Gastroenterology Treatments and Procedures
From prevention and early diagnosis to recovery and rehabilitation, the experts at the Department of Gastroenterology are committed to provide progressive and comprehensive care to the patients suffering from gastrointestinal problems.
Upper GI Endoscopy
This is a diagnostic procedure where an endoscope is inserted through the mouth so that the upper part of the gastro-intestinal tract to the beginning of the small intestine could be visualized.
Colonoscopy (including Polyps removal surgery)
Colonoscopy is a diagnostic endoscopic procedure that helps visualize the rectum, colon, and the tail end of the small intestine. In case of abnormalities, our team develops a treatment strategy that’s best suited for the patient.
ERCP (Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography)
ERCP is a minimally invasive procedure using both endoscopic and X-Ray technologies to diagnose and treat diseases affecting the bile and pancreatic ducts Biliary stent placement is an interventional procedure where a thin, hollow tube is placed in the bile duct to hold it open, allowing smooth flow of the bile and pancreatic juices.
The surgical removal of appendix is offered by our surgeons for patients suffering from appendicitis.
A cut or incision about 2 to 4 inches long is made in the lower right-hand side of your belly or abdomen. The appendix is taken out through the incision.
This method is less invasive. That means it’s done without a large incision. Instead, from 1 to 3 tiny cuts are made. A long, thin tube called a laparoscope is put into one of the incisions. It has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The surgeon looks at a TV monitor to see inside your abdomen and guide the tools. The appendix is removed through one of the incisions.
Hernia Repair (Inguinal, Umbilical and Incisional)
The team of surgeons at Kauvery Hospital offers all three types of hernia surgery to effectively relieve patients suffering from hernia where the damaged area is repaired and strengthened through surgery.
A procedure used to check whether there are any obstructions, like gall stones, affecting the flow of bile from the bile duct to the intestine.
Duodenal ulcer perforation closure
Our surgeons provide surgical options to treat ulcer perforations. The damaged area is patched up with conveniently taken adipose tissue layer from other parts. This process uses absorbable sutures so that the body can absorb it naturally over time.
Our surgeons provide splenectomy services where the spleen is surgically removed.
Pancreatic Necrosectomy and Pseudocyst Operations
Pancreatic Necrosis is a permanent condition where part of the pancreas dies because of loss of blood supply. Our surgeons perform surgery to remove all the areas suffering from necrosis and infection.
Pancreatic Pseudocysts often occurs in patients suffering from Pancreatic Necrosis. It’s a fluid filled sac in the abdomen originating from pancreas. We offer medical and surgical treatment options according to the severity of the pseudocyst.
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (Gall stones)
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a medical procedure in which the gallbladder is surgically removed. The surgeon uses the advanced laparoscopic surgical methods to carry out the surgery.
Laparoscopic Gastrectomy involves the surgical removal of whole or parts of your stomach. In this advanced and minimally invasive surgical procedure, the whole surgery is performed using laparoscopic technique.
Laparoscopic and Thoracoscopic Esophagectomy
Laparoscopic and Thoracoscopic Esophagectomy is a highly advanced and complex surgical procedure in which whole or parts of the Esophagus is removed and reconstructed using parts from another organ—most often, the stomach—through laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopic Colectomy / Anterior Resection / AP Resection
Laparoscopic Colectomy is a medical procedure where whole or parts of the colon is removed or repaired through the minimally invasive laparoscopic technique.
Laparoscopic Anterior Resection is a procedure where whole or part of the rectum is removed laparoscopically by the surgeon.
AP Resection Surgery is performed to surgically remove the ending parts of the large intestine including the sigmoid colon, rectum, and the anus through laparoscopy.
Laparoscopic Distal Pancreatectomy
Using the minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure, the surgeon removes benign or malignant tumors that appear in the pancreas.
Laparoscopic Whipple’s Procedure
In this complicated surgical procedure, the upper part of the pancreas, the beginning of the small intestine, the gall bladder, and the bile ducts are surgically removed laparoscopically and then the remaining organs are reconnected to allow normal digestion.
In this medical procedure, our experienced surgeons remove whole, or parts of the liver to help treat conditions that severely affect the normal functioning of the liver.
Obesity Surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass)
We offer all types of bariatric surgeries to effectively help maintain the weight goals of the patient.
A surgical option where the Whipple’s procedure is done through open surgery.
