Endoscopy

Your intestinal health

Endoscopy is the name for an in-depth examination of hollow organs such as the stomach and intestines using an endoscope. The gastroscopy (optical examination of the stomach and intestines) and coloscopy (optical examination of the colon) and also the anoscopy (optical examination of the anal canal) are for example endoscopic examinations. These examinations are used for both the prevention and early diagnosis of illnesses as well as the diagnosis of existing complaints in the gastrointestinal tract.

The endoscopy is carried out using modern video endoscopes from Olympus – with image documentation during the examination and findings afterwards. The surgery hygiene is in accordance with international guidelines and is constantly checked. Disposable articles are used during the endoscopy procedure.

You can flexibly put together your own personal health module from the different individual treatments. You are welcome to preselect these with your GP. As each individual treatment includes a consultation with a doctor we can refine and complete your selection during this.

Coloscopy

Coloscopy is the optical examination of the entire colon and the last part of the intestines, if required. We explain all possibilities on offer for the preparation of the intestines prior to the examination and which method is most suited to your personal circumstances. We also give you the necessary medicine for preparation. The examination is always carried out under analgesia (sedation). By request and in certain circumstances, the coloscopy can also be carried out using deeper sedation for which an anaesthetist must be present. After the treatment, you can rest in our quiet room where we will regularly check on you.
