Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Endoscopy


The Centre for Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Endoscopy at Paideia International Hospital is a centre of excellence for its expert specialists, state-of-the-art equipment and exceptional patient care.

The aim of the multidisciplinary team – made up of gastroenterologists, endoscopists, hepatologists, surgeons, oncologists, internists, radiologists, immunologists, haematologists and infectious disease specialists – is to provide a customised and precise approach to treat each gastrointestinal pathology.

Multi-professional care ensures precise diagnosis and careful guidance at all stages of the disease in order to improve the response to treatment. The services include specialist gastroenterological examinations, diagnostic and operative gastrointestinal endoscopy examinations and colorectal cancer prevention.

Endoscopic procedures are performed in three dedicated endoscopy/operating rooms equipped with the latest generation of high-definition (HD) endoscopic instruments equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) for lesion identification and electronic chromo-endoscopy (ECE) for lesion characterisation. All endoscopic examinations, both diagnostic and operative, are performed completely painlessly, under anaesthesia (deep sedation), under the supervision of experienced anaesthetists.

The Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Endoscopy unit is also a centre for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer

Paideia International Hospital’s Colorectal Cancer Prevention Programme is aimed at men and women aged from 50 to 75 and from 40 for the relatives of patients who already suffer from colorectal cancer. This is an active prevention  programme involving the search for and immediate removal of neoplastic lesions by means of colonoscopy.

Alternatively, neoplastic lesions can be searched for by means of a virtual colonoscopy with CT or MRI, or “advanced” neoplastic lesions by means of an faecal immunochemical faecal test for hidden blood performed every 2 years.  If the test is positive, a total colonoscopy should be performed. Any lesions detected can then be removed immediately during the examination or – if large or “complex” – with a subsequent colonoscopy or surgery.

Subsequent endoscopic examinations will be determined according to international guidelines, based on the number, size and histological examination of the removed lesions.

Asymptomatic patients, for the prevention of colorectal cancer:

At our centre,  the type of screening can be customised based on the patient’s characteristics and needs. In addition, those who enter the prevention programme are followed up over time, obtaining the best possible protection against colorectal cancer.
