Endoscopy is a high-precision diagnostic method that allows examination of the gastrointestinal tract.
- Upper endoscopy or gastroscopy
- Lower endoscopy or colonoscopy
Gastroscopy is a method of examining the upper digestive tract or a part of it. The examination allows for early detection of changes in the esophagus, stomach, 12-finger intestine and minor operations such as polyps removal during endoscopy. If necessary, tissue samples are taken for further morphological examination (biopsy). Anesthesia may be used to eliminate discomfort during the examination.
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination method of the large intestine, which allows early detection of changes in the intestinal mucosa and obtaining tissue samples for morphological examination. Colonoscopy is performed through the anus. The examination does not cause discomfort – it is done under intravenous anesthesia. Following the procedure, the patient is briefly staying in the day hospital until complete anesthesia.
Please note the total cost consists of the procedure itself, the intravenous anesthesia and the day hospital ward. During the examination, a tissue sample may be collected for further laboratory examination or, in addition, the cost of biopsy. More information by phone by phone 67752254 or sign .
