What is a digestive endoscopy?
Digestive endoscopy is a medical analysis to explore, visualise and treat the internal cavities of certain organs of the body. Most often, it is used for diagnosing infections, diseases or cancers related to the gastrointestinal system (duodenum, stomach, colon, rectum, etc.).
A digestive endoscopy is performed by introducing an endoscope, a tube equipped with an optical fibre, to illuminate, visualise and photograph abnormalities inside the organ. Endoscopy is also used to perform biopsies (surgical sampling), and to ablate certain anomalies (tumours, polyps, etc.). Depending on the parts to be analysed, the examination is usually performed under general anaesthesia and by natural pathways. The digestive endoscopies that we offer provide efficient diagnoses (diagnostic endoscopy). We offer two different tests: colonoscopy and digestive fibroscopy. These tests provide the most reliable analyses to determine the causes and abnormalities in the gastrointestinal system.
