The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a comprehensive care unit that offers the complete range of services from basic care to advanced microsurgery.
Under the purview of this department are correction of birth deformities, reconstructive surgery after trauma and cancer treatment, reattaching of fingers and toes, and micro-neural surgery for brachial plexus injuries.
The Department’s plastic surgeons render their services to trauma victims, often working alongside orthopaedic surgeons to provide soft tissue cover over injuries that have resulted in exposed bone, like in compound fractures. This enables the team of doctors to treat the patient in one shot, rather than through a series of surgeries.
The benefits to the patient are threefold: they are spared the trauma of going under the knife several times; the risk of infection due to exposed bones and implants is minimised, and this, in turn, improves the prognoses. In fact, MIOT has a success rate that is over 99% in micro-vascular-flap reconstructive surgery.
The team is supported by state-of-the-art imaging facilities and sophisticated OT set-ups.
Tulasi Hospital is a leading tertiary care, hand-surgery referral center offering round-the-clock replantation of severed fingers and hands in suitable patients. Reconstructive microsurgery on patients who suffer from trauma or birth-related brachial plexus injury (resulting in paralysis of the entire arm), complex reconstructions of defects involving the oral cavity, head, neck and soft tissue of any part of the body in cancer patients, correction of congenital deformities, care of diabetic wounds, and liposuction are also offered by the department.
