DRHC Dubai Gastroenterology Clinic

Endoscopy in Dubai at DRHC


Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows our gastroenterologists to examine the interior lining of the digestive tract using a flexible tube with a light and camera attached (endoscope). At DRHC Dubai, we offer comprehensive endoscopy services to diagnose and treat various gastrointestinal conditions.

Types of Endoscopy

  1. Upper Endoscopy (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, EGD): This procedure examines the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine).
  2. Colonoscopy: A procedure to examine the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
  3. Flexible Sigmoidoscopy: A shorter version of a colonoscopy that examines the rectum and lower part of the colon.
  4. Capsule Endoscopy: A small capsule with a camera inside is swallowed to take pictures of the digestive tract.
  5. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP): Combines endoscopy and X-rays to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas.

Indications for Endoscopy

  • Abdominal pain
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Persistent nausea or vomiting
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Screening for colon cancer

Benefits of Endoscopy

  • Early detection: Allows for early detection and treatment of gastrointestinal conditions.
  • Accuracy: Provides high-resolution images for accurate diagnosis.
  • Minimally invasive: Generally, less discomfort and a shorter recovery period compared to traditional surgery.
  • Treatment: Can be used to perform certain treatments such as polyp removal, dilation of strictures, and control of bleeding.

Endoscopy Procedure

  1. Preparation: You may need to fast for a period before the procedure and take a laxative to cleanse the colon for colonoscopy.
  2. Anesthesia: Sedation or anesthesia may be given to make you more comfortable during the procedure.
  3. Insertion of Endoscope: The endoscope is carefully inserted through the mouth (for upper endoscopy) or rectum (for colonoscopy).
  4. Visualization: The camera on the endoscope sends images to a monitor for the gastroenterologist to examine.
  5. Treatment: If needed, certain treatments can be performed during the procedure, such as biopsy, polyp removal, or dilation of strictures.
  6. Recovery: After the procedure, you will be monitored until the effects of the sedation wear off. You may experience some bloating or cramping but can usually resume normal activities the next day.
