Therapeutic Endoscopy

A therapeutic endoscopic procedure provides treatment that is carried out via the endoscope. A procedure, which starts as a diagnostic or screening endoscopy, may become a therapeutic endoscopy depending on what is visualized during the procedure. An example is the finding and removal of polyps during a colonoscopy or treating a peptic ulcer that is bleeding.


Some of the therapeutic endoscopic services we provide are:s

  • Endoscopic hemostasis
  • Foreign body removal
  • Polypectomy
  • Stenting
  • Variceal banding
  • Endoscopic mucosal resection
  • Endoscopic ablation


Bareilly Pediatrics and Gastro Institute aims at providing advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy services at affordable prices.

Therapeutic endoscopy facilities available at Bareilly PGI include

  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) - ERCP is a technique that combines the use of endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat certain problems of the biliary or pancreatic ductal systems.
  • Endoscopic Dilation - Esophageal dilation is a procedure that allows dilatation, or stretching, of a narrowed area of the esophagus.

  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) - Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a technique using sound waves, known as ultrasound, during an endoscopic procedure to look at or through the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. This technique allows physicians to see organs and structures not typically visible during traditional endoscopy procedures, such as the layers of the gastrointestinal tract wall, the liver, pancreas, lymph nodes, and bile ducts.
  • Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) - Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a endoscopic procedure in which a flexible tube is placed into a patient’s stomach and/or small intestine to allow nutrition, fluids and/or medication to pass directly into the stomach or small intestine when a patient is not able to meet his or her nutritional needs orally due to a medical condition.

What happens during a therapeutic endoscopy?

A therapeutic endoscopy usually takes about 30 minutes. We may offer you a sedative to help you relax, or spray local anaesthetic on the back of your throat meaning this area will be numb throughout the procedure.

A small mouth guard will be placed between your teeth to protect them.

Your consultant will place a flexible tube called an endoscope into the back of your throat and down into your stomach. You may be asked to swallow to help guide the tube. From here the endoscope can pass on into your duodenum. They will be able to treat problems in these organs. The endoscope will not interfere with your breathing but initially you may experience a retching sensation. If you have a lot of saliva, suction similar to that used at the dentist may be used.

Your consultant will also be able to perform biopsies and take photographs to help treat you. When the treatment is complete your consultant will gently remove the endoscope.
