About Digestive Diseases

The Department of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy features state-of-the-art facilities for the management of a wide variety of gastrointestinal related diseases and their complications, liver disorders and many other digestive problems. We perform complex and routine gastroenterology procedures and offer specialized services using new techniques and equipment to diagnose and treat diseases of the digestive system. Our medical team is committed to setting the standard for excellence in patient care.

We also offer a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) surgical procedures including complex operations. Laparoscopic surgery is the standard procedure for many pathologies. Standard oncological procedures and protocols are followed in case of GI Cancers. Our strong focus is on the surgical treatment of cancers of the stomach, pancreas and liver. Advanced liver as well pancreatic cancers are often dealt with. Newer technologies are being used to deal with Colorectal cancers..Procedures such as STARR & Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy are done routinely along with ventral rectopexy. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, CBD Exploration, Laparoscopic surgery for Achalasia and Laparoscopic Fundoplication for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is offered routinely. Ventral Hernia, Incisional Hernia as well as Inguinal Hernia are repaired laparoscopically.
