Endoscopy

Home Procedures Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person’s digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a video monitor.

With flexible endoscopy , we will be able to directly visualise and diagnose various anal, rectal and colonic conditions like ulcerative colitis, crohn’s disease, cancers, diverticulosis, polyps.

It also forms a very effective surveillance tool for Colon and rectal Cancer’s and hence forms a very important tool in the hands of a colo rectal surgeon.

An endoscopy might be recommended to investigate the following symptoms:
  • difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
  • persistent abdominal pain
  • chest pain that isn’t caused by heart-related conditions
  • persistent nausea and vomiting
  • unexplained weight loss
  • vomiting blood
  • persistent diarrhoea
  • blood in your stools

If the gullet (oesophagus), stomach or first part of the small intestine needs to be examined, it’s known as a gastroscopy.

Advantages of Endoscopy:
  • Various polpys can be snared or removed from the colon with ease.
  • Various foreign bodies can be effectively dealt with the help of endoscopes.
  • Various Biopsies can be taken to aid in the diagnosis of suspected lesions.
  • Relieve Sigmoid Volvulus, a life threatening condition, which can avoid surgery.
