We provide professional support in Internal diseases.
Gazi Hospital Internal Diseases Departments provide services in nephrology, endocrinology, cardiology, rheumatology and gastroenterology as well as general internal medicine. All hospitals, medical centers and polyclinics provide patient diagnosis and treatment services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Department of Internal Medicine carries out the treatment, consultation, preoperative preparations and necessary interventions of patients hospitalized in hospitals.
With the aim of “patient” centered health service, primarily to stay healthy, it is aimed to reduce the disease risks of all our people by examining and consulting regularly. In this direction, with the understanding of multi-disciplinary service, patients are evaluated with our physicians who have the necessary senior expertise, and firstly, appropriate diagnosis and then we work for the recovery of our patients.
Gazi Hospital Gastroenterology unit is equipped with the latest technology and provides service.
The aim of the department is to provide the highest level of quality, contemporary diagnosis and treatment services to people with digestive system complaints or diseases with the support of technological innovations.
The vision of the Gastroenterology department is to be recognized as a prestigious unit in the country. For this purpose, new developments are followed and the team puts modern technology into practice by combining its own experience.
The aims of the department are to be an internationally recognized diagnosis, treatment unit and an international center where regular training and implementation of endoscopic procedures are carried out.
Gastroenterology department provides all kinds of services to patients with gastrointestinal and liver problems. Consultancy services as well as diagnosis and treatment are provided to both inpatients and outpatients. In this context, versatile service is also provided with the surgeon.
Gazi Hospital gastroenterology departments are counseling centers on hepatobiliary diseases. Leading hepatologists in their field apply innovative and comprehensive treatments that develop in all liver diseases, including complications of cirrhosis. Liver biopsy and other imaging methods are applied to the patients for diagnosis.
On the other hand, in the follow-up of chronic liver diseases, screening is required from time to time, especially in terms of tumor development, and highly developed radiology is beneficial in this regard. Gastroenterologists, surgeons and radiologists work jointly in the diagnosis and treatment of all liver diseases.
All units have lower and upper gastrointestinal video endoscopy systems and a state-of-the-art archiving system of visual documents. The units also have hemostatic devices used in emergency bleeding of the digestive system. On the other hand, the radiology department provides support to the gastroenterology department for the imaging of the liver, gall bladder and pancreas with the most advanced Computed Tomography, MRI, color Doppler system at the stage of diagnosis. All tests give extremely accurate results in determining diseases.
Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies are performed by specialist physicians in the department. In the sections seen from the mouth to the duodenum, the diagnosis of the diseases is made by taking samples from the tissue at the same time. Staining technology is effective in determining the boundaries of different wounds and finding the wound that needs biopsy. Findings are evaluated by pathologists.
In the department, all types of lower and upper endoscopies, emergency intervention and injection treatment in digestive system bleeding, sclerotherapy and band ligation in varicose bleeding, polypectomy, balloon dilatation in strictures, foreign body removal, stent placement in inoperable obstructions due to cancer, ERCP for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and liver biopsy can be done.
Diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopies are used extensively. This technique is used not only in visible or hidden digestive system bleeding, but also in the follow-up of patients with high risk of colon cancer or previous polypectomy.
Intestinal diseases and colon cancers are the most intensive patient group of our group. The team applies all new treatment systems to this special group of patients.
The most intense application area of the experienced team is endoscopic removal of polyps in large intestine polyps (polypectomy), removal of flat polyps by endoscopic resection (surgery), widening of strictures and treatment of bleeding areas.
It allows safe and emergency interventions in GI bleeding. The latest technology is used in both bleeding and other examination and treatment fields.
It is a science that deals with endocrine system physiology and thyroid diseases, diabetes, obesity, lipids, osteoporosis, adrenal gland diseases, reproductive endocrinology, pituitary diseases and hormonal autoimmune diseases. Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases provides clinical services in all service areas of Gazi Hospital.
Gazi Hospital works to increase the quality of life by meeting the education and care needs of all diabetic individuals, to provide preventive health services to individuals at risk, and to raise awareness of the entire healthcare team working within Gazi Hospital.
Effort test can be applied in two ways
a. Stress ECG test
Continuous cardiac electrocardiography of the patient suspected of stenosis of the heart vessels while walking at a fast pace on the treadmill is called an ‘effort test’.
b. Stress Echocardiography
In some special cases, the ultrasonographic examination (ECO) of the heart is taken just before and immediately after the effort test, making the accuracy of the diagnosis of heart disease even greater than the normal effort test.
4 hours of fasting is required for the stress test. It is beneficial for the patients to come with sports shoes and tracksuits, if possible.
The technique that transforms the structure of the human heart, the diameters of its cavities, the working capacity of the heart muscle, and especially the structure and functions of the heart valves, into a live image with the sound wave method is called echocardiography (ECO). No preparation or hunger is required for this test, and the entire test can be completed in a short time.
The heart rhythm is monitored and recorded for 24 hours with a device called holter. Thanks to this device, heart rhythm disorder can be diagnosed.
The blood pressure holter also records the fluctuation of the patients’ blood pressure for 24 hours, during the day, under real-life conditions, and the blood pressure values during sleep.
