Capsule endoscopy

We are working hard to provide cutting edge medical care that has been proven internationally.


Capsule endoscopy is now available for the first time in Kenya. This state of the art technology is used to examine the small intestine. A camera the size of a capsule is swallowed and pictures are taken and evaluated to diagnose various conditions.

It commonly used is situations where a normal endoscopy or colonoscopy cannot find the diagnosis of an intestinal condition. These are situations where a small intestine problem is suspected such as a bleeding lesion.

A colon problem can also be diagnosed using a special type of capsule. This can be done in cases where a normal colonoscopy is not an option.
