Dr. Medda operates in Sardinia and in all provinces including that of Olbia, Cagliari, Oristano, Nuoro and Carbonia Iglesias. His expertise lies in conducting digestive endoscopy, oesophageal gastro duodenoscopy, testing for Helicobacter and other biopsies.
Digestive endoscopy is a diagnostic and therapeutic technique which provides a direct view of some organs from the inside. This method allows you to check for the presence of alterations or lesions and to perform minor surgeries for removal of polyps, stopping digestive bleeding, palliation of advanced tumors, cauterization and biopsies.
The endoscopy is done using specific instruments (endoscopes) consisting a small flexible tube, with thin optical fibers inside, which are inserted in the body through the natural cavity: the mouth or the anus, depending on the area to explore. The most commonly performed tests with this technique are gastroscopy, for studying the esophagus, stomach & duodenum and colonoscopy, to view the bowel.
