Department of Gastroenterology

Medisra Medical Center in Croatia is constantly improving medical and diagnostic techniques in the field of gastroenterology. Our medical center is equipped with ultramodern technology, and doctors have advanced methods of conservative and surgical treatment of digestive tract diseases.

Doctors have at their disposal equipment for unique minimally invasive procedures and reconstructive surgery; equipment for detailed 3D visualization of organs and tissues; modern drugs that are highly effective and safe for use.

Currently, the most modern diagnostic procedures in department of gastroenterology at Medisra clinic are:

  • Gastroscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) - informative instrumental research method, during which is possible to examine the condition of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.

  • Colonoscopy - exam of the large intestine, also known as the colon. As in the case of gastroscopy, a flexible probe with a micro-video camera is used. For maximum comfort, patient receives medicine so that they can sleep through a colonoscopy (don’t confuse with anesthesia). Patient falls asleep, and wakes up after procedure. If there is a suspicion of malignant tumors during colonoscopy, tissue samples can be taken for histological analysis. If polyps are found during a colonoscopy procedure they are removed immediately.

  • Virtual Colonoscopy - technique that uses a computerized tomographic scan to construct virtual images of the colon that are similar to the views of the colon obtained by direct observation by optical colonoscopy. Unlike last, virtual colonoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic method.

  • Sigmoidoscopy - examination of the inside of the rectum and sigmoid colon using an endoscope.

  • Ultrasound - visualizing internal organs. Liver, pancreas and other organs diseases are diagnosed with the help of ultrasound.

  • MRI and CT - diagnostic instrumental techniques, through which is possible to obtain a clear visualization of internal organs and tissues.

  • Laparoscopy - examination of internal organs using an endoscope, which is inserted through a small incision in the abdominal area.
