General Surgery Advanced Treatment and Facilities Hospital in Hyderabad
Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad offers a wide range of treatments and houses experts for various fields of medicine. In order to achieve the best results from a procedure, we invest in technologies and facilities that will make sure that our patients do not experience any dissatisfaction. Our advanced facilities include:
Endoscopy: It is a non-surgical procedure that is used to examine the digestive tract of a patient in order to evaluate problems associated with stomach pain, diagnosing polyps, etc. It may also be used for the management of emergencies such as variceal bleeding, application of thermal current or hemoclips, treatment of bleeding peptic ulcers, etc. In the procedure, an endoscope – a flexible tube with a light and video camera is used to look at the internal digestive tract. At Yashoda Hospitals, we use the best endoscopy technology and equipment to get the most accurate findings.
Colonoscopy: It is a procedure similar to endoscopy. The key difference is that colonoscopy is used to investigate the lower portion of the digestive tract – the large intestine (colon) and the rectum. During the process, a flexible tube with a camera is inserted into the rectum. The main purpose of a colonoscopy is to investigate intestinal signs and symptoms, look for polyps, and most importantly – to screen for colon cancer. The department of general surgery at Yashoda Hospitals has the best and most experienced professionals to make this process smooth and minimize discomfort.
ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography): It is a procedure that is used to diagnose diseases in the liver, pancreas, biliary systems, and gallbladder. It can also be used for treating biliopancreatic disorders. In the process, our team of professionals uses a special endoscope to determine the location where the bile duct opens into the small intestine and inserts a catheter into the duct, and squirts in a contrast agent while X-rays are taken. The agent allows the doctor to see the bile ducts, the gallbladder, and the pancreatic duct on the X-rays. At Yashoda Hospitals, we ensure you get the best treatment.
PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy): It is an endoscopic medical procedure that is deemed an effective and safe technique used to provide food, liquids, and sometimes medication to a patient directly to the stomach via the abdominal wall when oral intake is not the adequate way for providing nutrition. In Hyderabad, Yashoda Hospitals has the best professionals to assist the patient in the case that they have a PEG tube inserted through the stomach via the abdominal wall for enteral feeding.
Minimally Invasive: Also known as laparoscopic surgeries, expert surgeons at Yashoda Hospitals specialize in performing surgeries wherein they only make minimal incisions in order to decrease the wound healing time and therefore the risk of infection. This treatment is most appreciated by patients.
How is endoscopy performed?
Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a flexible tube (an endoscope) with a light and camera which is inserted into the mouth and then goes through part of the alimentary canal as the doctor guides it to provide an accurate picture of what is going on in the digestive tract.
