Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders. Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which include the organs from mouth into anus, along the alimentary canal, are the focus of this specialty. Physicians practicing in this field are called gastroenterologists. They have usually completed about eight years of pre-medical and medical education, a year-long internship (if this is not a part of the residency), three years of an internal medicine residency, and three years in the gastroenterology fellowship.
The digestive system is an intricate system that can be disrupted by disease, diet, external environment and emotional stress. While some digestive problems can be remedied with medicine and lifestyle changes, others require surgery, often by specialists in their field.
We, as a team of dedicated Doctors with a wealth of experience, aim to provide comprehensive Medical & surgical care for all Gastro-intestinal diseases.
Hepato-Pancreato-biliary Surgery is another sub speciality which requires additional expertise and training. Our team has highly experienced surgeons who are well versed in the care of all aspects of this complex field.
