Surgery for digestive diseases has witnessed several path breaking developments over the last 2 decades. With advancements in the available surgical technology several existing procedures were refined and a number of innovative operations were introduced. To assimilate these developments, surgery for malignant and benign diseases of the digestive tract has evolved as the super specialty of Surgical Gastroenterology (G I surgery).
The emergence of specialized G I surgery centres committed only towards the management of digestive tract ailments led to an improved understanding of various disease processes and their treatment. With centralization of digestive disease patients in SGE facility, seemingly complex and hitherto infrequently performed procedures were performed with ease, in high volumes and with significant reduction in the incidence and severity of procedure related adverse events. Together with an early recognition and better management of remaining such events there was an overall superior post-surgical and long-term outcome at dedicated SGE facilities. Many of the current clinical practices have been extensively researched and are supported by a high level of evidence.
