 Our department provides surgical care for a wide variety of gastroenterological diseases, such as malignant disease, inflammatory bowel disease and benign disease. One of the main features of our care is the active use of minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopic, thoracoscopic and endoscopic procedures (EMR, ESD and POEM), by experienced hands. We also provide each cancer patient with the most suitable and satisfactory care by combining multimodality therapy.
