Colon and Endoscopy

Complementing proctology and general medicine, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract form the core of our daily practice work. They include:

  • Disorders of the upper alimentary canal, e.g.
    • Heartburn/reflux disorders
    • Inflammation of the gastric mucosa/gastritis
    • Differential diagnosis – peptic ulcer
    • Differential diagnosis – duodenal ulcer
    • Differential diagnosis – benign/malignant disorders, e.g. oesophageal or stomach cancer
    • Differential diagnosis – e.g. gluten intolerance/coeliac disease
  • Disorders of the lower alimentary canal
    • Benign tumours of the colon and rectum (polyps)
    • Malignant tumours of the colon and rectum (bowel cancer, colon cancer)
    • Inflammatory bowel disease (colitis ulcerosa/Crohn’s disease)
    • Other chronic inflammatory bowel disorders (collagenous colitis)
    • Diverticulosis and diverticular disease
  • Colorectal disorders such as
    • Radiation proctitis, especially following radiotherapy for prostate and cervical cancer
    • Colorectal inflammation following viral or bacterial infection
    • Chronic ulcers with prolapse complaints (esp. in female patients)

As a rule, these disorders can be examined and imaged very well by using a flexible endoscope. Preventive colonoscopy, which is currently covered by statutory healthcare for patients aged 55 and over, can often reveal relevant findings that require treatment.
