Surgical Gastroenterology

Surgical Gastroenterology is a new specialty, broadly encompasses the surgery of both the upper gastrointestinal tract and lower GI tract starting from the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, rectum, liver and the pancreas. This specialty became a necessity with rapid progress in diagnostic and interventional Gastroenterology requiring surgeons specially trained in operating the gastro-intestinal tract. Surgical technology has been refined and treatment of benign and cancerous diseases of the digestive tract has evolved alongside it as a super specialty. Rapid advances in the field of surgery namely “Minimal access surgery” or “Key hole surgery” and organ transplantation are very closely associated with abdominal surgery further widening the horizons of surgical Gastroenterology. The department offers wide variety of surgical procedures for all the diseases related to gastrointestinal, liver and pancreas. The department consists of highly qualified and experienced staff members. The department is equipped with state of the art equipment to compliment the experienced staff to offer high class service to our patients.
