Gastroenterology

Our Gastroenterology department is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and management of digestive and hepatobiliary diseases with modern state of art equipment and advanced intensive care units for both adults and children. The human digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal tract and hepatobiliary system and is responsible for processing food and circulating the nutrition derived from it. The upper GI tract is comprised of the esophagus (food pipe), stomach, and duodenum, while the large and small intestines and the anus, together, form the lower GI tract. The hepatobiliary system is essential for digestion and it includes liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gall bladder.
