Centre of Gastroenterology
Our gastroenterology department addresses diseases of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. The functioning of the entire digestive system from the passage of food through the digestive canal to the physiological processes of food digestion, absorption and elimination comes under the purview of this specialty. It also includes the medical and surgical treatment of diseases such as colon polyps, gastrointestinal cancer, jaundice, cirrhosis of the liver, gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn), peptic ulcer disease, colitis, gallbladder, and biliary tract disease, nutritional problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and pancreatitis. Our department, staffed by skilled gastroenterologists, competent medical officers and dutiful technicians who collaborate with a patient-centric approach and possess equipment backed by advanced intensive care units, offers holistic services to handle disorders of the digestive and hepatobiliary systems. We offer many processes such as endoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, colonoscopy, ileocolonoscopic, sigmoidoscopy, endoscopic variceal band ligation, stricture dilatation, argon plasma coagulation for upper gastrointestinal bleeding, hemoclip application, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, and polypectomy.
