Jehangir Hospital has launched a new state-of-the-art advanced endoscopy center. The advanced endoscopy center includes the latest Exera 3 video endoscopy system with 190 series endoscopes, which provide clear benefits such as dual focus, brighter and higher contrast narrowband imaging and improved image quality that are invaluable in early diagnosis of GI cancers and classification of colon and gastric polyps without the need for biopsies. It also helps diagnose cancer at an early stage, using these systems and skills to remove early cancers or precancerous lesions, even without the need for surgery. The new scopes also feature an integrated water jet channel that provides endoscopists with clearer vision during hemostasis in patients with active bleeding or during complex therapeutic procedures. said Vinod Sawantwadkar, CEO of Jehangir Hospital.
The center is launched to deliver world-class patient experiences by providing a total solution to all GI issues and interventions in one place, avoiding the unnecessary movement of patients or equipment to the OR for advanced therapeutic procedures.
