Digestive Disease Center

Welcome to the Sanggye Paik Hospital website.


Sanggye Paik Hospital's Digestive Disease Center is equipped with the best staff, facility and equipment required for a tertiary hospital so that we can provide a total diagnostic and therapeutic service for all types of diseases that involve the human digestive system.

  • We offer GI (esophagus, stomach, intestine, colon)-upper GI endoscopy (esophagus, stomach, duodenum), capsule endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy that offer diagnosis for all diseases that can occur in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • We carry out gastrointestinal motility test-esophageal manometry, 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring and anorectal manometry in order to offer diagnosis of functional gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD and functional constipation.
  • Liver disorder – We treat acute and chronic hepatitis, alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver, steatohepatitis, liver cirrhosis and complications, and liver cancer.
  • Liver fibrosis test – We offer early diagnosis and treatment of liver cirrhosis that progresses in chronic hepatitis patients by measuring the level of liver fibrosis without tissue biopsy.
  • Pancreas and biliary tract – We use endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography for the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic disorders.
  • Endoscopic ultrasonography – We are equipped with the latest instruments that offer staging for submucosal tumor, GI tumors, mediastinal tumor and lung cancer, and we are capable of difficult histologic diagnosis for submucosal tumors and pancreatic cancer ultrasound guided using fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
  • Therapeutic endoscopy – We carry out hemostasis for various GI bleeding, foreign object removal, endoscopic polypectomy and remove tumors without open surgery by carrying out endoscopic submucosal dissection for early cancer and adenomas that occur in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • We offer balloon dilation and stent insertion for gastrointestinal and pancreatic or bile duct obstruction caused by ulcer or cancer, and we also offer endoscopic removal and drainage for pancreatic or bile duct stone and pseudocysts that occur after pancreatitis.
  • We offer injection sclerotherapy and ligation for esophageal and gastric varices caused by liver cirrhosis, and we also offer alcohol injection and high frequency therapy as well as trans-catheter arterial chemoembolization as the latest treatment for liver cancer.
  • We offer quick and accurate high-resolution ultrasonography, 65 channel CT, MRI and PET imaging in coordination with the Department of Radiology
