Laparoscopic Surgery in Pune

Endoscopy is the insertion of a long, thin tube directly into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail. It can also be used to carry out other tasks including imaging and minor surgery.

Endoscopes are minimally invasive and can be inserted into the openings of the body such as the mouth or anus.

Because modern endoscopy has relatively few risks, delivers detailed images, and is quick to carry out, it has proven incredibly useful in many areas of medicine. Today, tens of millions of endoscopies are carried out each year.

Endoscopy Surgery in Pune

Indication of endoscopy

There are three main reasons for carrying out an endoscopy:

  • Investigation
  • If an individual is experiencing vomiting, abdominal pain, breathing disorders, stomach ulcers, difficulty swallowing, or gastrointestinal bleeding, for example an endoscope can be used to search for a cause.

  • Confirmation of a diagnosis
  • Endoscopy can be used to carry out a biopsy to confirm a diagnosis of cancer or other diseases.

  • Removal of foreign body
  • Children accidentally swallow foreign body by mouth and needs removal.

  • Treatment
  • An endoscope can be used to treat an illness directly; for instance, endoscopy can be used to cauterize (seal using heat) a bleeding vessel or remove a polyp.

    Modern endoscopes are sometimes fitted with sensitive lights that use narrow band imaging. This type of imaging uses specific blue and green wavelengths that allow the doctor to spot precancerous conditions more easily.

Risks and side effects

Endoscopy is a relatively safe procedure, but there are certain risks involved. Risks depend on the area that is being examined.

  • Over-sedation, although sedation is not always necessary
  • Feeling bloated for a short time after the procedure
