RCD department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is one of the few departments in the country which is well equipped for advanced surgical procedures with facilities of ICU care for the patients.
We also facilitate students and post graduate trainees in their education and making them efficient in clinical skills in addition to inculcating a professional attitude as per international standards.


Our aim is to provide quality treatment with low cost and better facilities as compared to public sector hospitals.
