Your doctor might recommend Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery if you suffer from symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, heart burn, acid regurgitation and swallowing difficulties. Your condition will be first evaluated using diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the underlying conditions.
These symptoms can be caused by conditions such as inflammation of the stomach (gastritis) or duodenum (duodenitis), H.pylori infection (bacteria found in the lining of the stomach), peptic ulcers, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, and other diseases affecting the motility and function of the oesophagus. They can also be caused by oesophageal or stomach tumours. Depending on the location and the stage of the cancer, surgery might be needed for the management and treatment of the cancer.
