Surgical Gastroenterology

Surgical Gastroenterology (SGE), also known as Gastrointestinal Surgery (GI Surgery), stands as a highly evolved and specialized field dedicated to addressing surgical issues within the digestive system. Encompassing a spectrum of organs such as the Esophagus, Stomach, Small Intestine, Large Intestine, Rectum, Anal Canal, Liver, Pancreas, Gall Bladder, and Bile Duct, SGE has emerged as a distinct discipline resulting from the exponential growth of knowledge in gastroenterology and significant technical and technological advancements.

This specialized branch has evolved from the broader scope of General Surgery, marking a pivotal transition driven by the increasing depth of insights into gastroenterology. The advent of Surgical Gastroenterology has notably enhanced patient outcomes, particularly for those grappling with intricate GI surgical issues. Within the realm of SGE, three principal domains take center stage: Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB), Foregut or Upper GI Surgery, and Colorectal Surgery. Each domain integrates expertise in Endoscopy and Laparoscopy, offering comprehensive solutions for a wide array of GI surgical challenges.

The incorporation of Endoscopy and Laparoscopic techniques within these domains signifies a holistic approach, ensuring that patients receive thorough and advanced care for their gastrointestinal concerns. The evolution of Surgical Gastroenterology represents a critical advancement in the medical field, where specialized knowledge and cutting-edge technologies converge to address the complexities of digestive system surgery, ultimately improving the overall quality of patient care.
