Gastroenterology Treatment in Bangalore

Gastrointestinal illness is a branch of medicine that treats diseases and conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal tract begins in the esophagus and extends to the stomach, small intestine, and rectum, which is mainly composed of the large intestine, the bowel being the main constituents.

Gastrointestinal diseases are those that affect the gastrointestinal tract. This tract includes organs from the mouth to the Anus.

The section of Gastrointestinal and HPB surgery at Cytecare Hospital is a center of excellence. We deal with advanced cancers of Esophagus, Stomach, Intestines, Liver, Gallbladder and Pancreas. We also deal with common gastrointestinal problems such as gallbladder stones, hernia, obesity (Bariatric) procedures, fatty liver, liver cirrhosis and emergencies like gastrointestinal bleeding, appendicitis and bowel obstruction or perforation.
