Declare the past, diagnose the present, foretell the future.

Pancreatic surgery is still associated with a relatively high morbidity and mortality compared with other specialties. Laparoscopic surgery is typically performed using 3 or 4 half-inch or one-inch incisions, sparing patients a large incision. Laparoscopic surgery is ideal for tumors of the pancreas tail. Larger tumors of any part of the pancreas for which an open operation is required can be started laparoscopically to look for cancer spread before making the large incision. The hand-access devices are a major advancement in laparoscopic surgery and allows the surgeon to place the hand into the abdomen during the surgical procedure. Patient who undergo laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy have less pain, rapid recovery and early discharge compared to open distal pancreatectomy.

Your Gut is your Inner Compass

#Track9#GutMicrobiome# Most of the microbes in the intestines are found in a pocket of large intestine called the cecum, and they are referred to as the Gut microbiome. The Gut microbiome refers to all of the microbes in the intestines, which act as another organ that's crucial for the health. Gut microbiota or gastrointestinal microbiota is the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals, including insects. In humans, the gut microbiota has the largest numbers of bacteria and the greatest number of species compared to other areas of the body.

#Track7#PancreaticTumour#Pancreatic cancer begins when abnormal cells within the pancreas grow out of control and form a tumor. These cells also have different functions. About 94% of pancreatic cancers are classified as exocrine tumors. The tumors start in the exocrine cells that make pancreatic enzymes which help in digestion. Within this category, the vast majority of tumors are adenocarcinomas. Pancreatic cancer can also spread to nearby lymph nodes, blood vessels or nerves. Cancer cells may travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body, such as the liver. Treatment for pancreatic cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these.

Medicines heal doubts as well as Diseases

#Track1#ClinicalGastroenterology# Gastroenterology is the study of normal functioning, diagnosis and treatment of stomach and intestinal disorders. The digestive track that starts from the mouth and runs up to the anus, encompasses of various organs such as alimentary canal, esophagus, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, liver, duodenum, small intestine and large intestine. There are various accessory organs that assist the tract by secreting enzymes to help break down food into its component nutrients. Thus the salivary glands, liver, pancreas and gall bladder have important functions in the digestive system. Gastroenterology deals with the functioning of each organ in the digestive system while focusing on various diseases that may attack them. Gastroenterology facilitates a thorough understanding of the digestion process, absorption of nutrient values, and excretion. It also discusses the diseases that may affect these organs including polyps, cancer, ulcers, hepatitis, and refluxes. For more details

Health is a relationship between you and your body

#Track5#Gastroenterology and Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses nutrients, and the relationship between diet, health, and disease. Nutrition has become more focused on metabolism and metabolic pathways (biochemical steps) through which substances inside the body are transformed from one form to another. Nutrition also focuses on how diseases, conditions, and problems can be prevented or reduced with a healthy diet. A very low calorie diet (VLCD) is a clinically supervised diet plan that involves eating about 800 calories a day or fewer which prevents Gastrointestinal disorders. Probiotics are microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed. Probiotics have many advantages such as reducing gastrointestinal discomfort, improving immune health and in relieving constipation. Dietary enzymes and Single cell proteins can be used as supplements.
