Gastroenterology Treatments & Procedures


A gastroscopy also known as endoscopy is a procedure enables doctors to see inside the digestive tract with an endoscope inserted through the mouth to examine the stomach, and duodenum.

Double-Balloon Enteroscopy

Double-balloon enteroscopy is an endoscopic technique for visualization of the small bowel. It is an endoscopic technique that allows for the entire gastrointestinal tract to be visualized in real time.


Colonoscopy is a procedure that enables doctors to examine the colon for inflamed tissues, abnormal growths, ulcers using a long flexible tube with a camera inserted through the rectum.

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy procedure is a powerful diagnostic tool that helps examine the digestive tract using a tiny camera contained in a capsule, which is swallowed by the patient.


ERCP is a technique that uses endoscopy and X-rays to diagnose and treat problems of the bile ducts and main pancreatic duct, like gallstones, infections, tumors, and cancers. 


Polypectomy procedure is used by doctors to remove polyps from the inner linings of the large intestine/the colon. It is usually performed during colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy.
