G & L Surgical, a surgical clinic in Singapore provides for various medical procedure and treatments for gastrointestinal cancers and other health needs.
G & L aims to provide the best for its patients. Its services are founded on the philosophy that their services are characterized by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole, and that these too are characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.
The services that the surgical clinic provides for its Endoscopy are Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy. Gastroscopy is an investigation of the oesophagus and stomach from the mouth through to the start of the small intestine. This uses a tiny camera mounted at the end of a thin, flexible tube. It makes detection of conditions associated with stomach cancer much easier, such as inflammation and ulcers, as well as bacteria that increase the risk of stomach cancer. A colonoscopy investigates the large intestine together with the rectum and anus. It is done using a camera mounted at the end of a thin flexible tube. Samples of the large intestine can be taken for tests if there are any growths or unusual findings.
It offers under its Advanced Laparoscopy, the procedures for Hernia Surgery, Gallbladder Surgery and Anti-Reflux Surgery. Anti-Reflux Surgery is a procedure which can be done with keyhole or laparoscopic surgery. It allows the repair of the muscle around the lower oesophagus. The upper stomach is also used to wrap around the lower oesophagus to complete the surgery. This procedure is called laparoscopic fundoplication. Gallbladder Surgery is a procedure done with keyhole or laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscope or camera is inserted through small incision around the belly/naval area. The attachments of 3 other instruments are used with 0.5cm skin incisions, the gallbladder is clipped and cut. It is then removed via the navel.

After six months, the balloon will be removed. The projected weight loss is usually about 15% of the original weight.
