At Murugan Hospitals, the Department of Gastroenterology specialises in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine. Its services include diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, disease-management and clinical nutrition.
The human digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal tract and hepato-biliary system, and is responsible for processing food and circulating the nutrition derived from it. The upper GI tract is comprised of the oesophagus (food-pipe), stomach and duodenum, while the large and small intestines and the anus, together, form the lower GI tract.Surgical Gastroenterology
The surgical treatment of all patients with diseases of the digestive tract comes under the purview of the Department of Surgical Gastroenterology. High-end, high-precision surgery.
Trained and expert surgeons perform open and advanced minimal-access surgery (laparoscopy or thoracoscopy). They also do revision surgeries on patients who have had complications from earlier operations.
The equipment and instrumentation for open surgery is similarly high-end and includes intra-operative ultrasound and CUSA, in addition to dedicated and completely infection-free OTs and ICUs.
• Upper GI conditions such as severe gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), cancer of the oesophagus and stomach, complicated duodenal or gastric ulcers, and upper GI bleeding that is not controlled by endoscopy.
• All diseases of the colon and rectum, from polyps and rectal prolapse to uncontrolled ulcerative colitis and cancers of the colon and rectum.
• Other abdominal conditions, such as treatment of various tumours of the abdominal cavity and gastrointestinal lining (the mesentery, mesocolon and retro-peritoneum).
