CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK 14: GASTROINTESTINAL SURGERY
What is gastrointestinal surgery?
Gastrointestinal surgery is a treatment for disorders that affect the digestive organs. This consists of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum. In addition, it includes the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver.
Surgical removal of a malignant or noncancerous tumour or damaged body part, such as the intestine, is possible. It may also be used to treat conditions such as hernias (a hole or weak spot in the wall of the abdomen). To detect and diagnose digestive system abnormalities, minor surgical techniques are utilized.
What are the potential hazards or side effects?
Any surgical procedure carries risks, including:
- Whenever the body is compromised, pathogens can enter. During surgery, surgeons take great care to maintain sterility and cleanliness, but there is always a risk of infection.
- Depending on the type of operation, recuperation may involve discomfort and suffering.
- Blood loss and blood clotting. Occasionally, surgical wounds continue to bleed, prolonging the recuperation process. Occasionally, the body produces a blood clot at the surgical site, which clogs a critical blood vessel leading to the lungs, heart, or brain.
- An injury to a different body portion. During surgery, a healthy bodily part can be accidentally harmed.
- A response to anaesthesia. Some individuals react poorly to anaesthesia and may have nausea and vomiting.
What are the advantages?
The removal of a tumour or damaged bodily part, or the restoration of damage, can be life-saving surgery. Additionally, surgery can enhance the quality of life for those who have not responded to other therapies, such as medication or dietary modifications.
Colonoscopy is a small surgical operation with significant benefits: it can detect colon cancer at an early enough stage for treatment. It is essential to do the suggested colon cancer screening.
How do I prepare?
The preparation for surgery varies on the type of procedure being performed.
Follow the Directions
The doctor or nurse will give you instructions on how to prepare for surgery. Almost certainly, you will be instructed not to eat or drink before operation. The physician may also instruct you to cease taking certain medications or supplements prior to surgery. Follow all of the pre-surgery preparation instructions provided.
Plan for the Day of Operation and After Have a plan for who will drive you to the surgery and who will drive you home, even if it is a simple procedure.
Determine who will assist you in the days following surgery. The week after returning home from surgery is the most crucial period. If everything goes as planned, you will be on the road to a rapid recovery. If not, you might have to return to the hospital.

Plan any modifications to your living space. Will you be able to ascend stairs following surgery? Will you be able to use the restroom as-is, or will a grab bar or other equipment be required? Do you have the necessary food or a plan for someone to provide meals? Where will you receive physical therapy following a surgical procedure?
How is it administered or performed?
Most surgeries are performed by cutting into the body with a scalpel and other instruments. Using a scope — a narrow tube equipped with a camera and small surgical instruments — to remove growths in the colon, for instance, is a form of surgery.
It is possible to perform either open surgery or minimally invasive surgery while cutting into the body.
- The surgeon makes one major incision to open the body during open surgery.
- Minimally invasive surgery, often known as laparoscopic surgery: The surgeon creates a few small incisions and uses a camera to view the body’s interior. The surgeon inserts the camera and surgical equipment through separate incisions. These smaller incisions typically heal more quickly than the huge incision of open surgery.
Our paediatric gastroenterologists have extensive experience and knowledge in the management of nutritional problems in children. They can also diagnose and treat liver disease in children, adolescents, and even infants. These medical professionals provide care for infants and adolescents.
