The staff of the Center conducts the main spectrum of diagnostic examinations: Bronchoscopy, Gastroscopy, and Colonoscopy. If necessary, the subsidiary and corrective diagnostic methods are applied during examination: electronic chromoscopy, biopsy, endosonography (intracavitary ultrasonography by the special device).
Within the walls of our Center, the staff practices the whole range of endosurgical interventions, from the simplest, such as polypectomy, to the most complex ones, included in the list of high-tech and rare not only for the Primorsky Krai, but also for the Far East. They are as follows:
· Electrosurgical removal of tumors of different localization;
· Argon plasma evaporation of tumors of the digestive tract and respiratory system;
· Stenting (endoprosthesis) of esophagus, duodenum, biliary ducts, large intestine, trachea, and bronchi in cases of cicatricial and tumor narrowing of the above-mentioned organs;
· Probing of esophagus, trachea, large intestine, and anastomoses in benign stenoses;
· Minimally invasive treatment of esophageal achalasia (cardiospasm);
· Treatment of esophageal varices in liver cirrhosis;
· Removal of foreign bodies from esophagus, stomach, trachea, and bronchi;
· Installation and removal of cylinders from stomach in alimentary obesity;
· Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), eliminating complications from bile excretory ducts surgeries, removal of forgotten and newly formed stones from the bile ducts;
· Endoscopic treatment of pancreatic cysts.
Procedures for Providing Assistance
All the above interventions are performed on a budgetary and fee-for-service basis. To identify indications and contraindications, as well as to determine how aid should be provided, please apply to the Center Manager.
The Center's staff has a wide range of endoscopes, allowing to look almost anywhere our help is needed. We use Japanese-made Olympus equipment. The disposable and reusable instruments are used to perform diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. In a number of cases, we try not to increase the cost of examination, making them accessible to a wider range of patients.
