Gastroenterology deals with digestive health. Partner clinics provide consulting, diagnosis and treatment services for various digestive problems. Diseases of the digestive tract fall into the field of expertise of gastroenterologists: gastroenterologists investigate the causes of diseases related to the stomach, bowels, liver and pancreas and choose the optimal treatment, while also trying to prevent relapses by providing preventive counseling.
- ENDOSCOPY: this procedure is used for investigating stomach diseases such as ulcer and gastritis and to detect bleeding of the digestive tract etc. Basically, endoscopic interventions cause very little or no pain at all. Colonoscopy is recommended for early detection of colon cancer.
- ABDOMINAL SURGERY: Abdominal surgery refers to interventions on the digestive tract – esophagus, stomach, intestines, spleen, liver and pancreas. Innovative surgery uses minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy, which spares you the discomfort caused by traditional large-size surgery.
- TREATMENT OF GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE: Many people experience this discomfort and a considerable number of them need medication, surgery or nutritional counseling. Biopsy, gastric acid measurement and monitoring of esophageal movement provide important background information in establishing individualized treatment.
