Gastrointestinal surgery is a super specialty branch of surgery concerned with the treatment of common and complex ailments of the digestive system. The specialty focuses on diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract and related organs namely oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai Gastrointestinal Surgery Department offers comprehensive surgical care across the spectrum of diseases affecting the digestive system. The Centre provides access to state-of-the-art diagnostics, enabling our team to design customized therapy options based on the patient’s clinical condition.
Our surgeons are skilled in performing a range of surgical interventions including modern key-hole (minimally invasive laparoscopic and endoscopic) procedures (such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy, abdominoperineal resection), technologically advanced robot-assisted surgeries (such as splenectomy, total proctocolectomy with pouch anal anastomosis) other than conventional open surgeries. We deliver expert care while utilizing a collaborative approach for the complete treatment of tumors affecting the digestive system, liver cancer and liver transplantation.
The department’s constant endeavour is to render a patient-friendly ecosystem with shorter recovery time and faster return to the daily routine. We are leading in the city for best surgical outcomes, at par with international standards.
