The gastrointestinal (GI) system form the very core of our bodies and it is composed of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas. All of which play many essential roles in our body every second. It is not surprising that many common complaints take root in the GI system and are among the leading reasons that patients seek health care. If at any time these organs show signs and symptoms (occasional indigestion, heartburn, abdominal cramping, urgent bowel movements, or constipation) of disorder, it is an indication of the possible progression of a disease. Addressing the appropriate underlying GI issues not only helps relieve digestive discomforts, it also supports many other aspects of long-term health and able to detect the disease and approach the treatment early.

The Liver and Digestive Institute specializes in endoscopy and offers full–cycle diagnostic services and treatment for diseases related to the liver and gastrointestinal (GI) system, such as viral hepatitis, alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, pancreatitis, gallstone-related diseases and many more.The Liver and Digestive Institute use the latest medical innovations and technologies. We are equipped with a team of specialists who draw from years of training and experience both in Thailand and abroad to provide Thai, expatriate and international patients with the most accurate diagnoses and best treatment plans.

Available Medical Investigations

Blood Test: As needed.

Example: Complete Blood Count, Lipid Profile, Liver Function Test, Tumour Marker, etc.

Stool Analysis: To find out any cause of bacteria, viruses and parasites infection.

Abdominal ultrasound: An imaging test to visualise the internal organs for their size, structure and any pathological lesions.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD): It is a diagnostic endoscopic procedure that visualizes the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract to examine any abnormalities.
