Endoscopy

Today, endoscopy is counted among the most innovative fields of medicine. Endoscopy means “looking into the interior of the human body”. Extremely sharp images and videos allow for a precise diagnosis and therapy.

There are two main types of endoscopy (examinations by means of a speculum): gastroscopy (examination of the stomach) and colonoscopy (examination of the intestines).

Medicum offers you:

  • Endoscopic preventive care
  • Gastroscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Rectoscopy
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and jejunostomy (PEJ – placement of feeding tubes into stomach and small intestine)
  • Endoscopy with anaesthesia or sedoanalgesia

The use of a sedating and analgesic injection before any endo-scopic examination is a matter of course.

Safety and comfort of our patients have high priority at meDi-cum.

For this reason, we offer you the chance to “sleep through” a colonoscopy or gastroscopy with utmost relaxation. This is a “light anaesthesia”. You fall asleep relaxed and wake up re-laxed.

This sedoanalgesia is carried out by a separate specialist. This anaesthesiologist and intensive care specialist is responsible for your comfort and your safety during the entire examination (20-40 min), and the examining physician can concentrate en-tirely on the examination as such.

During a sedoanalgesia, you completely lose consciousness, just as with an anaesthesia. We guarantee that you will not notice anything. Yet, other than with an anaesthesia, you breathe spon-taneously and need no artificial respiration.

After the examination, you will feel fit again and be able to go home within half an hour.
