      Colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination of the lower gastrointestinal tract. During this procedure, a flexible tube with a camera (endoscope) is passed through the anus to the large intestine. This procedure provides a visual diagnosis and grants the opportunity for biopsy. Colonoscopy is the only sure way to diagnose intestinal diseases.

      Since the level of tolerance for the colonoscopy procedure is individual, it can also be performed using general anesthesia. In this case, before and during the procedure, the anesthetist will inject a special drug into your blood vessel. After the procedure, you will remain sleepy for a while, so you have to lie down for 30 to 60 minutes.

      Gastroscopy is an endoscopic examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract. During this procedure, a thin, elastic tube with a camera (endoscope) is passed through the mouth to the esophagus, followed by the stomach and then into the duodenum. During the procedure, the physician assesses the condition of the internal organs and, if necessary, takes a tissue sample (biopsy). Gastroscopic examination is painless but may be unpleasant due to pharyngeal reflex.
