The diagnosis and treatment of digestive system problems are the focus of the field of gastroenterology. Studies of the oesophagus, liver, small intestines, colon and rectum, pancreas, bile ducts, and hepatitis are also done with this technique. It necessitates a thorough grasp of the gastrointestinal organ's normal function (physiology), including material passage through the stomach and intestines, nutritional intake and bloodstream absorption, systemic waste removal, and its function as a digestive organ. In a word, the study of gastroenterology covers both normal digestion and its problems.

In the past two decades, there has been a significant increase in the understanding of and technology in the field of gastroenterology. It is now a broad specialisation that includes hepatology, pancreatectomy, motility studies of bowel disorders, and endoscopy. For the prevention, detection, and treatment of gastrointestinal, liver, and pancreatic disorders, including cancer, gastrointestinal institutions employ a combination diagnostic and surgical strategy.

The gastroenterology department at B.P. Poddar Hospital's ambulatory and hospital professionals provide comprehensive, cutting-edge care. The Hospital is run by respected and skilled gastroenterologists, skilled paramedic staff, well-trained technicians, and nurses. Gastrointestinal tract disorders include oesophagus, intestinal, large intestine, and rectal illnesses as well as disorders of the accessory digestive organs (such as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas). The OPD is treated non-invasively by the gastroenterology department.
