Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgeons are specialists who are skilled in performing advanced and complex surgeries of the digestive system by Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) techniques like laparoscopy and robotic techniques.


What are the advantages of minimal access techniques like laparoscopic & endoscopic surgery?

  1. Less post–operative pain
  2. Shortened hospital stay
  3. Faster return to regular diet
  4. Quicker return to normal activity
  5. Less wound infections

What We Treat

(A) Gastrointestinal Surgeries:

Over the years the concepts and fundamentals of performing these surgeries and their indications have evolved based on extensive research happening in the field.

Newer modalities of performing these surgeries with better results in a more precise manner have evolved.

Modalities like the laparoscopic approach, robotic approach, and endoscopic approach have made it possible to perform the same surgeries with lesser morbidity of big cuts & scars over the abdomen and have improved outcomes of surgeries too.


(B) Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery:

Aadicura hospital has one of the most experienced teams for obesity management. We have a team of endocrinologists, a nutritionist, bariatric surgeon, bariatric endoscopist, bariatric anesthetist, for comprehensive obesity management.

The team has been a pioneer in bariatric surgery in the region and has wide experience in managing obesity in patients.


(C) Abdominal Hernia:

A hernia is a bulging in the abdominal wall.

These are of the following types:

  1. Inguinal Hernia
  2. Umbilical Hernia
  3. Incisional Hernia

We at Aadicura perform all these surgeries laparoscopically, as well as we perform the latest abdominal wall reconstruction procedures which are performed at very few centers in the country.

Patients having repeated issues related to indigestion and regurgitation (GERD) and patients developing abnormal collections in the abdomen are also managed laparoscopically here.


Who needs a Gastrosurgeon consultation?

Patients suffering from acute abdominal problems:

  1. Pain in abdomen
  2. Bloating
  3. Vomiting
  4. Abdominal bulging or swelling
  5. Heaviness of abdomen
  6. Diagnosed abdominal cancers

Patients having repeated occurrences of abdominal pain, jaundice, and other abdominal problems.

Patients diagnosed with diseases like cancers of liver, pancreas, bile-duct or intestines, or having any other disease of liver, pancreas, spleen, bile ducts, retroperitoneal tissue, or intestines.
