Surgical Gastroenterology


The surgical treatment of all patients with diseases of the digestive tract comes under the purview of the Department of Surgical Gastroenterology.

High-end, high-precision surgery

MIOT International’s trained and expert surgeons perform open and advanced minimal-access surgery (laparoscopy or thoracoscopy). They also do revision surgeries on patients who have had complications from earlier operations.

MACGILD’s cutting-edge surgical infrastructure can be matched by very few centres in the country. For laparoscopic surgery, our surgeons use sophisticated HD-system optics, power systems such as harmonic scalpel, Enseal, Ligasure and APC, and high-precision operative imaging systems such as laparoscopic ultrasound, and more.


The equipment and instrumentation for open surgery is similarly high-end and includes intra-operative ultrasound and CUSA, in addition to dedicated and completely infection-free OTs and ICUs.

From ulcers to cancers

The Department’s specialists treat:

  • Upper GI conditions such as severe gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), cancer of the oesophagus and stomach, complicated duodenal or gastric ulcers, and upper GI bleeding that is not controlled by endoscopy.
  • All diseases of the colon and rectum, from polyps and rectal prolapse to uncontrolled ulcerative colitis and cancers of the colon and rectum.
  • Other abdominal conditions, such as treatment of various tumours of the abdominal cavity and gastrointestinal lining (the mesentery, mesocolon and retro-peritoneum).
