Gastroenterology Surgery Procedures

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) : Here a camera and a long flexible tube with a light along with an endoscope at the end of it is used. This is done through the stomach, the esophagus and the duodenum (first part of the small intestine). The dye is injected through the common bile duct when an endoscope reaches the papilla (the opening of the common bile duct). This process enables the physician to take x-rays. The procedure is meant for those who develops jaundice or experience abdominal pain. Scar tissue that is blocking the bile duct, tumors or gallstones can be easily identified through this procedure.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy : This procedure enables the physician to study the sigmoid colon from inside. The colon (the large bowel) is gastrointestinal tracts’s last portion. The section of the colon closest to the anus and rectum is known as the sigmoid. The sigmoid colon is 20 inches of the colon which is 4 feet in length. The basic function of the colon is to store the byproducts of the food till they get eliminated. The purpose of flexible sigmoidoscopies is to assess  the changes in bowel habits, blood loss and pain.

Colonoscopy : The large bowel, also referred to as colon, is the gastrointestinal tracts’s last portion. Colonoscopy is the procedure where a colonoscope is used for examining the colon. While inserting the scope, a small amount of air is put inside the colon. The physician can take pictures of the colon and can also guide the colonoscope throughout the length of the colon.  The procedure is used for evaluating abdominal pain, changes in bowel habits and blood loss. The procedure is performed in the prevention and screening of colorectal cancer.

Capsule Endoscopy : The procedure is useful in examining the complete small intestine. A vitamin pill- sized video capsule is ingested having its own light source and camera. The images are then sent by the video capsule  that is travelling through the entire body. The images then can be seen on the waist belt which the patient is wearing having a data recorder. The procedure helps in determining the persistent or recurrent symptoms like anemia bleeding, abdominal pain or diarrhea that cannot be diagnosed with the techniques of x-rays, endoscopy and colonoscopy.

Liver Biopsy : The procedure is used for determining any presence of fibrosis, inflammation and is also used for diagnosing the liver diseases.

Endoscopic Untrasonography (EUS) : The procedure is used for examining the lower or upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. Gallbladder and pancreas are the internal organs that can also be examined through this procedure.

Double Balloon Enteroscopy : The procedure is performed for examining small intestine where the earlier techniques are not able to reach. A high resolution video endoscope is used having latex balloons. These balloons are attached at the tips and can be deflated and inflated with air through a system of pressure controlled pump. Deflation or inflation cycles help in advancing more into the small intestine. The procedure is used for Crohn’s disease, gastrointestinal bleeding and unexplained diarrhea.

Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy : This procedure in concerned with the upper part of the GI (Gastrointestinal tract) that includes stomach, duodenum and esophagus.  The procedure is performed for diagnosing and evaluating the problems like abdominal or stomach pain, tumors and ulcers, bleeding, difficulty in swallowing and chronic heartburn.
