Gastroenterology Department at UPMC Aut Even Hospital
At UPMC Aut Even Hospital, we are dedicated to providing patients with timely access to quality gastroenterology medicine.
Your GP may recommend that you see a gastroenterologist if you have symptoms such as:
- Stomach pain
- Ulcers, gastritis, or difficulty swallowing
- Digestive tract bleeding
- Changes in bowel habits (chronic constipation or diarrhoea)
- Polyps or growths in the colon
The main gastroenterology services provided by UPMC Aut Even Hospital are:
This procedure allows for a visual inspection of the interior of the oesophagus, stomach, and duodenum without making an incision. Requiring only mild sedation, an endoscope (a small, highly flexible tube with a tiny video camera at the end) is passed through the mouth and into the stomach.
A colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination of the large intestine (colon) to enable a visual inspection of the entire bowel and the removal or sampling of any abnormalities found.
