Gastrointestinal Surgery

Gastrointestinal (GI) surgeries are performed to treat diseases in the digestive parts of the body, such the stomach, small & large intestine, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.


Common Gastrointestinal surgeries include: Gallbladder removal; Reflux; Hiatus Hernia surgery; Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery; Endoscopic diagnostics and Gastroscopy.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a procedure where the gallbladder is removed through a single large incision in the abdomen. This surgery is usually done as a day case.

Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery

Also commonly described as heartburn or acid indigestion, this condition is where stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus, causing a burning sensation in the chest. Anti-reflux surgery involves creating a valve mechanism within the oesophagus to stop acid from rising up.

Hiatus Hernia surgery

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through a particularly weak spot in the muscle or tissue. To resolve this discomfort, a surgeon will patch the weak spot by using surgical mesh.


This is a test to look at the upper part of your digestive system - specifically the inside of your throat, oesophagus and stomach, using a small camera at the end of a long, thin tube, that's placed inside your body through your mouth.
