The department of internal medicine (gastroenterology) with the endoscopy unit at Teknon Medical Center Barcelona is Spain's most modern and complete department of digestive endoscopy. The department has been providing quality medical services since 1988. The department is characterised by consistently delivering high-quality endoscopy using the most advanced technology and employing the best experts in every area of digestive endoscopy. A medical team of more than 20 gastroenterologists specialising in endoscopy offers and performs all diagnostic and treatment methods. In many cases, doctors use innovative methods developed and implemented in the department. The department has an extensive infrastructure, consisting of 7 endoscopy rooms with 15 boxes, allowing doctors to provide care to patients with maximum accuracy and without delay.
Endoscopists and gastroenterologists of the department have exceptional experience in the endoscopic treatment of benign neoplasms, diverticula, fistulas and abscesses of gastrointestinal organs. In addition, doctors specialise in treating obesity with a swallowable balloon or endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty. Since colorectal cancer is the 3rd most common cancer, doctors focus on early diagnosis and timely treatment.
