Endoscopy

Endoscopy means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside the body for medical reasons. The word endoscopy derives from the Greek word endoscópesis, a compound word consisting of éndon, which means inside and scopeín, which means to watch carefully.

Endoscopy may also be used to effectively treat a digestive tract problem. For example, the endoscope might not only detect active bleeding from an ulcer, but devices can be passed through the endoscope that can stop the bleeding. In the colon, polyps can be removed through the scope to prevent the development of colon cancer.

Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy procedures are usually performed by gastroenterology specialists (Gastroenterologists). Surgeons with some training can also perform endoscopic procedures. However, it is advisable that they be preferably performed by trained specialists. 

Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

Gastrointestinal Endoscopy refers to examination of the inner lining and organs of the digestive system by a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor.

Gastroscopy

To perform a Gastroscopy (also known as upper GI endoscopy), an endoscope is easily passed through the mouth and throat and into the esophagus (food pipe), stomach, and upper part of the small intestine, in order to thoroughly exmine each part for an accurate diagnosis.

Colonoscopy

To perform a Colonoscopy (also known as lower GI endoscopy), an endoscope is passed into the large intestine (colon) through the anus and rectum to examine this area of the intestine. This procedure is called Sigmoidoscopy or Colonoscopy depending on how far up the colon is examined.

ERCP

ERCP A special form of endoscopy called Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreaticography (ERCP), allows visualisation of the pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and related structures, so that various treatments such as removal of bile duct stones or treating cancers with placement of internal stents can be carried out.

Endoscopic ultrasound

Endoscopic ultrasound or EUS combines endoscopy and ultrasound examination, to obtain images and information about various parts of the digestive tract. This is today the most frequently used modality to diagnose and stage various cancers of the digestive system. The EUS endoscope is also used to aspirate, collect samples or take biopsies from such cancers for accurate diagnosis prior to surgery or chemotherapy.

Colposcopy

Colposcopy is an out-patient procedure in which the cervix (mouth of the uterus) is examined by your doctor under magnification.  By applying various mild chemical solutions to the cervix, early diagnosis of infections and cancer can be carried out. In case any suspicious areas are seen, biopsies (small samples) can also be taken under local anaesthesia.

Hysteroscopy

This is an endoscopic procedure to visualize the interior of the uterine cavity. Office hysteroscopy can be performed under mild sedation with minimum discomfort to the patient. Any type of growths like uterine polyps in the uterine cavity can be biopsied or removed. The inner lining of the uterus, also known as the endometrium can be visualised and suspicious areas can be biopsied under vision especially for diagnosis of hormonal imbalance or suspected malignancies (cancers) . Even a misplaced copper-T can be removed or replaced with ease. Hysteroscopy also plays an important role in the evaluation of the infertility.
