Endoscopy literally means 'looking inside'. This is done with an endoscope, a thin flexible tube with a very small camera built into the end. The endoscope is usually introduced into the gastrointestinal tract through the anus or through the mouth. There are different types of endoscopic examinations and all examinations require special preparation.
The endoscopy of St. Vincentius Hospital is a high equipped room where patients are treated by an internist with the use of endoscopes.
