State-of-the-art tests and equipment such as urea breath test (UBT) and disposable biliary pancreatoscope ‘SpyGlass DS’ introduced
Sun Medical Center Gastroenterology Center opened and started operating its Therapeutic Endoscopy Clinic, which uses state-of-the-art equipment and tests.
As the Therapeutic Endoscopy Clinic treats diseases of all digestive organs (esophagus, stomach, duodenum, upper small intestine, large intestine, biliary tract, pancreatic islet) reachable by endoscopy, doctors who have acquired knowledge and skills in specialized fields such as the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and pancreatic biliary tract, provide high-quality medical care.
Endoscopic resection for various tumors is the main focus, and in the case of sudden gastrointestinal bleeding, the bleeding site can be confirmed through examination and hemostasis treatment suitable for the characteristics of the lesion.
In addition, diseases occurring in the pancreatobiliary tract (gallstones, other stones, strictures, biliary tract cancer, etc.) can be treated using ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) and disposable biliary pancreatoscope SpyGlass DS.
In addition, with the introduction of the IR Force 200, a urea breath test (UBT) device that can conveniently, accurately and quickly test with only breathing, confirmation of helicobacter pylori infection is possible in the hospital itself, meaning that faster results can be provided to patients, enabling faster treatment.
Regarding the opening of the clinic, Lim Chang Beom, director of the gastroenterology center expressed his opinion, saying, “The opening of the clinic is very meaningful, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to provide better care through the establishment of a new medical facility.” He added, “We will pursue a patient-centered treatment method and strive to provide more individualized treatment services.”
