Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine a patient’s digestive tract and perform corrective surgeries. Digestive endoscopy is used to diagnose diseases of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum and colon (colonoscopy). Using an endoscope to locate diseased areas, specialists are able to take samples of the diseased tissue for biopsies. Endoscopy also assists with the detection and removal of early tumors.
Endoscopy and colonoscopy are very safe procedures that have a proven successful track record in disease detection, prevention and treatment.
Available endoscopic procedures include:
- UPPER DIGESTIVE ENDOSCOPY ( GASTROSCOPY) WITH OR WITHOUT BIOPSIES
- TREATMENT OF BLEEDING DISORDERS OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT
- FOREIGN MATTER EXTRACTION
- VARICEAL SCLEROTHERAPY
- VARICEAL BAND LIGATION
- BIPOLAR ELECTROCOAGULATION
- ESOPHAGEAL DILATIONS
