The teeth form a very important part of the body and good health starts with good oral health. New research has shown a close relation between periodontal disease and cardiac disease. Thus, general well-being is associated with good oral health.

Run by a team of highly experienced Dental surgeons and specialists, the Dental Department at Lifecare Hospital offers comprehensive dental care in all specialties of Dental Surgery, including a variety of treatments such as:

  • Bridges and Dentures: Bridges and dentures are two ways to restore a badly damaged tooth or replace a lost tooth.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are used to replace missing roots and support replacement teeth, which may be fixed to the implant(s).
  • Orthodontics at Any Age : Orthodontic treatment includes the use of braces or other appliances to put gentle pressure on teeth to move them into the right position.
  • Root Canal Treatment: Root canal treatment is the process of removing the infected, injured or dead pulp from a tooth.
  • Fillings: While there are several different types of fillings available to fill a cavity, it is entirely up to you to decide what type is to be used.
  • Crowns: If your tooth is damaged but not lost, a crown (also called a cap) can be used to cover the damaged part of your tooth. This protects your tooth from further damage.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry:

With the need to look good, over the years, there has been a steady increase demand for Cosmetic Dentistry. Here, utilizing certain procedures, a person’s appearance can be changed to an extent. The following cosmetic procedures are offered:

  • Bonding and Veneers: To make your teeth look better by changing their colour, shape or spacing.
  • Whitening: Although teeth are not naturally meant to be completely white, many people want whiter teeth for that confident and brighter smile. Accordingly, a wide range of "whitening" options are available
  • Ceramic Veneers: These veneers are bonded to the surface of your teeth to correct chips, gaps, or additional problems.
  • Diastema Closures: This procedure is used to close gaps between teeth.

Laboratory Medicine

Department of Laboratory Medicine

This Department has vital elements for diagnosis, planning treatment and monitoring of every disease from the most common to the esoteric. Laboratory services are fully equipped with state of art, ultra-modern, technology platforms.

The majority of analytical machines and systems are bi-directionally interfaced with the server; hence results that are generated by automated systems are directly transferred into the dedicated Centralized Laboratory Information Management System (LIS) and then reviewed by the pathologists.

The Department consists of Doctors and Scientists from various branches of Laboratory Medicine whom the treating physician can rely on for consultation.

Speciality

The Hematology section provides both routine and specialized hematological investigations and coagulation studies. We subscribe to the College of American Pathologists (CAP) proficiency testing programs to quality compatible with the best in the world. We have internal quality management programs and monitoring to ensure technical competency and consistency in testing.

The Hematology section uses both automation and manual techniques in the analysis of samples. Significant array of hematological tests are available on board. They include CBC, electrophoresis, Coagulation tests, Bone marrow examination and Flow cytometry in addition to other tests. Our Clinical Pathologist also provides the expert opinion and review of challenging cases.

The Biochemistry Department is backed by a highly qualified team of Doctors and Technical staff. It is well equipped with latest state-of-art technology to perform not only routine biochemical tests for patient care but also wide variety of super –specialized investigations such as tumor and viral markers, therapeutic drug monitoring, Diabetic and Lipid profile, Liver and kidney function tests etc.

Immunochemistry testing is perform by using highly comprehensive, rapid and sensitive techniques for measuring protein analysis  including for antibodies and disease related proteins found in Rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, etc.

The Pap smear is a screening test to identify precancerous and cancerous cells early from the uterine cervix. It is an excellent method to prevent cervical cancer by periodically examining cells collected from the cervix. Early management of the lesion prevents further progression.

On site cellular assessment of FNA/EUS-FNA has significantly reduced the inadequacy rate of cytology as the cytotechnologist can prepare and examine smears to assess if there are sufficient cells for cytological evaluation.   

Routine specimens taken from many organs are reported by specialist and consultant histopathologists with vast experience. Special histochemical stains and Immuno-histochemistry are used to aid in the diagnosis. For intra-operative samples, frozen sections can be made to give the surgeon a result that helps to decide which operation to perform.

Drug monitoring for antibiotics, antiepileptic, cardiac drugs, analgesics, immune-suppressants, bronchodilators and psycho-active agents are available. Screening for drugs of abuse and Heavy metals are also performed.

These measurements are important to ensure safe therapy, diagnose toxins in children and to enable employers to check workers safety.

Microbiology testing is performed using automated analyzers to enhance accuracy and turnaround time. Services include: Bacterial cultures with antibiogram, Bactec Blood cultures, and Bacterial antigen detection.

These in conjunction with the clinical condition and the antibody studies enable the doctor to prescribe the correct therapy or report dangerous communicable diseases to the Public health authorities.

Laboratory and Infection control staff follow all infection control measures to safeguard the patients, themselves and the environment. The Hospital Infection Control Committee meets once a month to review the process including that of the laboratory. The Lab actively takes part in the reporting of communicable diseases to the preventive medicine department and provides recommendations when consulted by physicians.

Operating Room and Anesthesia

Operating Room and Anesthesia Department

Many patients fear surgery not because of the surgery itself but rather because of the anesthesia experience that they have to pass through. It is of course understandable that losing your consciousness and not being aware of what is going on is astressing experience for anybody. However anesthesia is an important part of your surgical experience as it renders you insensitive to pain.


At Lifecare our expert anesthesia team uses safe and effective methods of anesthesia that will ensure that your anesthesia experience is memorable and stress free and helps you to undergo the necessary procedure in calm and serene settings. They will ensure that you are suitable for anesthesia and will explain the process in an understandable manner.

The anesthetic or deep sedation or other pain relief may be given in a number of different areas of the hospital including the Operating theatre, Endoscopy, Dental, etc. In all cases, you will be cared for by experienced staff and monitored to ensure your safety and comfort.
