Who needs Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a procedure where the inside of your body is examined using a long, thin tube called endoscope that is directly inserted into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail. It is also be used to carry out other tasks including imaging and minor surgery. Your doctor may recommend an endoscopy procedure to:

  • Investigate unusual signs and symptoms
  • To perform certain types of surgery
  • Confirmation of a diagnosis
  • Swallowing difficulties
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Reflux
  • Bleeding
  • Indigestion
  • Abdominal pain or chest pain

Endoscopy has relatively few risks, delivers detailed images, and is quick to carry out as it takes 15 to 60 minutes and has proven to be incredibly useful in many areas of medicine.

Endoscopy Benefits

Endoscopy is performed to diagnose or even treat conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine (duodenum). Doctors may recommend endoscopy to evaluate:

  • Stomach pain
  • Ulcers, gastritis, or difficulty swallowing
  • Digestive tract bleeding
  • Changes in bowel habits (chronic constipation or diarrhea)
  • Polyps or growths in the colon

Endoscopy is sometimes also combined with other procedures, such as an ultrasound. It can be used to place the ultrasound probe to create specialized images of the wall of your esophagus or stomach and it also helps your doctor to create images of hard-to-reach organs, such as your pancreas.

Endoscopy Recovery

An endoscopy generally is a safe procedure and the risk of serious complications is very low. After endoscopy, you may experience some mildly uncomfortable signs and symptoms such as:

  • Bloating and gas
  • Cramping
  • Sore throat

These signs and symptoms will improve with time so give yourself rest. However, consult your doctor immediately if there are any signs of infection in the area where the endoscope was inserted.

Endoscopy Cost In Pakistan

Endoscopy cost in Pakistan ranges from PKR 10,000 - 20,000. It varies depending upon the doctor, materials used and the hospital expenditure/equipment.
