Department of Surgery shares the spirit, and is connected by our dedication to the purity of creating a place where any patient can come at any time to receive the best treatment possible. By small triumphs or major leaps; the product of teamwork or individual incentive; each act that moves us closer to this ideal is important, and energized by passion. Surgical unit I is a true General Surgical Unit because we deal with Hepatobiliary, GIT, Vascular, Endocrine , Thoracic, Breast diseases & Trauma and because of lack of specialized units of Plastic surgery, Pediatrics Surgery, Thoracic surgery in Allied Hospitals, we also deal with these cases.

TELEMEDICINE & MDM
Neither a surgeon nor an oncologist alone can treat a cancer patient. It is the multimodality approach involving different specialties including surgery, oncology, pathology, diagnostic radiology, gynecology, psychiatry & nutrition. One of the biggest achievement of the year 2016 was in the field of Telemedicine.
We continued having our liaison with Nuclear Medicine Oncology and Radiotherapy Institute (NORI), Islamabad. We have weekly sessions on every Friday from 8:00AM to 9:00 am. In every session 2-3 cases are discussed regarding their management and further plan. More than 400 patients have been discussed so far. This not only improves patient care and saves the time but also provide a better insight of the disease process. A number of patients have been referred to NORI for Radio-chemotherapy and vice-versa, to SU-I for surgery. Common malignancies discussed were CA Breast, CA thyroid, Skin & Soft tissue tumors and GIT malignancies.
Our Future plans are to ensure the involvement of Radiologists and Pathologists in the session.
One of major milestones we had achieved this year was establishment of a Specialty Clinic—— the Breast Clinic. It was established in March 2014. The timings are 10 am to 12 pm every Wednesday in OPD Room 39.In 2016, 235 patients got registered in breast clinic.
Our goals are to develop, implement and promote best practice, patient focused multi-disciplinary breast care, to facilitate the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer & to monitor breast cancer outcomes through data collection and analysis.
Breast clinic at BBH provides value care for the patients having breast cancer or other breast related issues such as changes in breast skin, nipple discharge, breast infection and breast pain.Patients are examined by very skillful and learned female surgeons Mammography, ultrasound, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy services are available here at very low cost. Trucut biopsy facility is available on OPD basis to avoid multiple visits.
Weekly MDM sessions are held with NORI (Oncology) for better insight of disease on individual patient basis.
ESTABLISHMENT OF LAPROCOPIC SKILL LAB
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), band aid surgery, or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed far from their location through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) elsewhere in the body. Laparoscopic surgery is the demand of recent times so our great Prof Dr NaeemZia keeping in view this demand put his greatest effort in establishment of laparoscopic skill labs for post graduate trainees of surgical unit I. He advocated a room for it from its renovation till completion of it from all resources of himself without any assistance of hospital funds.
It is great achievement and it is greatly helpful in learning different techniques for trainees as well as improving their expertise for senior registrar of surgical floor.
