About Surgical Gastroenterology
Surgical gastroenterology is the specialized branch of surgery which deals with the diseases of the digestive tract requiring operative intervention. We perform open and laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgeries for both benign and malignant (digestive tract cancers) conditions. Advanced laparoscopic procedures and minimally invasive interventions for hepatobiliary and luminal diseases are in our armamentarium which are being utilized in appropriate conditions. The unit also aims to provide comprehensive hepatobiliary services with the surgeries on liver, pancreas, gall bladder and the biliary tract.
The future vision is that we strive to set up a liver transplantation program and also develop the specialty with ethical and scientific practice.
