Gastrointestinal surgery involves the examination and treatment of various surgical diseases of the digestive tract from the esophagus to the rectum as well as diseases of the liver, pancreas and biliary ducts. Diseases of certain organs which are not part of the digestive tract, such as spleen diseases or hernias of the abdominal wall, are treated as well.
The field of gastrointestinal surgery also includes surgical treatment of several gastrointestinal cancers, such as cancer of the stomach, pancreas or colon and non-surgical treatment of other diseases, such as pancreatitis.
Some diseases of the digestive tract, such as reflux disease, gastric ulceration and inflammatory bowel disease, are treated non-surgically by gastrointestinal surgeons and internal medicine gastroenterologists, often in collaboration.
Our field of specialization involves some of the most demanding gastrointestinal surgeries, such as major cancer surgeries, surgical treatment and intensive care of severe pancreatitis and robotic surgery procedures of the abdominal cavity.
We also provide other treatments associated with gastrointestinal surgery. More information is available at our Customer Service.
