Gastric diseases and conditions we treat and procedure we perform

Surgical treatment of diseases associated with the gall bladder, liver, pancreas, hepato-biliary system, oesophagus, stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract is performed by our team of general surgeons who have specialized in upper gastrointestinal surgery. However not all patients would require surgery. We begin with initial investigations and recommend medicines/drugs to alleviate the condition.
