Procedure

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a procedure which allows a doctor to look inside the large intestine which includes the rectum and colon. It provides an endoscopic look into the patient’s large intestine. It is one of the best ways to examine your body for any signs of colon cancer.

Colonoscopy is a unique procedure. It is the only procedure which allows a doctor or colorectal specialist to examine the patient’s colon for signs of cancerous polyps and immediately remove it from the colon. It also enables the doctor to detect and analyse any other abnormalities in the patient’s colon which cannot be easily observed in an X-ray. Colonoscopy procedure is mostly recommended for people over who are 50 and older.

People who observe abdominal pain, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhoea and rectal bleeding are encouraged to get a Colonoscopy. It helps rule out and prevent the advent of many dangerous diseases.

People who conduct periodic screenings are able to detect signs of colorectal cancer earlier and help remove polyps as and when they appear. This will help avoid the need for chemotherapy or any other severe procedures to remove the tumors.

Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy is an operation procedure that uses a slim, flexible tube known as an endoscope to look into the oesophagus, stomache and beginning of the small intestine which is called the duodenum. This thin tube has a lens and a light source which is connected to a video screen. It will provide images for the doctor to see and analyse the condition of the stomache. Gastroscopy is also known as upper GI endoscopy.

A Gastroscopy can help you determine the main cause for a wide variety of symptoms including upper abdominal pain, nausea, or difficulty swallowing. It helps detect cases of internal bleeding and most importantly bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract.The precision levels of a Gastroscopy procedure are higher than that of an X-ray for discovering inflammation, ulcers and tumours. A Gastroscopy specialist typically takes about 5 -10 minutes to complete the procedure.

Sigmoidoscopy

Sigmoidoscopy is specifically designed to examine the sigmoid colon which is the last third of the colon while descending. The colon is the organ which helps you absorb all the healthy things like water and nutrients for the smooth functioning of your body. It is also where your stool is stored.

A Sigmoidoscopy procedure is recommended when the patient has the following symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Colon and rectal cancer
  • Changes in bowel habits

The doctor uses a sigmoidoscope a long, flexible tube with a half an inch diameter. It gives direct and clear visual of the rectum and the lower part of the colon.

In most cases doctors tend to recommend a Colonoscopy. This usually happens when they are unable to say which part of the colon is causing problems. But if it is almost certain that the problem is because of the sigmoid colon, which is when the doctor recommends a Sigmoidoscopy.

A Sigmoidoscopy also known as a flexible Sigmoidoscopy, allows a doctor to look into the sigmoid colon and detect the causes for a variety of pains and discomfort including:

  • ulcers
  • polyps
  • abnormal cells
  • cancer

Colon Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is a procedure which is opted for by people to promote a healthy colon. The procedure is also known as colonic irrigation or colon flush because it literally flushes all the toxins, hardened faecal matter and other wastes out of the body.

Many people forget the importance of smooth bowel movements. It is crucial for maintaining a healthy body. Research says, the colon is considered to be the most neglected part of the human body. It plays a huge role in protecting the human body from diseases and if it is neglected for too long the large amounts of toxic wastes will reduce the overall functioning of the body.

Colon Hydrotherapy is a practice which involves gently rinsing your colon with warm water to remove remaining faecal Colon matter, gas, mucus, toxins and any other excessive waste. It is a procedure which allows nutrients present in food to be easily absorbed and leaves the patient feeling rejuvenated.

It may seem like an odd form of treatment. But it is one actually that is approved and regularly used by thousands of people from all around the world. The more you learn about the treatment the better you will feel about using it regularly for a healthy body. It is a great way to take care of your physical and mental health.

MRI Defecography

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Defecography is a non-invasive test that uses magnetic resonance to obtain visuals of various stages of defecation and note how the pelvic muscles are used to understand the rectal functioning of the individual. It is mainly used to help determine the presence of more uncomfortable or painful problems like faecal incontinence, constipation, and even more serious conditions like pelvic organ prolapse. These diseases invariably affect the patient’s ability to pass stool.

MRI Defecography procedure uses an MRI machine to study the working of the pelvic muscles of a patient while passing stool to understand why he or she might be facing any difficulties.

Defecography, also called evacuation proctography, is a crucial tool in the colorectal field. It helps proclaimed colorectal surgeons like Dr. Parameshwar CM understand the source of the patient’s problem and enables him to give them more accurate lifestyle and diet changes that they can apply to their daily lives. It provides important details about how the various muscles of the anal canal, rectum, colon, the vagina and pelvis work with each other. If there is any form of discrepancy the MRI Defecography will be able to determine where the problem is occurring enabling the colorectal specialist to give more focused prescriptions and remedies.

MRI Defecography is one of the most essential tests in constipation which helps determine whether the problem occurs because the path is obstructed or because of slow movement within the colon. It even helps discover if it is a combination of both.

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedures conducted by colorectal surgeons like Dr. Parameshwar CM. It is used to examine a patient’s digestive tract. An endoscopy can be used to understand the root cause behind a wide range of symptoms including difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), constant pain in abdomen, quick weight change, vomiting, continuous diarrhoea etc.

The colorectal surgeon uses an endoscope which is a flexible thin tube with a light and an attached camera to take pictures and videos of inside the patient’s digestive tract and transmits it onto a video monitor. This procedure is called an endoscopy.

With the help of flexible endoscopy will be able to look directly, to observe and diagnose a wide range of colorectal and anal diseases and disorders. This also includes catching more severe diseases like ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, polyps  and colorectal cancer.etc.

ENDOSCOPY ADVANTAGES

  • Polyps can be caught and removed easily.
  • Dangerous foreign bodies can be caught on camera and removed.
  • Easy Biopsies to aid in complex diagnosis.
  • Relieve life threatening conditions like Sigmoid Volvulus.
  • Helps avoid surgery in many cases.
