Diagonsis of Gastric dieases

We are committed to ensuring that your experience with us is relaxed and worry-free, right from consultation through recovery. The first step is to reach an accurate diagnosis of digestive disorder. We begin this by undertaking a thorough medical history, understanding the symptoms you have experienced, and note down any other pertinent information that you share that will help accurately diagnose the condition. A physical examination is also carried out to help assess the problem more thoroughly. However, many patients require a more extensive diagnostic evaluation through a laboratory test, imaging studies, and endoscopic procedures, which will help us identify the underlying condition more accurately. We provide specialized diagnosis and therapeutic procedures and services to diagnose and treat patients with a wide variety of gastrointestinal disorders. Our centre is equipped with cutting-edge gastroenterology equipment to support diagnosis and treatment and thereby provide the best possible patient care. We provide the best treatment and care for digestive disorders and related conditions. Some vital diagnostic procedures that we offer to help diagnose and treat gastrointestinal and liver conditions include the following:

Image Tests

  • Colorectal transit study – This test helps in understanding how well food moves through the colon.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan – Detailed images of the body, including details of the bones, muscles, fat, and organs, can be obtained via CT, which is an imaging test that uses X-rays and computers.
  • Defecography – This is used to identify completeness of stool elimination and any anorectal abnormalities. It evaluates the rectal muscle contraction and relaxation utilizing the X-ray of the anorectal area.
  • Barium enema – It is a test used to examine the large intestine, lower parts of the small intestine, and rectum using X-ray. It can identify strictures (narrowed areas), blocks or obstructions, and other problems.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – It is a diagnostic test that produces detailed imaging of organs and structures within the body using a combination of large magnets, radio frequencies, and a computer.
  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) – This test uses a combination of radio waves and magnets and is used to view the bile ducts.
  • Oropharyngeal motility study – The patient is provided with small amounts of barium liquid to drink, and later, a series of X-rays are taken to evaluate what happens as the liquid is swallowed.
  • Ultrasound – This test used high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissues, and organs.

Other Procedures

  • Anorectalmanometry – This is used for evaluating anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung disease, among other problems, by determining the strength of the muscles in the rectum and anus.
  • Oesophageal manometry – This is used to provide a complete view of the oesophagus to assess its function and is better over conventional manometric studies.
  • Oesophageal pH monitoring study – This study is recommended for patients with Gastroenterology Reflux Disorder (GERD) or Acid reflux and who do not respond to the usual antacid treatments.
  • Capsule endoscopy – This is a minimally invasive technique that is used to investigate small bowel and oesophagus.
  • Gastric manometry – This is used for measuring electrical and muscular activity in the stomach.

Endoscopic Procedures

  • Colonoscopy – This is used in screening for polyps and colon cancer and intestinal bleeding, and inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – This is used for the diagnosis of any problems in the gallbladder, pancreas, bile duct, and liver and uses the power of X-ray and endoscope to diagnose the underlying condition.
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy – This is used to examine the inside of the oesophagus, stomach, and duodenum using an endoscope.
  • Sigmoidoscopy – This is used for identifying the causes of diarrhoea, abdominal pain, constipation, bleeding, and any abnormal growth in the intestine by examining the inside of a portion of the large intestine.
  • Upper endoscopy – This is a minimally invasive technique used to directly visualize the upper gastrointestinal tract for evaluation of disorders, including acid reflux, trouble swallowing, abdominal pain, and celiac disease.

Laboratory Tests

  • Faecal occult blood test – The faecal occult blood test (FOBT) is a laboratory test that is used to check for the presence of hidden (occult) blood in the stool sample. Blood in the stool may indicate haemorrhoids, colorectal cancer, or other conditions.
  • Stool culture – This is a test that is used to identify the presence of bacteria that causes infection in the lower GI tract.

Treatment of Gastric dieases

Our team performs surgical treatment of diseases associated with the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, hepatobiliary system, oesophagus, stomach, and upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. However, not all patients would require surgery. We begin with initial investigations and recommend medicines/drugs to alleviate the condition. We advise and perform endoscopic evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract to correctly identifying the underlying cause of the disease or condition and then personalize the treatment for every patient.

Procedure

Our specialists perform a range of nonsurgical procedures. This can include:

  • Endoscopic ultrasounds to examine some internal organs and the upper and lower GI tract
  • Colonoscopies which helps to detect colon cancer or colon polyps
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography to identify tumors, gallstones, or scar tissue in the bile duct area
  • Sigmoidoscopies which helps to evaluate blood loss or pain in the bowel
  • Liver biopsies help to assess inflammation and fibrosis
  • Capsule endoscopies help to examine the small intestine
  • Double-balloon enteroscopy help to examine the small intestine
