Introduction: surgical site infections are quiet common in our country which increases morbidity, mortality and treatment cost. Isolating the micro-organisms associated with these infections is important so that effective management can be done. Aims And Objectives: To know the microbiological profile of surgical site infections. Material and Methods: Total of 500 patients underwent elective abdominal surgeries with class I and class II operative wounds were included in this study. Swab from the surgical wound was sent for microbiological examination. Results: 6% of total samples were culture positive and pseudomonas aeruginosa was the most common organism isolated. Conclusion: pseudomonas aeruginosa was the most common organism isolated from infected surgical sites.
