Specialised clinics have been set-up for the treatment and management of reflux disease, constipation, jaundice, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, hernias, weight loss and colorectal cancers.

Spearheaded by leading experts in their field who are aided by cutting-edge technology, both the medical and surgical streams follow advanced treatment protocols and minimally invasive methods, thus improving patient outcome and experience and advancing the recovery process.

Our panel of gastroenterologists are internationally trained and they will guide you through every step from initial assessment to diagnosis and treatment. We personalize and customize treatment plan to suit every patient’s need. Expert guidance on diet and lifestyle changes is also provided to bring you back to good health and take preventive measures.

Dr Arulprakash S

Senior Consultant & Clinical Lead
Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology

The Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has been set up in response to the significant increase in the incidence of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. These diseases do not present as major irritants initially and are therefore, ignored or inadequately treated. However, GI and liver diseases can worsen over time and affect other vital organs of the body. We provide patients with the best treatment plan and help manage their condition thereafter.

Senior Consultant & Clinical Lead
Department of Minimal Access (GI) & Bariatric Surgery

The Department of Minimal Access (GI) and Bariatric Surgery offers laparoscopic surgery for conditions of the upper GI, lower GI, proctology, breast and thyroid as the gold standard of care. Our team of specialists believe in extending empathetic care and this has laid the foundation of this department that is aimed at comprehensive excellence, not only in terms of diagnosis or treatment but also in the overall care leading to the transformation of healthy individuals.
