The Endoscopy department at Hospital Sanitas CIMA is on floor 2 of the main building. The Digestive Endoscopy Unit is responsible for carrying out the examinations of the digestive tract and the interventions arising therefrom.
The examination is conducted using the video endoscope, a flexible tube with an optical system making it possible to see inside the digestive tract on a monitor, which is fed through the mouth (gastroscopy) or the anus (colonoscopy) enabling direct observation of a significant portion of the digestive tract.
With this technique, the development of polyps or lumps can also be controlled. If a polyp is observed, it can be removed (polypectomy) with some special forceps designed for this , to be sent for histological study.
The most frequent reasons for requesting this test are as follows:
The IDIS delivers the QH quality certification in 3 star category to the Sanitas La Zarzuela, Sanitas La Moraleja and Sanitas CIMA Hospital
It is equipped with a cutting-edge neonatal ICU with a breastfeeding area, three delivery rooms and a caesarean operating theatre.
