Utilize cutting-edge technology

  • Echoendoscope

    It is also known as the Endoscopic Ultrasound and is a test that combines endoscopic and ultrasound images in order to evaluate lesions located on and around the walls of the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Cyberknife VSI

    It is a non-invasive treatment for cancerous and non-cancerous tumours and other conditions where radiation therapy is indicated. Cyberknife is the only fully robotic radiation delivery system. The robotic design, coupled with real-time imaging, enable the Cyberknife System to deliver a maximum dose of radiation directly to the tumour from many different angles with sub-millimeter precision.

  • Da Vinci Si 3D Robot

    The Da Vinci robotic technology is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today.  It enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries through a few tiny incisions, instead of giving the patient a big cut. The system has an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating. The hand movements of the surgeon are converted into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.

Avail advanced treatment and procedures

  • Capsule Endoscopy

    Capsule Endoscopy is a great way to take images of a person’s digestive tract. The patient takes the capsule inside his stomach through the mouth. The capsule has a little camera attached so that when a patient swallows it, the camera takes pictures of the inside of the gastrointestinal tract.

  • ERCP (Therapeutic and diagnostic

    Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography or ERCP is a procedure used to examine the pancreatic and bile ducts. A bendable, lighted tube (endoscope) is placed through the mouth and into stomach and first part of the small intestine (duodenum).

  • Endoscopic Ultrasound

    Endoscopic Ultrasound is a minimally invasive procedure performed to assess gastrointestinal and lung diseases. High-frequency sound waves are used during the ultrasound to get detailed images of the walls and the lining of a person’s digestive tract, chest, and other organs nearby such as liver, pancreas, and lymph node

  • UGI Endoscopy

    An UGI (Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy) is a procedure performed by the doctor in order to look at the inside lining of the oesophagus (food pipe), the stomach, and the first part of a person’s small intestine. The endoscope is inserted through the patient’s mouth and is then gently moved down the throat into the oesophagus, and then into the stomach and the upper gastrointestinal tract.

  • Liver Biopsy

    In a liver biopsy, a little needle is inserted into the liver to take a tissue sample. The tissue is further analyzed for any diseases the liver might be housing. Liver biopsies are usually performed to help figure out the cause of abnormal liver blood tests, jaundice, or the inexplicable inflammation of the liver.

  • Lap Cholecystectomy

    A Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a procedure wherein the gallbladder is removed from one’s body using laparoscopic techniques. The surgery is minimally invasive, and is performed with the major assistance of several thin instruments, and a video camera.

  • Necrosectomy

    Necrosectomy is used as a primary therapy for infected pancreatic necrosis. Pancreatic necrosis is a condition where a part of the person’s pancreas loses its blood supply. Necrosectomy refers to the removal of dead tissues. Dead tissues lead to severe infections, and to prevent that, necrosectomy is performed.

  • Segmental Colectomy

    Colectomy is a widely performed surgery aimed at treating colon diseases, which include cancer, inflammatory diseases, and diverticulitis. The surgery aims at removing a slight portion of the colon, which is a part of a person’s large intestine.

  • Ileostomy

    It is a procedure where an opening is made surgically in abdominal wall. The ileum, which is the lower end of your small intestine, is passed through this opening and stitched into place. The patient is given a pouch to be worn externally which stores all of the digested food. This procedure is done if the rectum or colon is unable to properly function. If the ileostomy is temporary, part or all of the colon is removed, but a part of the rectum remains. For a permanent ileostomy, surgeon removes or bypasses the rectum, colon, and anus. In this case, patient will be wearing an external plastic pouch permanently to catch the waste products.

  • Exploratory Laparotomy

    An exploratory laparotomy (ex-lap) is a surgical operation where the abdomen is opened and the abdominal organs examined for injury or disease.

  • Whipple Procedure

    Also known as pancreaticoduodenectomy, the Whipple procedure involves removal of the "head" (wide part) of the pancreas next to the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach.

  • Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy

    It also known as stapled hemorrhoidopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of abnormally enlarged hemorrhoidal tissue, followed by the repositioning of the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue back to its normal anatomic position.
