General Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgery
General Gastrointestinal Surgery is a surgery that serves as a treatment for diseases associated with your digestive tract. The digestive system is an intricate system that can be disrupted by disease, diet and emotional stress. While some digestive problems can be cured with medicine and lifestyle changes, others require surgery. Gastrointestinal surgery includes a variety of surgical techniques to diagnose and treat GI disorders. This type of surgery can be done on both the upper and lower GI tracts, depending on the problem or diseases.
A laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgical procedure, is an alternative to traditional “open” surgery in which a large incision must be made. Laparoscopic surgical procedures is a modern surgical technique which is performed by making small incisions of about 0.5cm-1.5cm in the abdomen or a single incision in the belly button (also known as key hole surgery or single incision laparoscopic surgery – SILS), through these incisions the surgeon inserts a laparoscope (a long, thin tube with a tiny camera attached to its tip) and surgical instruments in the abdomen to see inside the body and perform the surgery.
