Gastroenterology deals with diseases affecting the digestive system and its associated glandular organs (oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary tract and pancreas). It also deals with the impact that diseases affecting the digestive system have on the rest of the human body as well as the impact that diseases affecting the rest of the body have on the digestive system.
Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a vital part of this medical specialty since numerous diagnoses can be made by means of inserting an endoscope; it also enables the treatment of various diseases that affect the digestive tract.
The Gastroenterology Unit also offers its patients a complete range of services in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Some of the advantages that patients will experience are:
▪ They will be treated by SPECIALISTS IN GASTROINTESTINAL ENDOSCOPY.
▪ The examinations will be carried out in an operating theatre; patients will receive SEDATION BY AN ANESTHETIST during the procedure, after which they will be monitored in an adjacent RECOVERY ROOM until they recover.
▪ Endoscopes are cleaned and disinfected in an automatic washer, thus guaranteeing the HIGHEST LEVEL OF CLEANING AND DISINFECTION.
