Experienced gastroenterologists at Kamineni Hospitals perform several procedures to diagnose, treat and manage various gastrointestinal diseases. We offer comprehensive treatment for patients using both medical and surgical procedures.
Endoscopy
Gastroenterologists use endoscopy procedures to look inside the patient’s body. It helps doctors to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. During the process, a gastroenterologist uses a camera attached to a long, thin tube called an endoscope to look inside the body. Gastroenterologists directly insert endoscopes through the mouth, down the throat, and into the oesophagus. From there it sends pictures back to a screen for monitoring.
This process will be carried out under the influence of anaesthesia. Gastroenterologist specialists at kamineni Hospital perform endoscopy procedures to find out and analyze various gastrointestinal conditions such as,
Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy
Both procedures are performed by inserting a tube into the rectum rather than the mouth. Colonoscopy is one type of endoscopic examination of the large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel. The flexible inserted into the body through the rectum consists of a CCD camera or a fibre-optic camera.
A colonoscopy helps in examining the whole large bowel. This type of procedure provides visual diagnosis and enables doctors to perform biopsies or removal of suspected colorectal cancer lesions.
Sigmoidoscopy is also considered a minimally invasive process. Gastroenterologists use this procedure to examine the large intestine from the rectum through the nearest part of the colon, the sigmoid colon. There are two types: flexible and rigid sigmoidoscopy. It only helps in examining up to the sigmoid.
Gastroenterologists perform these procedures to find out things like
Polypectomy
Gastroenterologists use this procedure to remove one or more polyps from the lining of the bowel. Polyps are abnormal growth of tissue projecting from a mucous membrane. A medical specialist will either remove the polyps with a wire loop forceps or use an electric current to burn them off during the colonoscopy procedure. Polyps commonly occur in the colon, stomach, nose, ear, urinary bladder, and uterus.
Esophageal dilation
This procedure is done on patients who are suffering from swallowing food, or when food feels like being stuck in the chest region. Which often leads to discomfort and pain throughout the day. The reason behind this condition is the reflux of stomach acid in patients with heartburn.
This procedure allows gastroenterologists to dilate, and stretch a narrowed area of your esophagus which is a swallowing tube. The medical specialist may use various techniques for this procedure as a part of a sedated endoscopy. This procedure helps doctors to treat gastrointestinal conditions like

SUBSPECIALTIES

TREATMENT AND PROCEDURES

Splenectomy
In this procedure, gastroenterologists make an incision to remove the spleen from the patient’s body. It is an organ, located under your rib cage on the upper left side of your abdomen. The spleen helps fight infection and filters unneeded material such as old or damaged blood cells from your blood.
Whipple Procedure
This procedure is mainly performed by gastroenterology surgeons to remove cancerous tumours from the head of the pancreas. Which is the first part of the small intestine, the gallbladder, and the bile duct. The pancreas plays an important role in the human body, especially in indigestion. The pancreas produces hormones that help you digest food and stimulate sugar levels.
Cholecystectomy
Cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive procedure carried out to remove the gallbladder. Which is a small pear-shaped organ placed just below your liver that stores and collects bile. It is mainly carried out to treat gallstones and minimize the complications they cause. Patients can be treated and discharged on the same day as it is one of the common surgical procedures.
Nissen Fundoplication
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that causes stomach acid reversal. As a result, your stomach content tends to flow right up into the patient’s oesophagus. Gastroenterology surgeons perform this type of surgery to prevent stomach acid reflux. They do this through surgery that tightens the joint section between the oesophagus and stomach.
