Endoscopy (UGI Endoscopy)

Gastroscopy is also called as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Gastric endoscopy test is a diagnostic procedure used by the physician to inspect the inside of the throat, esophagus, stomach, and upper intestine. While endoscopy test is considered as a surgical procedure, it does not involve any incision. Instead the physician will pass a flexible tube called endoscope or gastroscope through the mouth, stomach, and digestive tract. The tube has a tiny video camera mounted on its tip. It also contains a small tool that is used for taking samples. Because the opening of the mouth to small intestine is usually unobstructed, the doctor uses the endoscope to inspect the upper half of the digestive system.

  1. Weight loss, abdominal pain, chronic heart burn, and indigestion, gastritis, hiatal hernia, trouble swallowing, pain due to ulcers and problems associated with stomach, and digestive system.

Liver transplant

A liver transplant surgery is conducted to remove the diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver donated by either a living or a deceased donor. There are a huge number of people who are listed on the waiting list for a liver transplant because the availability of donated liver is limited. This is the reason why a liver transplant is an expensive procedure and is conducted only in rare cases.

    • Wilson’s disease wherein the liver accumulates copper by itself
