Gastroenterology


The Department of Gastroenterology specialises in treatment of all Gastro-intestinal and Liver conditions. We have a comprehensive Gastrointestinal and Liver care facility complemented with full-fledged medical ICU.

Gastroenterology is the treatment and care of the entire human digestive tract. The functioning of organs like oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver and the entire digestive tract as a whole is taken care of by gastroenterologists.

As we age and our dietary habits get unhealthier, it becomes more important to have regular gastro care. Lifestyle habits like excessive drinking or eating, binging on unhealthy food, irregular meal timings are some of the major concerns of gastroenterology, apart from infectious diseases that harm the digestive process. These factors can cause a number of health concerns by affecting one or more parts of the digestive system. A well-equipped department of gastroenterology addresses all these different health issues with the help of a highly specialized team of doctors and nurses and the latest medical technology like 4D Ultrasound, 24×7 CT Scan facility and round-the-clock laboratory services.

FAQ's


A gastroenterologist is tasked with studying, managing and treating disorders involving the gastrointestinal tract. They diagnose potential problems that stand in the way of your body’s ability to comfortably and easily digest food, move it through the body and get rid of waste.

An endoscopy is a procedure where organs inside your body are looked at using an instrument called an endoscope. An endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube that has a light and camera at one end. Images of the inside of your body are shown on a television screen.

Colonoscopy or coloscopy is the endoscopic examination of the large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel with a CCD camera or a fiber optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the ring of muscle between your esophagus and your stomach. This ring is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). If you have it, you may get heartburn or acid indigestion.

Cirrhosis is a late-stage result of liver disease and its complications. You may not have symptoms in the beginning stages of the disease. Common causes include alcohol abuse, hepatitis and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Treatment depends on the cause of cirrhosis and how much damage exists. Liver transplantation may be an option if your liver is failing.

Obstructive jaundice is a condition in which there is blockage of the flow of bile out of the liver. This results in redirection of excess bile and its by-products into the blood, and bile excretion from the body is incomplete. Bile contains many by-products, one of which is bilirubin, a pigment derived from dead red blood cells. Bilirubin is yellow, and this gives the characteristic yellow appearance of jaundice in the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes.
