    Treatments we provide in Gastroenterology

    1. Appendicitis – It could be necessary to remove the appendix if it becomes infected and inflamed (appendectomy).
    2. Gastrointestinal malignancies like colon cancer – Surgery is used to remove cancerous tumours from the digestive system as well as cancerous sections of the digestive system. A surgeon might, for instance, remove a tumour together with a portion of a pancreas, liver, or intestine that has cancer.
    3. Cholecystectomy – It is possible to remove the gallbladder when there is a problem, typically gallstones.
    4. A fundoplication strengthens the sphincter that keeps acid out by wrapping the top of the stomach around the lower part of the oesophagus after the surgeon has repaired any hernias. Patients with GERD and hernias receive this treatment.
    5. Antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors, and antacids are just a few of the drugs that can be used to treat gastroenterological problems.

    Tips for healthy digestive system

    1. Eat a balanced diet: Eat a diet that is rich in fibre, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods help keep the digestive system regular and healthy.
    2. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and other fluids to keep the digestive system hydrated and to help move waste through the body.
    3. Exercise regularly: Exercise helps to promote regular bowel movements and can also help reduce stress, which can have a negative impact on digestive health.
    4. Manage stress: Stress can negatively affect the digestive system, so it’s important to manage stress through techniques such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises.
    5. Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Both smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively impact the digestive system, so it’s important to avoid or limit these habits.
    6. Get enough sleep: Sleep is important for overall health, including digestive health. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
    7. Practice good hygiene: Wash your hands regularly, especially before eating or preparing food, to avoid the spread of harmful bacteria that can cause digestive problems.
    8. Visit your doctor regularly: Regular check-ups with your doctor can help identify and address any digestive issues early on.


    During a diagnostic laparoscopy, your abdominal (belly) and pelvis are viewed with a tiny video camera. Usually, it is done to check for issues or to treat a condition.

    Diseases of the digestive system’s organs are treated by gastrointestinal surgery. The oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, pancreas, liver, and gallbladder are included in this.

    Surgery may be done to remove a tumour, whether cancerous or not, or to repair a damaged body part, such the intestine. It can also be applied to fix issues like hernias (a hole or weak spot in the wall of the abdomen). Digestive system issues are screened for and diagnosed via minor surgical procedures.

    You may need to contact a gastroenterologist if you experience irregular bowel movements, rectal bleeding, recurrent heartburn, abdominal pain or bloating, peptic ulcers, jaundice, dysphagia, unexplained weight loss, or you turn 45.

    You will need to avoid eating at least 6 hours before to the gastroscopy on the day of the procedure. You might be able to take a few water sips. You’ll receive more information about what you consumed that day in your letter. The specifics of the medications you take should be brought with you.
