Gastrointestinal Surgery

Not all patients seen by an upper gastrointestinal surgeon will necessarily need an operation. A laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgical procedure, is an alternative to traditional "open" surgery in which a large incision must be made. These small incisions create a passageway for special surgical instruments and a laparoscope. Surgery may be done in patients with continued lower GI bleeding but localization of the bleeding site is very important. If the bleeding site cannot be localized, subtotal colectomy is recommended the digestive system is an intricate system that can be disrupted by disease, diet and emotional stress. While some digestive problems can be remedied with medicine and lifestyle changes, others require surgery.

Gastrointestinal surgery covers two specialties of general surgery (upper gastrointestinal surgery and colorectal surgery. Gastrointestinal ultrasound provides more detailed images of the digestive system than other imaging studies. It allows physicians to examine your esophageal and stomach linings, as well as your upper and lower digestive tract. The surgical treatment of diseases of the gall bladder, liver and pancreas (hepatobiliary system) and oesophagus, stomach and small bowel (upper gastrointestinal tract) is performed under the care of the general surgeon who has a specialist interest in upper gastrointestinal surgery. The conditions treated are many and varied; they often require the assistance of physicians (gastroenterologists) and specialist nurses (cancer care and inflammatory bowel disease).
