Gastroenterology and Endoscopy

Endoscopy:

It is the process of examining the stomach and intestine-like hollow organs with advanced, fiber optic devices by viewing directly.

In gastroentrology; Endoscopy is done in two ways,

 

1-GASTROSCOPY

 

Before the gastroscopy procedure, the patient's throat is numbed with a local drug spray and we prevent the patient from gagging and nausea during the procedure. We then perform deep sedation anesthesia to the patient via a vein, which makes the patient mild sleep. We prevent the patient from experiencing adversities such as pain, panic, excitement and stress.

It is the process of visualization of the esophagus, the stomach and duodenum (duodenum), which forms the upper digestive system. With imaging, the diagnosis, intervention and treatment of the lesions seen here are also provided.

With gastroscopy, procedures such as taking biopsy from all lesions in the stomach, removing polyp and foreign bodies and stopping bleeding are performed.

We do the diagnosis and treatment of reflux (GERD) disease, which is common in the community, by gastroscopy. Detection and grading of the damage done by the disease in the stomach and esophagus can be made.

We grade and direct the treatment of the gastric acid that escapes to the esophagus and causes reflux, with the PH-METER catheter that measures the number of escapes. In addition to the complaint of burning behind the chest, which is typical of reflux, the complaints such as cough, asthma, obsession in the throat, hoarseness, hoarseness, which we call reflux, are also guiding us in the diagnosis.

 

 

2- COLONOSCOPY:

The examination of the lower digestive system is carried out. With the entire large intestine, the last part of the small intestine is displayed. It is entered from the anus (anus). First, anal fissure (crack), fistula, hemorrhoids are observed in this area, advances in the intestine and lesions such as bleeding, ulcer, tumor, inflammation are monitored and intervened when deemed necessary. By removing polyps known as cancer precursors, they are protected from cancer that may occur in the future.

  • Those who have open or hidden bleeding from the intestine or stomach.
  • Those diagnosed with anemia (anemia),
  • Has a family history of gastric and intestinal cancer,
  • Those over the age of 50,
  • Those who have recently experienced a change in toilet habits.
  • Persistent constipation
  • Vomiting after eating
  • Prolonged diarrhea, bloody diarrhea
  • Gas and stool abductors

 To prevent possible cancer, they must undergo absolutely gastroscopy and colonoscopy.
