​​​Digestive System Surgery is the medical specialty that treats, through surgical procedures, benign and malignant diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract, from the esophagus to the rectum and anus. "That also includes the adnexal glands such as the liver and pancreas and the biliary tract", explains the digestive system surgeon at Hospital Nove de Julho Dénis Pajecki. 

Hospital Nove de Julho has a great tradition in this specialty and has a team of surgeons highly qualified for the most diverse procedures. The institution also has an excellent infrastructure and advanced technological resources for diagnosis and surgeries, including those with High Complexity. 

"Nove De Julho was a pioneer in video-laparoscopy in the early 1990s and, as of the early 2000s, in diagnostic procedures, such as endoscopic ultrasound and capsule endoscopy", says Pajecki. Echo-endoscopy is a modality of endoscopy associated with ultrasound, which improves the ability to diagnose organs such as the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, and biliary tract. Capsule endoscopy, in turn, is performed with the aid of a tiny capsule integrated with a camera that helps in the diagnosis of diseases of the small intestine.  

The hospital also relies on robotic technology. "It is very efficient in bariatric and esophageal surgery, for example, as it adds technological advances in imaging and movement precision during the procedure, providing better results in the treatment and faster recovery for the patient", says Pajecki. 

Another differential of Hospital Nove de Julho is the multidisciplinary team formed by surgeons, endoscopists, clinical gastroenterologists, hepatologists, endocrinologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, oncologists, nutritionists, and nutriologists, among others. This wide approach allows for better treatment of cases of High Complexity digestive diseases.
