Gastrointestinal surgery is a procedure for diseases of the areas of the body that are involved in digestion. This includes the esophagus, liver, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum. It involves the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas as well. Surgery can be used to remove cancerous or non-cancer growth or damaged parts of the body, such as the intestine.
Below are gastrointestinal disorders that can be treated with surgery:
Appendicitis, Colon cancers and other stomach cancers, Diverticular illness, Disease of the gallbladder, Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatal hernia, Inflammatory intestinal disorder, Rectoral prolapse, and Loss of weight
A surgical technique called an endoscopy is used to screen and diagnose conditions in the digestive system. The doctor puts a long, thin tube with a tiny camera in the body to see inside.
