Upper gastrointestinal surgery is a treatment of diseases of the parts of body involved in digestion which are oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, gall bladder and small intestine. For example, gastrectomy, oesophagectomy, minimally invasive laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.

Surgery may be used to remove cancerous or noncancerous growth or damaged part of the body such as intestine. Upper gastrointestinal surgeons frequently advise and perform endoscopic evaluation of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Usually, minor surgical procedures are used to screen and diagnose those problems of the digestive system.

Gastrointestinal conditions that may be treated with surgery:

Appendicitis, colon cancer, diverticular disease, gallbladder disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), hernia, inflammatory bowel disease and rectal prolapse.

On top of that, obesity is also treated through gastric bypass (bariatric surgery). This surgery is usually done by a specialist in bariatric surgery.
