A cutting-edge procedure offered at Meliora Healthcare that can transform the way we understand your digestive health.
How Video Capsule Endoscopy Works
Here's a simple breakdown of the procedure:
- Swallowing the Capsule: At Meliora Healthcare, you'll swallow a small capsule that's about the size of a vitamin pill. This capsule contains a tiny camera, a little light, and a transmitter. Swallowing it is easy and doesn't require any sedation or anesthesia.
- Wireless Imaging: As the capsule moves through your digestive system, it takes lots of pictures and videos. These images are sent wirelessly to a small recorder that you wear on your belt.
- Complete View: The capsule camera shows our Meliora Healthcare doctors everything, from your esophagus to your stomach and most importantly your small intestine, an area which cannot be reached by endoscopy. It provides a level of detail that traditional methods can't match.
