Gastroenterology

 
Gastroenterology is a branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders. The term is a combination of three Ancient Greek words γαστήρ gaster (generic gastros) "stomach", ἔντερον enteron "intestine", and λόγος logos "reason".

Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the organs from mouth to anus, along the alimentary canal, are the focus of this Specialty. Hepatology, or hepatobiliary medicine, encompasses the study of the liver, pancreas, and biliary tree, and is a sub-Specialty of Gastroenterology. Physicians practicing in this field of medicine are called gastroenterologists, who have usually completed the 12 years of medical training, including 3 years residency in Gastroenterology, where they are trained not only to hone clinical skills to treat digestive diseases, but also attain proficiency in various diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures.

Doctors at the Cedar Clinics ™ have also undergone further training in specialized high end therapeutic procedures like ERCP’s and EUS (See Endoscopy section). The Clinic is equipped with the latest High Definition GI Endoscopy system and monitors from Olympus Corp., Japan.

The Cedar Clinics™ takes pride in being the only clinic in the city to have a fully automated Endoscopy Cleaning system and 2 sets of endoscopes. This ensures that all Endoscopes are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to every procedure, ensuring that what goes into your body for examination meets the rigorous disinfection criteria laid down by the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy guidelines.

A quiet and roomy recovery area has been designed in the clinic to ensure that before and after every procedure, patients can rest comfortably for some time.

The clinic also boasts of a well designed library subscribing to the latest medical journals and texts, in order that its Consultants are well versed with the latest happenings in the field of medicine and surgery.
