Surgical Gastroenterology

The Gastrointestinal system is the body’s food processing complex. This intricate system includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine — also called the colon — rectum, and anus.

It helps in converting the food we eat into energy required for our body to function. All essential components are absorbed and distributed in the body whereas the waste material and toxic substances are filtered and excreted out of the body. The functions of this system can be disrupted due to various disease processes, diet or stress resulting in symptoms that interfere with your daily life.

While some problems can be treated with medicine and lifestyle modifications, others require surgical intervention. We have separate departments dealing with each of the following: Upper Gastrointestinal, Lower Gastrointestinal, Hepatobiliary and Bottom Surgery. Moreover,  we have a board of medical and surgical experts who provide cutting edge treatment for Diabetes and Obesity.

Using minimal invasive techniques, surgeons at LIMA are pioneers in treating variety of disease conditions, including cancers.
