The Centre of Excellence

About us

Our mission is to provide our patients with the best possible care. We take great pride in our facilities and personnel who continuously strive to achieve excellence in every aspect of care.

Advanced treatments

The Centre for Digestive Diseases (CDD) houses cutting-edge technologies enabling our specialists to provide advanced treatments. For instance, the CDD is one of the few institutions offering infrared coagulation (IRC) which promotes fast healing of haemorrhoids with minimal discomfort. This and other treatments we offer allow for a more comfortable experience for our patients.

Leadership

Physicians and nurses at the CDD understand the personal difficulties associated with gastrointestinal (GI) related disorders. Under the leadership of Professor Thomas Borody, efforts are made to address these through the delivery of the latest unique treatments and therapies.

Research

The CDD is also a research leader with more than 150 patents developed for advanced treatments that can be custom designed at our compounding chemist partner to suit you exact therapeutic requirements. At any one time, there are a number of clinical trials in process designed to find cures and treatments for GI conditions.

Helicobacter pylori

Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped bacterium that infects well over 30% of the world’s population. It invades the mucosal lining of the stomach and is the cause of up to 95% of duodenal and up to 75% gastric ulcers and has also been associated with gastric cancer and lymphoma.

Coeliac Disease

Coeliac disease is a condition in which the small intestine lining is damaged and this interferes with absorption of nutrients. Patients with coeliac disease have intolerance to a protein in gluten which causes the immune system to attack the cells lining the small intestine.

Diverticulosis & Diverticulitis

Many people have small pouches in their colons that bulge outward through weak spots. Each pouch is called a diverticulum and when pouches become infected or inflamed, the condition is diverticulitis.
