Endoscopic procedures and surgeries proved to be the most effective method of diagnosis and treatment of many diseases of internal organs. Long metal or plastic tubes with cameras and lights used to carry out endoscopic examinations are called endoscopes. It is a unique method which allows carrying out diagnosis and surgical treatment simultaneously.
The specialists of the 6th City Clinical Hospital successfully apply capsule endoscopy. It is the latest endoscopic technique.
Standard endoscopic procedures are thought to cause discomfort and even painful. On the contrary, capsule endoscopy is a painless and safe procedure. A patient swallows a pill-size capsule, which contains a tiny camera and a source of light. Information is transmitted with the help of the special sensors, hanging on a patient’s waist. The examination takes for about 10 hours. After that, the capsule passes through feces. A patient should keep up with daily routine (sleep, eat, etc.).
The specialists of the 6th City Clinical Hospital were among the first specialists in Belarus, who started to use capsule endoscopy to diagnose and treat:
- unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding;
- enteritis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome;
- rapid weight loss;
- prolonged diarrhea, etc.
