We offer gastroenterology procedures. The most asked are GI endoscopy, colonoscopy, and gastroenterology consultation.
GI endoscopy and colonoscopy are tests done with endoscope.
The endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny light and camera at the end. As it passes through your digestive system, the camera sends video images to a monitor. Special instruments can be passed through the endoscope to take tissue samples and perform procedures when needed. Most procedures take no more than a half hour to 45 minutes to complete.
It helps to find and prevent digestive cancer and other diseases, such as ulcers, polyps, diverticula, and bleeding, among others.
The GI endoscopy is done through the mouth, to visualize esophagus, stomach, and duodenum.
Colonoscopy is done through the anus and shows images from the rectum, colon, and ileum (final section of the thin intestine).
Both tests are done with sedation, in order to avoid traumatic experiences.
The gastroenterology consultation is related to many organs: stomach, esophagus, colon, rectum, intestines, but also liver and pancreas problems.
Common diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, perianal problems, irritable colon, and other types of colitis.
We also give treatment to Colitis ulcerative, the Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, cirrhosis, hepatitis of any type, and acute and chronic pancreatitis.
We feel passionate about therapeutic endoscopy. To accomplish it, we have very high technology equipment, and it requires a high investment.
We perform complex polypectomies, resection of gastric, esophageal or colon cancer in early stages, ligation of internal hemorrhoids, ligation of esophageal varices, treatment of upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding, placement of PEG tubes, among other procedures.
Our technics are modern and we offer reasonable prices to our patients. Specially in complex procedures, that usually are more expensive in other practices or medical centers. Very few practices in Costa Rica own the latest technology equipment that we have, for high complex procedures.
