Capsule endoscopy is a state-of-the-art diagnostic method used to detect problems in the gastrointestinal system. In this procedure, a small capsule is swallowed, which navigates through your digestive system, capturing images and collecting data. Capsule endoscopy offers a more comfortable and non-invasive option compared to traditional endoscopy.
As the Department of Gastroenterology under the supervision of Associate Professor Dr. Muharrem Taşkoparan, we provide capsule endoscopy services with our expert team and modern medical equipment. This method allows visualization of the small intestine, which cannot be reached by upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. It can help identify various issues such as gastrointestinal bleeding of unknown origin, Crohn's disease, and problems related to the stomach, intestines, and digestive system, enabling us to determine your treatment plan.
Capsule endoscopy is an effective method for detecting many gastrointestinal problems, including peptic ulcers, Crohn's disease, colon polyps, gastrointestinal bleeding, and tumors. It is used in cases of prolonged diarrhea and abdominal pain. Additionally, we have a significant advantage in treating diseases that can be diagnosed at an early stage with capsule endoscopy.
