SOS Gastroenterologist can identify diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract and initiate a treatment, when necessary, or point out the possible occurrence of conditions that mimic gastrointestinal disorders and seek the assistance of the relevant specialist.
Besides a simple clinical examination, the gastroenterologist can insert or replace a nasogastric feeding tube (Levin) in bed. It is also possible to conduct more invasive medical procedures such as changing a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube. If you require laboratory tests (blood tests) or an imaging test while in bed (e.g. radiograph or ultrasound), the doctor may request the assistance of the respective specialists.
If an endoscopic control is necessary (gastroscopy, colonoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound), it is possible to perform it in large private centers.
