Endoscopic specialties

Endoscopy is a non-surgical process carried out by doctors to examine the patient’s digestive tract. The experts use a flexible tube known as endoscopy that has a light and camera fixed to it during the process. It helps the gastroenterologist take a few pictures of the inner areas of your digestive tract on a color TV. 

Gastroenterology specialist at Sahyadri Hospital has been recognized internationally for their experience and expertise in treating a patient of digestive disorders. They collaboratively work with other team member, trained staff and nurses to provide appropriate treatment to every individual. Our work division provides several endoscopic procedures option to the patients, they are mentioned below:

  • Diagnostic Therapeutic Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy includes performing diagnosis and therapeutic measures of a wide range of upper gastrointestinal tracts. These upper GI tracts include organ-like the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. However, to perform such a high-quality examination, the doctor must have mastered a variety of cognitive and technical aspects. It is the technical components upon which our doctors base all the therapeutic interventions of the disorders. 

During the process, the doctor passes the instrument through the mouth and throat of the patient, which then enters the esophagus. The doctors carefully examine all the areas of the esophagus and move into the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine. It helps the gastroenterologist detect the reason for stomach pain, digestive tract bleeding, or any signs of an ulcer. 

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic lower gastrointestinal endoscopy colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a process carried out by individuals to find any signs of change or abnormalities in the rectum or large intestine. You may also need to go through the process in conditions of pregnancy, heart problems, lung issues, allergies, and diabetes. 

In the process, our highly trained doctors insert a long thin tube into your body to examine the internal tissue or organ from close. Once you are sedated, the doctor will push the colonoscope into your anus, which passes through the rectum into your colon. The camera records everything and shows the images into the monitor for the doctors to check for any abnormalities. Moreover, once the colonoscope has reached its position, the professionals inflate the colon using carbon dioxide to better view the internal organs. The whole process takes a time of 15 to 60 minutes. 

  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound 

It is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the gastroenterologist to take images and extract information about the patient’s digestive tract. It also helps the doctor get a close view of the surrounding tissues and organs of the tract. During the process, the doctors insert a small, flexible and light tube into the lower digestive tract of the patient. The camera attached to the instrument takes the pictures, which is then showed on a color monitor to get more accurate and detailed information of the body. 

It helps in many reasons, like:

  1. To evaluate the cancer stage, 
  2. Study abnormalities in the liver and gallbladder, 
  3. Determine the cause of fecal incontinence, 
  4. Evaluate chronic pancreas disorder, and study nodules. 
  • Advance therapeutic ERCP

Advance therapeutic ERCP is a type of study of the duct that leads to the drainage of the pancreas and liver. Ducts is from where the pancreas and liver drain. The drainage duct of the pancreas is known as a pancreatic duct. On the other hand, the drainage duct of the liver is known as a biliary duct. When these join together, it drains everything into the upper bowel part of the stomach. The opening from where they drain is known as papilla. Once drained, it becomes very easy for the doctors to perform tests and look into the gastrointestinal areas of the intestines, and stomach. It also helps to look into organs like the pancreas, liver and gall bladder. 

Well-versed doctors mainly carry it out to look for many conditions. Like stent placement, sphincterotomy, stone removal, balloon dilation, and tissue sampling. It also helps the doctors to look for any scars, cancer or leaks due to trauma or surgery. 

  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic single balloon enteroscopy

Enteroscopy is a process that our highly experienced doctors undertake to diagnose and treat the digestive system. In the process, the doctors insert a flexible thin tube with an attached camera into the body, also known as endoscopes. Moreover, one balloon is attached to it, which inflates when the doctors want to have a close view of the stomach, esophagus, and a part of the small intestine. The professional may also use a scissor or forceps to extract a tissue sample for biopsy. 

Our professionals carry it out to look for a tumor in the small intestine, the reason for abnormal bleeding in the gastrointestinal area and to count the number of WBC. 

  • Endoscopic treatment for obesity

We also offer our patients the option of endoscopic treatment for obesity. As the number of cases of problems relating to obesity is increasing, it is very important to help people by offering an uncomplicated, safe and non-surgical process of reducing weight. It gives the advantage of easy and fast recovery to patients with no signs of a scar. 

In the process, the doctors use a thin, flexible tube and push it down through the mouth into the stomach. The instrument is also followed by some other instrument that can help make stitches and take pictures through a tiny camera. 

Pediatric Specialties

Our hospital also has a multidisciplinary team of pediatric gastroenterologists who have years of experience treating children with nutritional, liver and digestive system problems. Children’s liver, digestive and nutritional disorders are very different from those of adults. So we know it is very important for doctors to have the required training and experience.

Our gastroenterologists have treated children of all range from newborn to teen. They also are highly trained on how to use endoscopes to examine the internals of children. Moreover, they have extensive expertise in diagnosing and treating nutritional problems in kids. This includes checking intravenous nutrition, managing feeding tubes, and treating liver disease.

Gastroenterological Cancers

Gastrointestinal cancer can include cancer in any of the organs. This includes liver, stomach, intestine, gut, pancreas, esophagus, gall bladder, anus, colon, bile duct, rectum, etc. Cancer develops when a mass or ulcer starts to grow within the walls of the stomach. If not cured, it starts to spread diffusely inside, causing different kinds of cancer. 

So if you experience any abnormal GI symptoms, you can come to us. Our specialist knows how difficult it is to diagnose cancer. Thus we offer the following facilities to ensure to detect cancer before it’s too late:

  • Different endoscopy to check inner organs
  • Colonoscopy to look for cancer or polyps in the colon and rectum
  • Biopsy by extracting abnormal tissue to confirm cancer cells
