Diagnostics and therapy in modern gastroenterology

  • Endoscopic ultrasound drains in pancreatic cysts
  • Oesophageal, anorectal, colonic motility studies
  • Lactose or glucose breath test
  • Blood, feces (fecal elastase, calprotectine, parasitological), urine laboratory tests
  • Radiographies, CT, RNM, colangio-pancreatic-RNM, also with hormonal stimulation of secretions
  • Ultrasound with or without contrast medium, transcutaneous or percutaneous endoscopic.

Doctor-patient relations

Particular attention is dedicated to customization of services and cures.
Medics of this unit work together with other specialists to treat conditions in a multidisciplinary team and choose the most appropriate therapy; this also happens during multidisciplinary meetings about the condition, with other colleagues like surgeons, anatomo-pathologists, oncologists, radiologists, endoscopists.


In order to improve communication between patient and doctor, a project was created in 2014: the nurse represents the point of reference for the patient during all the stay.


At the beginning of the stay, the patient is “assigned” to a “tutor nurse” who will be his spokesman for his necessities, interpreting and taking care of his needs.
