Surgical Gastroenterology


The department of Surgical Gastroenterology offers surgical management of diseases and conditions that affect the stomach, intestines and liver. We offer personalized surgical care to patients with common as well as complex gastrointestinal conditions by applying minimally invasive technologies wherever indicated. The expert gastroenterology surgeons at the department work collaboratively with the other departments and ensure precise surgical care to the patients. Laparoscopic surgeries is performed for many diseases like gall bladder stones, hernias and gastrointestinal cancer, which is safer, precise and less time consuming when compared to the traditional surgical procedure.
Various most modern technologies are being used in the department in order to make the surgeries more precise and of fewer complications so that the patient can return to normal life within a short period of time. Curative and palliative surgeries for Gastrointestinal malignancies and Bariatric Surgery for Morbid Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome are performed in the department.
