Department of Gastrointestinal (GI) and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery at Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre
The Gastrointestinal (GI) and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery Service was started in 1999 in Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre with the establishment of a unit comprising consultants with special interests and expertise in HPB and GI surgery. In 2006, this unit became a separate department and was recognised for the Diplomate of National Board (DNB) Surgical Gastroenterology Programme of the National Board of Examinations (NBE).
The department has now evolved into a well-known centre for treating patients with complex diseases of the digestive system, liver, pancreas, and biliary tract.
The Department of Gastrointestinal (GI) and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery has consultants who have specialised in hepatobiliary surgery, liver transplantation, laparoscopic surgery, upper GI surgery, bariatric surgery and colorectal surgery. This surgical work is backed by expertise in gastroenterology, interventional radiology and endoscopy. HPB and GI surgeons perform complex hepatobiliary procedures, which include resections of the liver for tumours, surgery for obstructive jaundice, procedures for portal hypertension and surgical intervention for pancreatitis. With support from hepatology, endoscopy and interventional radiology services, a combined team approach is offered for the management of liver tumours.
