Endoscopy Unit

"More and more treatments can be performed through digestive endoscopy, without resorting to surgery. They are performed on an outpatient basis and are less aggressive".

DR. JOSE MARÍA RIESCO LÓPEZ
PERSON IN CHARGE. ENDOSCOPY UNIT

The Endoscopy Unit is integrated within the Digestive Department of the Clinica Universidad de Navarra.

Its work is directed towards the diagnosis of different pathologies associated with the digestive system.

Some of the diagnostic tests that the Unit performs are: conventional colonoscopy, gastroscopy, capsule enteroscopy, capsule colonoscopy and echoendoscopy.

The specialists who make up the Endoscopy Unit hold periodic joint sessions where cases of special complexity are studied, the most relevant scientific advances are continually reviewed and the results themselves are evaluated.
