Our Expertise

Doctors and residents have long felt the need for quality medical care for disorders of the liver and digestive tract. Recognizing that patients with gastrointestinal disease have special requirements, Ford Hospital has set up this department to provide high quality tertiary level services in gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery. Such services, as a cohesive unit, were so far provided only in a handful of India’s premier government institutions. The advantages of a “team” approach i.e. medical and surgical has been well documented in these units and the aim was to extend this to the private sector.

Ford Hospital has a highly qualified team of doctors which is supported by state of the art equipment such as video endoscopes, laparoscopic surgical equipment, a well equipped ICU and operation theater with an image intensifier. Emergency and elective treatment can be provided for a wide range of liver and digestive disorders from the simplest to the most complex.

Understanding the chronic and evolving nature of digestive disorders prevalent in developing countries, Ford Hospital is at the forefront of diagnosis and treatment of gastro-intestinal diseases through minimally invasive technology. This makes the procedure affordable while ensuring speedy recovery.
