  • Endoscopic surgery: Endoscopic surgery is a procedure in which a flexible tube with a camera is inserted through the mouth or anus to view and operate on the digestive system.
  • Colorectal surgery: Colorectal surgery is performed on the colon or rectum to treat conditions such as cancer, diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Gallbladder surgery: Gallbladder surgery is done to remove the gallbladder to treat conditions such as gallstones.
  • Pancreatic surgery: Pancreatic surgery is performed to remove pancreatic tumours or treat pancreatitis.
  • Liver surgery: It is the surgery to remove liver tumours or treat conditions such as cirrhosis.
