Gastroenterology – Endoscopy

The activities of the Department of Gastroenterology in our Clinic cover the widest range of modern Gastroenterology and Interventional Endoscopy. More specifically, the individual activities - Departments are:

  • Regular gastroenterology clinic.
  • Endoscopy lab: diagnostic and interventional endoscopies in the upper and lower GI tract
  • ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography).

Endoscopy Lab

Upper GI tract diagnostic endoscopy (gastroscopy and duodenoscopy).

Lower GI tract diagnostic endoscopy (colonoscopy and orthosigmoidoscopy).

Upper and lower GI tract interventional endoscopy:

  • Dilation of esophageal-stomach-intestinal stenoses, either with boogies or balloons.
  • Placement of stents in esophageal-duodenal-colon stenoses. Also, we perform emergency stenting in cases of ileum (pre-operatively, to bridge to surgery: morbidity reduction – long hospital stay-reduction – enterectomy and end-to-end anastomosis at the same time)
  • Endoscopic treatment of esophageal achalasia
  • Foreign body retrieval from the upper and lower GI tract
  • Esophageal banding: chronic treatment and prevention
  • Mucosectomy of neoplasms and precancerous conditions
  • Upper and lower GI tract polyps resection.


  • Diagnostic and Magnetic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography (MRCP)
  • Interventional ERCP (sphincterotomy – stone removal – lithotripsy – placement of self-expanding plastic and metal stents – drainage tube placement).
