Upper Gastrointestinal and Obesity Surgery

Upper gastrointestinal surgical procedures help treat a range of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. Commonly performed surgeries include hernia repair, cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), cancer surgery, and fundoplication (to treat oesophageal reflux in patients who have persistent problems despite adequate medical treatment).

Obesity surgery (bariatric surgery ) in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise plan is a procedure that helps patients lose weight and improve obesity-related medical conditions like diabetes mellitus, hypertension and obstructive sleep apnea. The types of obesity surgery available include laparoscopic gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
