Best Surgical Gastroenterologist in Suchitra Kompally, Hyderabad
Surgical gastroenterology is a subspecialty within the field of surgery that focuses on the surgical treatment of diseases of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, pancreas, and biliary tract. Surgical gastroenterologists use minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery, as well as traditional open surgical procedures to treat a range of conditions, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcer disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), colon and rectal cancer, and liver tumors.
- Chronic digestive problems such as acid reflux, abdominal pain, or chronic diarrhea
- Polyps or growths in the colon or rectum
- Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis
- Colorectal cancer or suspected colorectal cancer
- Liver disease or liver tumors
- Pancreatic disease or pancreatic tumors
- Gallbladder or biliary tract problems
- Obesity and related conditions that may require bariatric surgery
It’s important to seek medical attention for any persistent digestive symptoms or if you have a family history of digestive diseases. A surgical gastroenterologist can help diagnose and treat these conditions, and determine the best course of treatment, which may or may not involve surgery.
- Endoscopy: a procedure that uses a long, flexible tube with a camera on the end to visualize the inside of the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine.
- Colonoscopy: a similar procedure that examines the large intestine and rectum.
- Laparoscopy: a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to view and access the inside of the abdomen using small incisions and a camera.

- CT scan (computed tomography scan): an imaging test that uses X-rays and computer technology to create detailed cross-sectional images of the body.
