscopy or thoracoscopy). They also do revision surgeries on patients who have had complications from earlier operations.

Very few centres in the country can match Chettinad’s cutting-edge surgical infrastructure. For laparoscopic surgery, our surgeons use sophisticated HD-system optics and power systems such as harmonic scalpel and APC.

The equipment and instrumentation for open surgery is similarly high-end and includes intra operative ultrasound, in addition to dedicated and completely infection-free OTs and ICUs.


  • Upper GI conditions such as severe gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), cancer of the oesophagus and stomach, complicated duodenal or gastric ulcers and upper GI bleeding that is not controlled by endoscopy.
  • All diseases of the colon and rectum, from polyps and rectal prolapse to uncontrolled ulcerative colitis and cancers of the colon and rectum.
  • Other abdominal conditions, such as treatment of various tumours of the abdominal cavity and gastrointestinal lining (the mesentery, mesocolon and retro-peritoneum).
  • Morbid obesity, when not managed medically can be controlled by laparoscopic anti-obesity surgeries.
