urgery for digestive diseases has witnessed several path breaking developments over the last 2 decades. With advancements in the available surgical technology, several existing procedures were refined and a number of innovative operations were introduced. To assimilate these developments, surgery for cancers and benign diseases of the digestive tract has evolved and we offer the best of it at the Regal Hospital.
GI surgery can improve the quality of life for someone who has not benefited from other treatments, like medicine or diet changes. Surgery to remove a tumour or diseased body part, or repair damage, can prove lifesaving.

Below are gastrointestinal conditions that may be treated with surgery:

  • Appendicitis: It is an inflammation of the appendix. Its treatment involves performing an appendectomy.

  • Colon cancer and other gastrointestinal cancers: Surgery is done to remove cancerous tumours in the digestive system. The surgeon may need to remove a part of the pancreas, liver, or intestine with cancerous tumour.

  • Diverticular disease: The diverticulum is a small pouch or pocket in the colon (large intestine). Sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain (diverticulitis). This is often managed without surgery. If someone has a lot of diverticula that often becomes inflamed, the doctor may recommend bowel resection surgery to remove that part of the intestine.

  • Hernia: A hernia occurs when a part of the body (like the intestine) pushes through a hole or weak spot in the wall of muscle or connective tissue that’s supposed to protect it (like the abdomen). It doesn’t come through the skin, but a bulge may be felt under the skin which is not supposed to be there. It can be painful. Gastrointestinal surgeons can repair the hole or weak spot through open or laparoscopic surgery.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease: The immune system attacks the intestines and causes pain and inflammation. This can lead to damage in the intestine. To treat it, the damaged parts are removed and the healthy parts are reconnected. This is called bowel resection.

  • Rectal prolapse: A slippage of the lower segment of the large intestine’s lowest section (rectum) outside the muscular aperture at the end of the digestive tract (anus) causes this condition.
