About Gastrointestinal Surgery
The gastrointestinal tract is the passageway of digestive organs that runs from your mouth to the rectum. The GI tract includes the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. Gastrointestinal surgery is the branch of medical science that specialises in the surgical management of diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract. This speciality also focuses on the treatment of disorders affecting other digestive organs including the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.

Gastrointestinal surgeries we offer
Piles surgeryPiles are enlarged blood vessels that occur around or inside the anus. They present as small discoloured lumps and become more common with age. Surgical treatment includes procedures like stapling, artery ligation and advanced LASER assisted treatment that offers benefits of no cuts, no scars and no recurrence.
Hernia surgeryA hernia is the protrusion of any internal organ or another body part through the weakened muscle wall or tissue containing it. If left untreated, hernias can cause life-threatening complications. Hernias are repaired through open and laparoscopic surgeries lasting nearly 45 minutes.
Bariatric surgeryFor individuals struggling with obesity and complications arising from being overweight, the CK Birla Hospital offers a wide range of bariatric surgery services. Bariatric (weight loss) surgery includes various procedures such as gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.
Gallstone removal surgeryGallstones are hardened stone-like objects that develop and collect in the gallbladder. Gallstones develop in varying sizes and hence may affect every patient differently. Surgical interventions are offered to remove gallstones or, in some cases, the gallbladder through minimal access manner.

Common procedures include gastro-oesophageal surgeries, hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeries, appendectomies among others.

One of our patients talks about her treatment journey of gallbladder stone removal
I visited the CK Birla Hospital for a TMJ surgery. I really liked the approach of Dr Sanchiata Kohli. She is a brilliant surgeon. She helped me understand everything about my condition and the ways to correct it. She also counselled me when I told her about my worries and concerns. I am very happy with the overall experience. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
The CK Birla Hospital is one of the leading hospitals in Gurgaon. My father was admitted here in ICU after he had a septic shock. It was a very worrying time for me and my family. But the support that we received from the hospital staff was beyond amazing. The doctors did a great job in treating my father at such a critical stage. I am very thankful to all of them for their care and efforts. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
