Gastro Treatment Facilities

Diagnostic Procedures

Endoscopy: This includes procedures like upper endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD) and colonoscopy. These procedures involve the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera into the digestive tract to visualize and examine the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon.
Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP): Used to diagnose and treat conditions of the bile ducts and pancreas.
Capsule Endoscopy: A small capsule with a camera is swallowed to capture images of the small intestine.
Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS): Combines endoscopy and ultrasound to visualize and evaluate the digestive tract and adjacent organs.

Treatment and Intervention

Polypectomy and Biopsy: Removal of polyps or tissue samples for further examination.
Dilation: Widening of narrowed areas in the esophagus, stomach, or intestines.
Stent Placement: Insertion of a stent to keep a narrowed or blocked area open.
Hemostasis: Management of bleeding from ulcers or other sources in the digestive tract.

Medical Management

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) Management: Treatment of acid reflux and heartburn.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Management: Managing conditions like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Management: Addressing symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and altered bowel habits.
Liver Disease Management: Treating conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fatty liver disease.
Pancreatic Disease Management: Managing pancreatitis and other pancreatic disorders.

Liver Testing

Liver Function Testing: Evaluation of liver function through blood tests.
FibroScan: Non-invasive test to assess liver fibrosis.
Liver Biopsy: Removal of a small piece of liver tissue for analysis.

In addition to gastrointestinal malignancies, gallstones, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, hernias, pancreatitis, and liver illnesses, the department also treats a wide range of other conditions.

The Gastro Surgery Department conducts a variety of surgical operations, including laparoscopic liver, pancreatic, esophageal, and hernia repairs, colectomies (colon resections), and gallbladder removals. To ease patient suffering and shorten recovery times, these procedures are frequently minimally invasive.

Recovery time varies depending on the type of surgery performed, the patient’s overall health, and the complexity of the condition. Minimally invasive procedures often allow for a quicker recovery, with patients returning to normal activities within a few weeks in many cases.

Like every surgery, gastro surgery entails some risks, such as infection, haemorrhage, unfavourable anaesthesia reactions, and GI-specific problems. The medical staff takes precautions to reduce these dangers, and patients are constantly watched while they recuperate.

Small incisions are made to insert specialised surgical instruments and a camera during minimally invasive surgery, sometimes referred to as laparoscopic or keyhole surgery. Compared to open surgery, this method typically leads to shorter hospital stays, less scarring, and quicker recovery.
