About Surgical Gastroenterology
Surgical Gastroenterology is a new addition to surgical specialty. With rapid progress in diagnostic and interventional Gastroenterology, this specialty became a necessity requiring surgeons specially trained in operating on the gastro-intestinal tract. "Minimal access surgery" or "Key hole surgery" are the two advancements in the field of surgery and organ transplantation that are relevant to abdominal surgery. It further widenes the horizons of surgical gastroenterology.
In this surgery, entire gastro intestinal tract starting from esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, rectum, liver and pancreas is covered. Specialized training and skill is required for an advanced surgery on each of these organs. This is taught in a very few surgical units in the country and abroad.
To be a trained surgical gastroenterologist, a surgeon requires prolonged stay and training in the field of surgical Gastroenterology after general surgical training. At present abdominal surgeries are done laparoscopically and present day surgical gastroenterologists are well versed in these.
