Digestive Disease (GI) Center

Digestive Disease Center

With digestive diseases becoming increasingly common, more and more people are at risk of developing serious complications if not treated; issues such as reflux disease, dyspepsia, constipation, diarrhea, hepatitis, and gastrointestinal and liver cancer can occur at every age. 

Bumrungrad’s Digestive Disease Center in Bangkok, Thailand brings together nearly 20 specialists in the following areas:

  • Gastroenterology: A medical specialty that focuses on the digestive system (esophagus, stomach, small intestines and colon).  Includes pediatric gastroenterology.
  • Hepatology: A medical specialty that focuses on the liver and associated organs (gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and biliary tree).
  • Diagnostic Endoscopy:  Investigative examinations that look inside the body through an endoscope (a long, flexible tube usually with a camera on the end) to find out what the source of a problem might be.
  • Therapeutic Endoscopy: Going inside the body with an endoscope to treat a problem.
