An endoscopy is a medical procedure that allows specialists to visualise internal structures and organs via an ‘endoscope’ – a long, flexible cable with a light and camera at the end of it.
Here in MISA Mombasa Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor. This allows the diagnosis of common conditions. It also allows the treatment of many conditions associated with the digestive tract. The conditions most commonly found and treated with endoscopy are;
Stomach pain, heartburn
Ulcers, gastritis, or difficulty swallowing
Vomiting blood or passing blood in the stool
Changes in bowel habits (chronic constipation and diarrhea)
