Upper Gastrointestinal (upper digestive system)
Our surgeons carry out operations and procedures on the upper part of your digestive system, which runs from the mouth to the stomach.
Together with a team of specialist nurses, we look after people with a range of conditions affecting the oesophagus (gullet), stomach, liver, pancreas, gall bladder, liver, pancreas, spleen and small intestine.
Some operations are routine, others are more complex and some have to be done in an emergency.
We work closely with the Colorectal team (they look after conditions affecting the lower part of the digestive system), as well as specialists across the hospital.
