The department of Surgical Gastroenterology was started in 2008 with the intention of providing professional GI surgical care to the patients of KIMS. The department manages patients with complicated surgical problems of the GI tract and has outpatient clinics and admission facilities in general, special wards and intensive care unit. The department has been conducting major and complex supra-major surgeries both in open as well as laparoscopic techniques apart from performing endoscopic procedures as OP and IP regularly. The long term vision of the department is to initiate the PG programme in MCh Surgical Gastroenterology so as to train the postgraduates of MS Gen Surgery in the field of GI surgery.
