Surgical Gastroenterology


The speciality of gastroenterology involves the diagnosis and management of patients with diseases of the intestines, liver and biliary tree, and pancreas. The specialty is broadly divided into two aspects: medical and surgical, with a close working relationship maintained between the two.

Surgical gastroenterology is split into three specialties:

  • Upper gastrointestinal tract
  • Lower GI tract and the liver
  • Bile ducts and pancreas
