Medical & Surgical Gastroenterology

Medical & Surgical Gastroenterology

The department does all upper GI procedures including variceal bleed management, polypectomy, bleeding ulcer manage-ment, esophageal malignancy stenting etc.

All lower GI procedures like colonoscopy, polypectomy, bleed management are done with utmost precision. The introduction of ERCP procedures for CBD stones and biliary and pancreatic malignancies has been a land mark in the progress of the department.

The department has the only actively running liver clinic in Trivandrum district, providing education and care to the most needy liver disease patients. The department now caters to around 12,000 – 15,000 outpatients, around 500 inpati-ents and 3000 endoscopic procedures every year.

We are planning for the introduction of latest amenities in gastroenterology like APC, Endoscopic ultrasound etc in the near future.

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is nothing but the common term collectively used for many types of weight-loss surgeries. These surgeries make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight. They either limit the amount of food you can intake or reduce your ability to absorb nutrition and in some cases, both. Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem. It's a health hazard. This is because obesity has been linked to several serious medical conditions.
