Conditions we treat

Pancreatitis

The inflammation of the pancreas is known as pancreatitis. It can appear as both an acute and progressive disease. It is characterised by sharp abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Treatment alternatives range from pain management, medicinal therapy and surgical interventions.

Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)

GERD is a condition in which there is frequent acid reflux back into the oesophagus causing heartburn, irritation and pain. If left untreated, GERD can lead to narrowing or sores of the oesophagus. It is treated through lifestyle changes, medication and surgical procedures.

Gallbladder and biliary tract disease

The biliary tract includes the gallbladder and bile ducts that produce and store bile (digestive fluid). Common conditions affecting the biliary tract include gallstones, cholecystitis and tumours. Treatment protocols depend upon the type of condition and the overall health of the patient.

Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is a progressive condition in which scar tissues replaces the healthy tissues in the liver which can lead to liver failure. Early detection can help in timely treatment and better prognosis. Treatment includes lifestyle changes and medication to reverse scar tissue growth.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease is a group of conditions causing chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. These include ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. A combination of medicinal treatment, lifestyle remedies and surgical interventions may be offered to treat IBD.

Gastrointestinal cancer

Gastrointestinal cancers are the ones that affect orangs in the GI tract. These include cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus. High-precision multidisciplinary care is offered based on the type, site and stage of cancer.

Tests and procedures we offer

Medicinal treatment

Medicinal therapy is usually the first line of treatment for GI conditions. Our gastroenterologists aim to alleviate your symptoms while addressing the root cause of the condition through medicines. We also offer personalised guidance on lifestyle modifications for best outcomes.

Endoscopic ultrasound

Endoscopic ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure to visualise and examine the digestive tract and nearby organs like the pancreas and liver. Our experts offer precise and safe endoscopic ultrasound to better understand your condition and offer appropriate treatments.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is an endoscopic procedure that allows the doctor to view the insides of the colon. This test is done to detect abnormalities in the large intestine and rectum. We provide advanced colonoscopic screening for a thorough intestinal investigation.

ERCP

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) allows gastroenterologists to diagnose and treat conditions in the liver, gallbladder, pancreas and bile ducts. This technique involves a combination of endoscopy and X-rays. We offer precision-driven ERCP procedures for a detailed diagnosis and treatment.
