My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Endoscopy is a medical procedure that utilizes an instrument named endoscope so as to inspect the patient's internal organs without performing a surgery. Endoscopy is a broad name, below which numerous others, for instance, colonoscopy, gastroenterology, hysteroscopy and, sigmoidoscopy are covered. Kinds of endoscopy are rely on the organ inspected and the route through which endoscope accesses one's body. 

Preparation

Similar to several different procedures, the initial phase prior to your endoscopy is to let your specialist know about your medical circumstances and medications. Particularly blood-thinners, for example, aspirin usage should be stopped so as to ensure that your procedure will be carried out without difficulties. In addition, fasting for a few hours before and maybe taking laxatives to clean your system is a necessity for several kinds of endoscopy, for example, upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy or colonoscopy.

How It Is Performed

There are numerous kinds of endoscopy, consisting of: 
•Upper endoscopy / upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy/gastroscopy – an endoscope accesses your body over your mouth and examineyour upper digestive system up to small intestine 
•Colonoscopy – accesses your body over your anus and examine your colon
•Sigmoidoscopy– likewise concentrated onthe sigmoidal part of your colon 
•Enteroscopy – concentrated on yoursmall bowel 
•Hysteroscopy – an endoscope is placed into the uterus to scan for origins of uncommon bleeding
•Capsule endoscopy – a novel, experimental method,inwhich endoscope is swallowed by a patient in the form of a capsule.  

Mostly, endoscopy is carried outwithout general anesthesia; occasionally, local anesthesia is given.

Recovery

An endoscopy has no recovery period. In case of being under local or general anesthesia, after your endoscopy, someone should drive you home. A few people may feel disturbed quite a while after colonoscopy and other kinds of endoscopy, where the endoscope is placed over the anus. However, it should cease in a day.

Risks

Although endoscopy is a somewhat safe and non-invasive technique, it might lead to a few complications. These consist of drilling of organ and internal bleeding along with infection. In any case, complications accompanying endoscopy are uncommon.
