The Department of Surgery was started in the K.E.M. Hospital in 1967. Dr.P.K.Bharucha was Head of the Department. A little later, Dr. Subhash Patki joined in the capacity of consultant surgeon. Being a very versatile and capable surgeon, Dr.Bharucha handled every branch of surgery. He was at ease in managing patients in general surgery, orthopedics, lung diseases, mitral valve, pediatrics and oncosurgery.


As the subspecialties started developing, he had the foresight to invite specialists from other disciplines of surgery. This began around 1971. Dr. Bharucha set the department on the path of dedication, honest practice, good record keeping and patient care of the highest order. After he relinquished charge in the Department of Surgery, Dr. Subhash Patki took over from him till November 2000 when he had to stop working due to failing health. Currently Dr. M.Y.Bapaye is the Director of Surgery. The Department of Surgery boasts of having on the staff specialists providing service in every specialty of surgery.

Teaching and academic activities are an integral part of the life of our consultants. Being attached to the B.J. Medical College, hundreds of undergraduate students have been taught at the KEM Hospital. The Department of Surgery is recognized for post-graduate training of MS, DNB & FCPS candidates. Many of these have been encouraged to go abroad for further training.


The training of residents' doctors working towards their post graduate degrees consists of seminars, case discussions and operative techniques. The residents are taught operative skills by way of workshops where animal gut is used to teach suturing technique. Residents perform operations always under the supervision of a consultant surgeon. Many Clinical Research projects are being conducted and KEM Consultants are gaining recognition at National and International levels.
