Gastroscopy, Colonoscopy and Middle Endoscopy

 

Identify abnormalities within the gastrointestinal system with specialist surgeon, Dr Michael Yunaev.

Endoscopy

Inspection of the gastrointestinal system.

This is a procedure that allows a video camera to inspect the hollow organs of the gastrointestinal system. The camera is located at the end of long cord that allows an easy passage inside the hollow organs.

The objective of these procedures is to identify any abnormalities within the gastrointestinal system that may be causing symptoms experienced by the patient. Furthermore, biopsies can be taken at the time of the procedure to help diagnose a problem.

Other common uses for endoscopy include interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as polypectomy (removal or biopsy of polyps), removal of blockages and foreign objects, controlling of gastrointestinal bleeding via a range of different techniques, insertion of stents for blockages, and for enteral feeding of sick patients.
