The Upper Gastrointestinal and Bariatric Surgery service is a sub-specialty service under the Department of Surgery. Our team provides management of diseases affecting the upper gastrointestinal tract which ranges from outpatient clinical evaluation, to day procedures such as diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, as well as complex surgical procedures in the operating theatre.
Our team is equipped to perform minimally invasive (i.e. key-hole) surgery for the majority of conditions we encounter. This can include the surgical treatment of morbid obesity, metabolic syndrome (with type II diabetes mellitus), benign upper digestive tract disorders, and the complete resection of malignant tumors with restoration of digestive tract function. In addition, we work closely in multi-disciplinary teams (with doctors in other departments, specialist nurses and allied health professionals) to provide care for our patients.
Our team strongly believes that continuing medical education is of utmost importance. We regularly run public forums to raise awareness, promote good health and encourage early treatment. Apart from teaching medical undergraduates, we also conduct hands-on workshops for healthcare professionals in the region. We are actively engaged in clinical research as well, and are running several multi-disciplinary studies- our publications can be found in international surgical journals.
