Gastrointestinal, pancreatic and liver diseases have become so common in the current era. We provide compassionate and empathic care with our latest medicines, advanced endoscopy, intensive care and liver transplant services. Our surgical team is excellent and laparoscopic surgeries are performed routinely for all kinds of complex abdominal problems. An excellent support from radiology, pathology and microbiology team provides timely input which will help us to practice evidence based medicine.
Endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, During the upper endoscopy, a flexible tube is passed through the mouth and throat and into the esophagus. It allows the doctor to view the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine. Your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor. If needed biopsy is also taken, it is usualy done for patients suffering with difficulty in swallowing, abdominal pain, indigestion, vomitings and heart burn
Colonoscopy is a long flexible tube which is introduced through anus and into the large intestine. It is used to detect any kind of problems like colorectal cancer, polyps, ulcer, diverticular or bleeding piles. Accordingly, necessary treatment will be give. Screening colonoscopy is used early detection of polyps and prevention of colorectal cancers at a very early stage.
ERCP is a special and advanced endoscopy procedure most commonly performed to diagnose and treat various diseases that affect pancreas and bile ducts like pancreatitis, pancreatic stones and strictures, bile duct stones and cancers, obstructive jaundice. Patients suffering with jaundice or having abnormal liver tests or found to have problems in the pancreas and bile duct on other imaging tests like ultrasound or CT scan or MRI will further undergo ERCP. With this ERCP, stones can be removed pancreatic and bile ducts and stents (plastic/metal) can be placed.
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a minimally invasive procedure to assess various diseases including cancers affecting the digestive tract. A special endoscope that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the lining and walls of the digestive tract and adjacent organs like pancreas and liver, lymph nodes, gallbladde and bile ducts etc. EUS is used commonly to identify tiny bile duct stones, pancreatitis and can obtain FNAC from the lymph nodes and tumors in pancreas, bile duct, gallbladder, lymph node and stomach. It is also used to treat pancreatic pseudocyst (Cystogastrostomy). In patients with cancers in the pancreas and abdomen, EUS can accurately deliver the pain control medications into the regional nerves around the tumors (celiac plexus neurolysis/block.
FibroScan is a non-invasive device that assesses the hardness of the liver via the technique of transient elastography. Liver hardness is evaluated by measuring the velocity of a vibration wave generated on the skin over the liver. This is used for patients to detect problems and damage in the liver at a very early stage, which cannot pick them on regular ultrasound or other blood tests. It is used to patients who take or consume alcohol suffering hepatitis b or hepatitis c virus infection or having fatty liver. Fibroscan is helpful in avoiding liver biopsy in patients suffering with hepatitis and can be repeated at regular time intervals to monitor disease response to treatment
Breath test including hydrogen breath test and Ammonia breath tests are used to explore various GI diseases like functional bowel disorders including small bowel bacterial overgrowth, lactose intolerance, food allergies, Helicobacter pylori infection, abdominal bloating, indigestion etc.In these tests, patient's breath sample is collected and analysed. It is a very simple and noninvasive method to detect various GI diseases
