Our team of highly skilled surgeons and healthcare professionals is committed to providing comprehensive care to patients with gastrointestinal ailments.
The Surgical Gastroenterology Department plays a vital role in a hospital as it focuses on surgical interventions for conditions that affect the gastrointestinal tract, including the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine, and colon. Our department utilizes advanced surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technology to offer effective and personalized treatment options for various ailments.
At SIDS Surgical Gastroenterology Department, we treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): Our surgeons specialize in procedures such as fundoplication and LINX device placement to manage GERD, a condition characterized by the reflux of stomach acid into the oesophagus.
- Gallbladder Diseases: We perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a minimally invasive surgery, to treat conditions such as gallstones, gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis), and gallbladder polyps.
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Surgical interventions such as bowel resection and strictureplasty may be recommended for patients with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, the two main types of IBD.
