About Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the digestive system, which includes the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Our experienced gastroenterologists are trained to manage a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions and are dedicated to improving your quality of life through effective medical interventions.

We offer a comprehensive range of services to address your digestive health needs:

  • Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: State-of-the-art endoscopic procedures to diagnose and treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers, and more.
  • Colonoscopy: Vital screenings for early detection of colorectal cancer, as well as diagnosis and treatment of conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and diverticulitis.
  • Liver and Pancreatic Care: Expert evaluation and management of liver and pancreatic disorders, including hepatitis, fatty liver disease, and pancreatic insufficiency.
  • Gastrointestinal Motility: Diagnosis and treatment of motility disorders that affect the movement of food through the digestive tract.
  • Nutritional Support: Customized dietary recommendations and guidance for managing gastrointestinal conditions that impact your nutritional intake.
  • Digestive Health Maintenance: Preventive care and screenings to maintain your digestive health and catch potential issues early.

About Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) is a cutting-edge diagnostic procedure that combines endoscopy and ultrasound technology. It allows our experts to visualize and assess the walls of the gastrointestinal tract and nearby organs in incredible detail. This procedure is highly valuable for diagnosing and staging various conditions, including cancers, cysts, masses, and other abnormalities, with unmatched accuracy.

At Shanti Gopal Hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of EUS services to meet your diagnostic and treatment needs:

  • Diagnostic EUS: Our skilled specialists use EUS to visualize and assess abnormalities in the digestive and respiratory systems, aiding in the accurate diagnosis of a variety of medical conditions.
  • EUS-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA): EUS-FNA is a minimally invasive technique that allows for the collection of tissue samples from suspicious areas for accurate pathological analysis.
  • EUS-Guided Interventions: EUS can be used to guide therapeutic procedures, such as draining fluid collections, placing stents, and performing biopsies, often avoiding the need for open surgery.
  • Staging and Cancer Assessment: EUS is highly effective in staging and determining the extent of cancers, aiding in treatment planning and improving patient outcomes.
  • Detailed Imaging: The high-resolution ultrasound images obtained through EUS provide detailed information about the structures and layers of organs, leading to more accurate diagnoses.

About Manometry

Manometry is a sophisticated diagnostic procedure that measures the pressures and movements within your gastrointestinal tract. By analyzing the muscular contractions and coordination of your digestive organs, our experts can identify abnormalities that might be causing symptoms such as difficulty swallowing, heartburn, and other gastrointestinal issues.

At Shanti Gopal Hospital, our Manometry Services encompass a range of diagnostic techniques to address your needs:

  • Esophageal Manometry: This procedure assesses the function of your esophagus and its ability to propel food into your stomach, helping to diagnose conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and achalasia.
  • Anorectal Manometry: Anorectal manometry evaluates the function of your rectum and anal sphincters, aiding in the diagnosis of conditions such as fecal incontinence and chronic constipation.
  • High-Resolution Manometry (HRM): This advanced technique offers enhanced precision by providing detailed pressure measurements in different sections of the esophagus or anal canal, enabling more accurate diagnoses.
  • Motility Testing: Manometry allows us to evaluate the muscular contractions that move food and waste through your digestive system, aiding in diagnosing motility disorders.

About the Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) Procedure

The Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) Procedure is a minimally invasive surgical technique designed to treat esophageal motility disorders that affect the smooth muscle function of the esophagus. Conditions like achalasia, achalasia variants, and other esophageal spasms can lead to swallowing difficulties, pain, and discomfort. The POEM procedure aims to provide relief by creating a controlled incision in the inner lining of the esophagus to release tension and improve food passage.

  • Minimally Invasive: The POEM procedure is performed through the mouth, eliminating the need for external incisions, resulting in less scarring and faster recovery.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Patients experience less pain and discomfort compared to traditional surgical approaches.
  • Shorter Hospital Stay: Most patients can expect to be discharged within a day or two after the procedure.
  • Improved Swallowing: The POEM procedure significantly improves the ability to swallow, reducing symptoms such as regurgitation and chest pain.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients can return to their normal activities sooner compared to open surgery.
  • Safe and Effective: The POEM procedure has shown to be safe and effective in treating various esophageal motility disorders.

About Submucosal Tunnel Endoscopic Resection (STER)

Submucosal Tunnel Endoscopic Resection (STER) is a revolutionary technique that combines endoscopy and surgical principles to remove lesions or tumors located beneath the mucosal layer of the gastrointestinal tract. This minimally invasive procedure offers a less intrusive alternative to traditional surgery, resulting in shorter recovery times and reduced postoperative complications.

At Shanti Gopal Hospital, our STER Services encompass a range of treatment options tailored to your specific needs:

  • Esophageal Lesion Resection: STER is effective in removing esophageal lesions and tumors, promoting improved swallowing function and overall well-being.
  • Gastric Tumor Resection: STER is utilized to treat tumors within the stomach, allowing for precise removal while preserving the integrity of surrounding tissues.
  • Colorectal Lesion Resection: STER offers a minimally invasive approach to removing colorectal lesions and polyps, reducing the need for traditional surgery.
  • Gastrointestinal Submucosal Tumors: STER can be used to safely remove submucosal tumors without the need for extensive incisions.

About Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule Endoscopy is a revolutionary procedure that involves swallowing a small, disposable capsule containing a camera. As the capsule travels through your digestive tract, it captures high-quality images of your esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon. These images are then transmitted to a recorder worn on your body, allowing our experts to analyze the images and gain valuable insights into your gastrointestinal health.

At Shanti Gopal Hospital, our Capsule Endoscopy Services offer a comprehensive range of benefits:

  • Complete Visualization: Capsule Endoscopy provides a comprehensive view of the entire digestive tract, allowing for accurate assessments of various conditions.
  • Diagnosis of Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Capsule Endoscopy is particularly effective in diagnosing sources of bleeding that may be difficult to detect using other methods.
  • Small Bowel Examination: Capsule Endoscopy is an ideal solution for visualizing the small intestine, which is often challenging to assess with traditional endoscopy.
  • Crohn's Disease and Other Conditions: Capsule Endoscopy aids in diagnosing inflammatory bowel diseases, small bowel tumors, and other conditions affecting the digestive tract.

About Double Balloon Enteroscopy

Double Balloon Enteroscopy is an innovative procedure that allows us to examine the entire length of the small intestine. With the use of specialized endoscopes equipped with inflatable balloons, we can navigate the twists and turns of the small intestine to visualize and diagnose conditions that were previously challenging to access.

At Shanti Gopal Hospital, our Double Balloon Enteroscopy Services offer a comprehensive range of benefits:

  • Full Small Bowel Examination: Double Balloon Enteroscopy enables us to visualize the entire small intestine, aiding in the diagnosis of conditions that may have gone undetected.
  • Diagnosis of Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding: This procedure is highly effective in identifying the source of gastrointestinal bleeding that is difficult to diagnose through other methods.
  • Small Intestine Lesions and Tumors: Double Balloon Enteroscopy aids in diagnosing and evaluating small intestine lesions, tumors, and other abnormalities.
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Assessment: This procedure provides valuable insights into inflammatory bowel diseases affecting the small intestine, such as Crohn's disease.
