Gastroenterology is a medical specialty dealing with the study of the digestive system and its disorders. It is also the study of the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. It involves a detailed understanding of the normal action (physiology) of the gastrointestinal
organs including the movement of material through the stomach and intestine, the digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body, removal of waste from the system, and the function of the liver as a digestive organ. In a nut shell, all normal activity and disease of the digestive organs is part of the study of Gastroenterology.
The knowledge and technology in Gastroenterology has grown massively in the last two decades and has branched into various subspecialties like hepatology, pancreatology, functional bowel disorders with motility studies, therapeutic endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound. Gastro-intestinal services incorporate a joint medical and surgical approach for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal, liver and pancreatic disorders including cancer.
The department of Gastroenterology at Savera Hospital provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art service by means of the outpatient and inpatient facilities. The department is manned by esteemed and experienced gastroenterologists, skilled and compassionate paramedical staff, well-trained technicians and nurses.
