Our gastroenterology department offers a wide range of diagnostic and treatment options for conditions that affect the digestive system and its related organs. Some of the treatments commonly used in our hospital include:
Medications: Our Gastroenterologists often prescribe medications to treat digestive system disorders. These can include antacids, proton pump inhibitors, antibiotics, and immunosuppressive drugs, among others.
Endoscopic procedures: Endoscopy is a technique used to examine the inside of the digestive tract using a flexible tube with a camera on the end. Gastroenterologists can use endoscopy to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including ulcers, polyps, and cancers.
Colonoscopy: It is a medical procedure that allows doctors to examine the inside of the large intestine (colon) and rectum. During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube with a camera on the end (called a colonoscope) is inserted through the rectum and advanced through the entire length of the colon. The camera allows the doctor to examine the lining of the colon for any abnormalities, such as polyps, ulcers, or tumours.
Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat digestive system disorders. Our gastroenterologists work closely with surgeons to develop treatment plans that incorporate surgical intervention as needed.
Lifestyle changes: Gastroenterologists also provide guidance on lifestyle changes that can improve digestive health. These can include changes to diet, exercise habits, and stress management techniques.
