There are four operation theatres in this complex which can support eight operations simultaneously. The purpose of a Modular OT is to reduce the incidence of infection to the minimum level, sources said.
Modular OTs will enable the health staff to conduct x-ray and other imaging during the operation. This gives a quick analysis of the patients and provides imagery of the internal organs.
