Children born with the problem of cleft palate or cleft lip have a wide array of problems that are often very complex and extensive. These include unclear speech, abnormal facial look, learning problem, dental issues, and poor hearing. However, the craniofacial disorder is rare and occur in every 1 child in 2000.
Our team’s main focus is to provide every child with a chance of improving their self-image, develop understandable speech, intact hearing, healthy teeth and useful vision. The programs have helped many to carry out the smooth progression from childhood to adolescence and into adulthood.
2. Reconstructive Plastic Surgeries
We offer a wide variety of procedures under our reconstructive surgery treatment options that help to repair what is damaged. Damage such as tissue damage by congenital disabilities, severe burns or traumatic injuries, etc. Individuals also carry it out to correct body anomalies and facial problems like injury, disease, or aging. Our general goal is to create a normal appearance and regain the lost self-esteem of the patients. The following are the common plastic surgery procedure that we offer at Sahyadri Hospital:
Our surgeons perform acute and elective hand surgery to restore and regain the structure as well as functionalities of the whole hand, including wrist and fingers. This defect may arise due to a medical condition, traumatic injury, severe infection, hand deformity or birth defect. No matter the reason, our highly trained and certified surgeons carry either an emergency procedure or an elective process to treat this severity. It is a necessary step that you must take in burn reconstruction, tumour in the soft tissue, skin or bone, etc.
– Maxillofacial surgery
At Sahyadri Hospital, we have a team of highly experienced maxillofacial surgeons that are trained to handle a wide variety of injuries and conditions that affect the mouth, jaw, head, neck, and face. Moreover, they are highly qualified to treat conditions like:
– Impacted wisdom teeth
– Misaligned jaws
– Cancer of the neck and head
– Dental implants
– Oral reconstructive surgery
The surgeons also have years of experience in how to give anaesthesia and control pain. The process helps the patient to correct many deformities. Moreover, the surgeries so performed are generally outpatient surgeries. In addition to these, our doctor will also provide you with a full recovery sheet to follow after surgery and other follow-up appointments to attend.
Replantation is a surgical procedure carried out by our doctors and surgeons to reattach a part of the body, including hand, finger, toe, etc. It is necessary when an organ or a part has been fully cut from the body. The goal here is to restore and reattach the injured part’s function to as normal as possible.
Replantation is sometimes not possible because the body part is too injured to be fixed. So in such cases, the doctors use prosthesis in place of the missing part. However, it will only be implanted if it works in a good way. This means the doctor will not implant a prosthesis if it will be painful, will not work or will get in the everyday activity of the patient.
The doctors of Sahyadri Hospital will recommend you this surgery when they want to remove cancer. For instance, if you have breast cancer, they will suggest you go through reconstructive surgery. In the process, our well-versed doctors will replace your breast with an implant. Another example is if you are going through skin cancer, neck cancer or any other cancer, the doctor will try to treat it by removing tissues and nerves from these areas. Our doctor will work closely with your oncologist and other healthcare members to treat this problem from the root.
Other than plastic surgery, we also offer our patients the treatment of cosmetic surgery, aiming to improve the patient’s appearance. It can be performed on all the body areas, including the neck, head, and body. People chose to go through cosmetic surgery not because the particular part is not working properly but because it lacks aesthetic appeal. The following are the processes that we offer at Sahyadri Hospital:
Breast cancer surgery is necessary when the patient has cancer and wants to remove it through an operation. This type of surgery may be carried out by our doctors alone or using other treatments like hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapy. This is an effective treatment for patients who are at a high risk of breast cancer.
To reduce ageing signs in people, the patient can opt for the facelift option provided by Sahyadri Hospital. It helps reduce folds and sagging on the skin, making you look younger. Moreover, if you want to reduce fat from specific areas of the body like hips, abdomen, arms, buttocks, or neck, then liposuction can benefit you. In addition to this, we also offer abdominoplasty to patients who wish to have a thinner and firm abdomen.
We also offer our patient the option of Rhinoplasty. It helps change the appearance of the nose and improve their ability to breathe. This can be done for functional as well as for aesthetic purpose.
This process helps the patients minimize the scar and blend it with the surrounding skin texture and tone. The revision will not remove the scar or heal it but will make it less visible and more cosmetically appealing.
It is a multidisciplinary approach that the doctor uses to combine the result of orthopaedics and the principle of plastic surgery for relieving the patient of musculoskeletal problems. As in the case of lack of soft tissue in the patient, the doctor may recommend orthopaedic surgery to treat failed joint replacement. You may also need surgery for soft tissue reconstruction in people with cancer or trauma or nerve and neuroma management for patients suffering through limb amputations.
We also have a separate burn clinic in our hospital to provide extensive care to our patients. As soon as you arrive in this clinic, the doctor will access the severity of your situation by examining the burn. If the situation is worse, i.e., the burn appears on more than 10 per cent of the body, you will be asked to get admitted to the burn centre. You will also be treated as a severe case if the burn is deep, on the feet or groin, face or follow other burn association criteria.
You can treat a minor burn from home and in just a couple of weeks. But for severe burns, you need to have first aid and wound assessment, wound therapy, medication, surgery and another process. The doctors’ goal will be to treat pain, prevent the appearance of infection, remove dead tissue, reduce scarring, and regain normal function. In addition to the medical treatment, patients who have suffered from severe burn accidents also require emotional support and extended follow-up care like physical therapy.
Dermatology Services at Sahyadri Hospital

If your child faces any problem relating to skin diseases like warts, birthmarks, eczema, or psoriasis, you need the help of a specialized doctor. Our pediatric dermatologist is highly trained and has years of experience to provide proper treatment to your child. They offer a wide variety of treatment option to treat the child of their skin diseases. We also offer a laser treatment option to children in need. They generally provide the following services:

- Minor surgical treatment options to children, including removal of skin lesions, skin biopsies, and laser treatment for curing vascular birthmarks.
- Medical treatment for curing conditions affecting nails, hair and skin.
Treatment involving kids is a very sensitive area as they are not able to tell what is bothering them. They cannot provide medical answers to doctors for proper analysis. So it would help if you had an experienced pediatric dermatologist that can analyze and treat the child in a very good way. Without getting a direct answer from the patient, they can easily identify the problem and successfully put them into ease by safely using medical equipment.
Moreover, they are well aware when it’s just a sign of growing and developing and when it is a severe condition. These doctors are experts in the correct diagnosis and management of skin diseases and know its exact treatment plan.
3. Cosmetic Dermatology
Many people are actively looking for solutions to their skin and hair problems. Thus, we at Sahyadri Hospital offer all the patients a well-resulted treatment option. Moreover, it is the latest and up-to-date method of treating various skin problems. Our department contains all type of equipment required to carry out dermatological surgical processes for removing moles, corns, warts, xanthelasma, sebaceous cyst, etc.
The different process that we offer at Sahyadri Hospital includes the following:
Our doctors perform chemical cautery in patients who want to get rid of skin tags, milia, warts and molluscum contagiosum. In the process, the doctors burn a small part of the body to destroy tissue. While some are treated with routine medicines. The process is most commonly used in removing small skin lesions. When the skin is burned, it results in the destruction of a part of the skin. This further forces the skin to rejuvenate.
In order to treat warts, moles, skin tags and other skin disorder in people, the doctors perform the process of radiosurgery. A passage of radio signals is introduced in the skin to carry out the removal or reshaping process in patients. The doctors select among the different types of electrodes, keeping in mind your condition and the type of lesion you are suffering from. For example, scalpel blade, fine needle, wire loop, etc.
There are different types of chemical peel option provided by the dermatologist. It helps rejuvenate the skin, improve texture, smoothen it and clear the skin. The procedure involves applying a chemical solution to the skin’s upper layer to treat wrinkles, remove scars, and discoloured skin. There are usually different depths up to which the solution is applied, ranging from light to deep. The deeper it reaches, the more dramatic the result will be. However, it will also take a longer time to recover.
Intralesional therapy is used by doctors to treat skin lesions. It is an injection of a high concentration of drug directly applied in the area of skin lesions without a systematic process of absorption
4. Dermatological Cancers
We at Sahyadri Hospital also provide treatment for all type of dermatological cancers. This cancer usually starts appearing when the healthy cell starts growing abnormally and forms a mass or tumour. This tumour can either be cancerous or non-cancerous. A cancerous tumor turns malignant when it starts to grow and spread to other parts of the body. On the other hand, when the tumor is benign, it does not have the threat of spreading.
Our doctors carry out a well-developed diagnosis of these medical conditions to make sure to catch them in the early stage. If you find the symptoms of skin cancer early, there is an increased chance of curing it. In some cases, the cancer is at an advanced stage and requires advanced treatment. At Sahyadri Hospital, we have a multidisciplinary team of radiation oncologists, dermatologists, surgical oncologists, and medical oncologists to give in-depth treatment to people.
The following are the different skin cancer experienced by people:
- Basal cell Carcinoma- It mostly develops in the head and neck area of patients; however, found everywhere on the skin. It arises because of the sun exposure in people who have gone through radiation therapy in their childhood. It grows slowly and rarely to all the parts of the body if not treated in time.
- Squamous cell carcinoma– This type of skin cancer also develops due to skin exposure so the doctors can diagnose it from any region of the skin. It can also develop in the area where the patient has recently developed burn, exposed to x-rays, or damaged by chemicals.
- Melanoma- These cells produce the pigment melanin that helps to maintain the skin color of the body. Moreover, this cancer develops from the melanocytes and is the most serious cancer type.
- Merkel Cell cancer- Merkel cell cancer is a fast-growing, highly aggressive, rare cancer which develops in hormone-producing cells present beneath the skin and inside the hair follicles. These are found in the neck and head region and are also known by the name neuroendocrine carcinoma.
