Upper Gastro-Intestinal Surgery in Sydney
Serving patients in Penrith, The Entrance, Londonderry & Baulkham Hills
From hernia to gallstones, through to difficulty swallowing or complex cancer treatment of the upper GI tract, our surgeons at Advanced Surgicare can help. We use minimally invasive techniques for these surgeries, which leads to minimal scarring and quicker recovery.
Diagnosis and treatment of many disorders of the oesophagus, such as reflux, difficulty swallowing, and cancers can be performed with endoscopic technique. Endoscopy is a test which allows the doctor to examine the inside of the patient's oesophagus, stomach, and portions of the intestine, with an instrument called an endoscope, a thin flexible lighted tube. It is performed by a well-trained subspecialist who uses the endoscope to diagnose and, in some cases, treat problems of the upper digestive system.
