The Department of Surgical Gastroenterology was established in April 2018 with the goal of providing surgical services to patients with complex benign and malignant gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary-pancreatic diseases. In addition to providing comprehensive patient care, the department is dedicated to research and training in this field. In the January 2020 session, the department began an M.Ch course in Surgical Gastroenterology. We received approval for two M.Ch seats per year. For performing complex GI surgical procedures, the Department is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments such as a 4k laparoscope, intraoperative ultrasound (BK Medical), and energy sources such as Harmonic (Ethicon Gen 10) and Cavitron Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator (CUSA) (Sonoca 300, Soring GmBH). The department currently has one associate professor and one assistant professor, as well as four M.Ch students, four non-academic senior residents, and two junior residents. We offer OPD services on all working weekdays and surgical services four days a week. It also provides emergency services around the clock, with 1 Senior Resident and 1 Junior Resident on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the ward. The department has a dedicated surgical gastroenterology ward with 30 beds and an adequate nursing staff. The department has 8 ongoing research projects and 22 publications in the last year.
