SAMITIVEJ AND SANO HOSPITALS TEAM UP TO BRING INNOVATIVE
GI ENDOSCOPY TO THAILAND
Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital celebrates the First Anniversary of its Liver and Digestive Institute, a
collaboration with Japanese Hospital SANO. The Institute specializes in endoscopy, full-cycle
diagnostic services, and treatment of liver and gastrointestinal diseases.
SANO Hospital introduced Narrow Band Image International Colorectal Endoscopic Classification
(NICE) using magnification to Samitivej Hospital. With the use of green and blue lights enhancing
details, other aspects of gastrointestinal endoscopy efficiency is increased, and offers the following benefits:
- Enables early detection of colorectal diseases, even in the absence of physical tumors
- Provides more accurate diagnoses which leads to more precise treatments
- Shortens medical procedures, promotes faster recovery and reduces complications,
with no need for patients to stay at the hospital
- If abnormalities are detected, biopsies can be taken safely, with no need for unnecessary surgery
Few doctors in Thailand were capable of carrying out such a complicated technique like the Narrow
Band Imaging with magnification. Every doctor working at Samitivej’s Liver and Digestive Institute is
now trained in this technique. We are excited to raise the standards of our practice even higher.
