Gastroenterologists

Gastroenterologists
Gastroenterology is the field of medicine that deals with problems and disorders of the digestive system. Some common procedures performed by Mexicali gastroenterologists are:

Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy, technically known as esophagogastroduonenoscopy, is a diagnostic procedure that is used to visualize the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is performed with an endoscope, it doesn’t require incisions in major organs or body cavities, and it requires very little time for recovery.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy, also known as coloscopy, is a diagnostic procedure that is used to visualize the large bowel and part of the small bowel. It is also performed with an endoscope and it’s used to detect ulcerations, polyps and similar problems.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Flexible sigmoidoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the large intestine from the rectum to the colon. Unlike rigid sigmoidoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy uses a flexible endoscope. While the procedure is similar to a colonoscopy, the difference is that a sigmoidoscopy only examines up to the most distal part of the colon, while an endoscopy examines the whole large bowel.

Liver Biopsy

Liver biopsy is a procedure that involves the removal of liver tissue, which is then used for testing and diagnosing liver diseases or conditions. It can be performed through a needle that goes through the skin or through direct abdominal surgery, depending on the conditions of the patient.

Further procedures will depend on the results of these diagnostic procedures. To learn more about other gastroenterology procedures available in Mexicali, please fill out a “Find a Doctor” form on this site and be connected with a qualified medical professional in Mexicali.
