How to prepare for some examinations
If you are scheduling by telephone or in person, ask – you can get advice, if you are scheduling by email, advice will be sent to you. The preparation depends on the type of examination which is planned.
Should I bring some findings?
It is recommended that you bring all previous findings with you (medical report, laboratory analyses, results of X-ray, magnetic resonance and the rest of your medical documentation).
What does a gastroenterologist (or gastrohepatologist) do?
He deals with the system of digestive organs and attached organs. He will ask you to do some laboratory analyses, he will perform or schedule an ultrasound examination, and propose and perform gastroscopy if necessary.
If necessary, he will propose an x-ray examination or MRI, which you can schedule with our nurses in the Badawi Polyclinic easily and quickly.
You can also schedule gastroscopy at the Badawi Polyclinic.
This is a diagnostic procedure in which a specialist uses an optical instrument to examine the mucosa of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, notes any changes and performs biopsy as necessary, i.e. takes small tissue fragments for further diagnostics (helicobacter pylori, ulcers, cancer, etc.). The procedure is painless, but queasy patients may experience short-term discomfort.
Of course, all this is done to determine a more successful treatment. Gastroenterologist will, through check-ups, monitor your course of treatment and healing.
