Advanced Gastroenterology Care at Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine concerned with the digestive system and its disorders. Ailments affecting the gastrointestinal tract namely oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum are the focus of this speciality. A range of diseases may affect the digestive system - common conditions are acid reflux, peptic ulcers, haemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome; acute and chronic conditions are Barrett’s oesophagus, ulcerative colitis, stomach cancer.
