Gastroentrology Department




   The Department of Gastroenterology in Ayub Medical College and Ayub Teaching Hospital was created in 1987. Dr Alamzeb Manan (Retired) was appointed as Assistant Professor to establish the Department. Initially the Department was created in the Medical ward of DHQ Teaching with only 8 beds and had no Endoscopy facility.

   The Department started with a very humble beginning but with the untiring efforts of Professor Alamzeb Manan (retired), today the Department has developed into an independent Unit at The Ayub Teaching Hospital with 24 beds and 2 isolation rooms. The Department is attached to The Ayub Medical College. In November2002 the College of Physicians and surgeons of Pakistan, recognized the Unit for Post-graduate training in Gastroenterology, We are daily on call and take all G.I and Liver cases that come to our hospital and manage all other cases referred to us from other units of the hospital as well as all peripheral Hospitals. We have 3 outpatient clinics a week and are daily on call.

   Teaching is done on a regular basis to Medical students, House job Doctors and post-graduates. In our unit we have an Assistant Professor, a Registrar, 2 Medical officer , 8 TMOs and 4 House officers.

   There is an independent Endoscopy room where we have a video-endoscopy system attached to a computer and a colour printer. The Endoscopy room is connected by CCTV to a lecture room where endoscopic procedures can be observed on a large screen, by trainees. We are able to generate computerized reports with Endoscopy pictures. We are doing all GI procedures i.e. Upper GI , Lower GI endoscopies and ERCP, both diagnostic as well as therapeutic. All the data can be easily accessed and we are also able to make our own CD for teaching purposes. We are also in the process of acquiring equipment for capsule Endoscopy, enteroscopy, EMR and ultra sound Endoscopy.

The Department caters for the whole of the Northern area i.e. Hazara, Azad Kashmir, Gilgat, Kohistan and areas of Swat.
