Our team of Gastroenterologists provide high end services in preventing, diagnosing and treating digestive tract and liver disorders majorly involving pancreas, liver, gallbladder, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
Equipped with latest diagnostic capabilities and minimally invasive techniques, we perform wide spectrum of procedures including:
GASTROENTEROLOGY surgery is a type of surgery that treats problems of the digestive system. The esophagus (ee-of-uh-guys), stomach, small intestine, big intestine, and rectum are included. The liver, gallbladder, and pancreas are also included.
A malignant or noncancerous growth or a damaged body section, such as the intestine, may be removed through surgery.
Appendicitis. It may be necessary to remove the appendix if it becomes infected and inflamed (appendectomy).
Colon cancer and other GASTROENTEROLOGY cancers.
Surgery is performed to remove cancerous tumors in the digestive system and cancerous sections of the digestive system. A surgeon, for example, may remove a tumor as well as a portion of the pancreas, liver, or intestine if the tumor is cancerous.
Gallbladder disease. When the gallbladder has a condition, such as gallstones, the gallbladder might be removed. A cholecystectomy is a procedure that removes the gallbladder .
Hernia. When a body component (such as the intestine) passes through a hole or weak area in the muscle or connective tissue wall designed to protect it, a hernia occurs (like the abdomen). Although it does not pass through the skin, a protrusion under the skin that is not intended to be there may be felt. It can also be excruciatingly uncomfortable. GASTROENTEROLOGY surgeons can repair the hole or weak region.
weight loss. Obesity can be treated with several types of bariatric surgery (such as gastric bypass). A bariatric surgery specialist usually performs this surgery.
Endoscopy is a surgical treatment that is used to screen and diagnose digestive system issues.
Any surgery carries several hazards, including:
Infections can enter the body at any time when it is opened up. During surgery, surgeons take great care to keep things sterile and clean, but the condition is always possible.
Depending on the procedure, inflammation and pain may occur during recovery.
Blood clots and bleeding
Cuts following surgery can sometimes bleed for a long time, delaying recovery. Sometimes a blood clot forms where the surgery was performed, blocking a vital blood vessel to the lungs, heart, or brain.
Damage to a different part of the body.
During surgery, a healthy bodily part can be destroyed by accident.
The body’s reaction to anesthesia.
Some people have an adverse reaction to anesthesia and experience nausea and vomiting.
What are the advantages?
The removal of a tumor or a damaged body part and the healing of damaged can save a person’s life. Surgery can also enhance a person’s quality of life if other therapies, such as pharmaceutical or dietary modifications, have failed to help.
Colonoscopy is a modest surgical treatment with significant advantages: it can detect colon cancer early enough to be cured. It’s critical to receive the colon cancer screening that’s suggested.
A scalpel (a small knife) and other equipment are cut into the body for most surgeries. To remove growths in the colon, a scope — a narrow tube with a camera and small surgery equipment — is used.
Open surgery or minimally invasive surgery are both methods of cutting into the body.
The surgeon makes a single significant cut to open up the body in open surgery.
Your doctor will discuss any necessary follow-up therapy or care with you and devise a treatment plan specifically for you.
