Millions of people are identified with digestive diseases per year, ranging from a simple stomach problems to the potentially fatal colon cancer. The gastrointestinal system, as well as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas, are all included.
The majority of digestive illnesses are extremely complex, having modest symptoms, and most of their origins are unclear. They can be genetic or developed as a result of a combination of variables like stress, exhaustion, nutrition, or smoking. Abusing alcohol puts you at the greatest risk of developing digestive problems.
A clear and detailed medical history and physical examination are required to arrive at a conclusion. Some patients may require more detailed medical tests. Those who specialise in the field are called gastroenterologists
Following all of your doctor’s directions on the day before your digestive health treatment and to contact your physician if you’ve any concerns about your treatment.

Bronchoscopy is a procedure which is used to identify lung disorders or to identify the nature of persistent coughing or bleeding.
365 days a year, a non-sedated bronchoscopic treatment for long-term control of severe asthma.
Endoscopic Bronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)
To detect lung cancer and lesions, EBUS uses ultrasound technology to view objects in and around the bronchial tree and lungs.
Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP)
ERCP stands for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram and is used to diagnose illnesses of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas.
Esophageal Manometry/PH Monitoring
Manometry is a non-sedated method for diagnosing swallowing problems, acid reflux, and chest pain.
A flexible sigmoidoscopy is a test that evaluates the large intestine’s lower section (colon).
