DIGESTIVE ENDOSCOPY


The Digestive Endoscopy Unit is equipped with the most sophisticated material which enables us to carry out the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures currently available.

The presence of an anaesthetist exclusively for this unit allows the carrying out of explorations under deep sedation, the patient being asleep the time the test is being run and recovering to his/her normal life again afterwards.

Besides the basic diagnostic procedures such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy, ileoscopy or retrograde endoscopic cholangio-pancreatography, other therapeutic procedures are also usually carried out, such as: pneumatic or balloon dilation, oesophageal variceal ligation, treatment of digestive haemorrhage, polyp resection, removal of stones in the bile duct and implant of prostheses.

Currently, protocols are being carried out for two new techniques: the placement of an intra-gastric balloon to control morbid obesity and endoscopic treatment of hiatal hernias through a plication in the cardia (Endocinch method).
