Gastroenterology studies the digestive system and its disorders. The word is a combination of three Ancient Greek words: gastro (stomach), enteron (intestine), and logos (reason). In simple terms, gastroenterologists study the diseases affecting the organs of the gastrointestinal tract.
At Vydehi hospital, we diagnose and treat the entire range of gastrointestinal diseases and liver diseases. Our expert team of specialists in endoscopy and gastroenterology use the most advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques. They carry the examination of the gastrointestinal tract with video endoscopes, which produce a high-quality picture of the internal lining of the gastrointestinal tract. The two common video endoscopies performed are OesophagoGastroDuodenoscopy (OGD for short; it is often also called gastroscopy) and colonoscopy.
