Centre for Digestive Diseases
The Centre for Digestive Diseases has state-of- the-art facilities for the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of complex gastrointestinal, liver, gallbladder, and pancreatic diseases. The departments of imaging, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, oncology and lab services also work closely with the Centre to provide comprehensive treatment to patients.
At AIMS, we strive to offer both patients and referring physicians a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach for disorders of the pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder. A team of gastroenterologists, interventional endoscopists, radiologists, GI HPB and transplant surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, work together to design a personalised diagnostic and therapeutic plan for each patient. Nursing coordinators organise and expedite patient evaluations to minimise multiple visits for testing and physician consultation.
The core units of the centre are the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and the Gastrointestinal Surgery Department. The departments of Imaging, Interventional Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Oncology and Lab Services also work closely with the Digestive Diseases group.
