According to Sukhmeet, the department will also be a point of service for a variety of specialties including general surgery, breast health and breast surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, ENT surgery, urology, cardiology, nephrology, ophthalmology, nutrition, plastic surgery and reconstructive, pediatrics among others.

“The department is suitable for minor surgical procedures, and has got access to a wide range of doctors and medicines. It is ideal for accident-related emergencies/ambulance-on-call, and will curate a database of medical history and research depending on the frequency of one’s visit,” Sukhmeet says.

Furthermore, Sukhmeet says the OPD will serve as a training ground for medical, para-medical, nursing staff and future doctors.
