Top Medical Specialties at Daehang Hospital •    Colonoscopy •    Gastroscopy • Colon cancer • Anal fistula • Anal Fissure •    Colonoscopy  A colonoscopy is a test used to identify several changes or abnormal conditions in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. During a colonoscopy, a long tube (the colonoscope) is penetrated into the rectum. A small camera at the endpoint of this tube permits the specialist to see within the whole colon. If it is important, polyps or different sorts of irregular tissues can be taken out through the extension during a colonoscopy. Tissue tests (biopsies) can be taken during a colonoscopy, too. •    Gastroscopy Gastroscopy is the inspection of the upper digestive tract (the throat, stomach, and duodenum) with an endoscope. In this method, a long tube with a camera and a light is used to see the coating of these organs. A gastroscopy, otherwise called an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy or simply an upper endoscopy, is normally performed to explore the reasons for any abnormality, for example, a stomach ache, trouble swallowing, heartburn, vomiting, or bleeding from the abdomen, and to find a diagnosis. Conditions can be treated during gastroscopy — for instance: • Polyps can be eliminated; • Extended veins (varices) in the esophagus (food pipe) can be cured to stop bleeding; • The narrow esophagus can be extended; and • Unknown products (for example, products eaten by youngsters) can be taken out. • Colon cancer Colon cancer is a kind of cancer that starts in the large intestine (colon). In the digestive tract, the colon is the last part. Colon cancer most commonly affects adults; however, it can strike at any age.It normally starts as little, noncancerous bunches of cells known as polyps that develop within the colon. Over a long time, a portion of these polyps can lead to colon cancer. Polyps might be small and produce barely any symptoms. Consequently, specialists prescribe regular screening tests to help stop colon cancer growth by recognizing and eliminating polyps before they transform into cancer. • Anal fistula Anal fistulas are a condition in which a hole forms between the tip of the bowel and the skin close to the anus. In this way, pus may overflow, and sometimes gas or stools spill out. It is frequently hard to analyze through touch since it is common to feel the hard stem confronting the anus. Nonetheless, there is no outer sign indicating if the anal fistula is deep or not. An anal fistula is a medical procedure that involves an incomplete extraction of the sphincter. A bigger extraction can cause disorder in various functions, for example, by leaking stools. Complicated anal fistulas require definite strategies because the medical procedure should be done without touching the sphincter. Hence, it is suggested that a professional doctor with adequate experience in surgery be hired. Surgeons at Daehang Hospital are offering excellent surgeries to their patients.   • Anal Fissure Anal fissures might be the reason for pain followed by bleeding while having a bowel movement. Anal fissures are situations in which the anus is ripped apart. In serious cases, it might prompt extreme aches after a bowel movement. Anal fissure surgery needs the help of a specialist since it requires a fractional cut of the sphincter that minutely fixes the anus. For the treatment of anal fissures, the inward sphincter should be partially eliminated through surgery. The sphincter's function might be disabled if the sphincter is cut unreasonably. In this way, it is suggested that a specialist with great abilities and experience do the surgical procedure.
