Surgical Gastroenterology

About the Department

At MSCC, the department of Surgical Gastroenterology provides state-of-the-art care for patients with gastrointestinal cancers. Our department has taken on the challenge of providing advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques to patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Patients can get ontologically sound surgeries with minimal access technique, thus ensuring faster recovery & quick return to normal life.

We are one of the few departments that offer a multimodality approach to liver cancer. We also conduct complex liver surgeries with intraoperative ultrasound guidance, thus making these procedures safer with better outcomes. Patients with liver cancer and chronic liver disease are also given the option of liver transplantation.

The Department of Surgical Gastroenterology is staffed with highly specialised surgeons with expertise in liver and gastrointestinal surgeries. The department has the longest running weight loss surgery programme in the state. The department routinely performs laparoscopic cholecystectomy, splenectomy, nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, hysterectomy and hernioplasty.
