Endoscopy Asia Centre of Excellence, the first-choice destination for anyone needing endoscopic procedures for diseases related to gastro-intestinal tract, pancreas and biliary system, was inaugurated by His Holiness Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev of Isha Foundation at Sion, Mumbai. Endoscopy Asia is a unique combination of world-class technology, profound experience and expertise, which is conceived by Dr. Vipulroy Rathod (M.S., FASGE), who has done pioneering work in  the field of endoscopic ultrasound ( EUS ) in India.

 

On a 24X7 basis, Endoscopy Asia will provide the entire spectrum of endoscopic procedures and make them more affordable and easily available to patients of different socio-economic classes. It is the first facility in India and this part of Asia to be equipped with the first-generation universal Olympus Endoscopic Ultrasound Center EU-ME1, which has the ability to provide the entire range of Diagnostic & Interventional Gastrointestinal and Pancreato-Biliary Endoscopy. Most of the patients can undergo endoscopic procedures for diagnosis and treatment on a day care basis. Endoscopic procedures reduces the cost of hospital stay and the need for pain medication and costly antibiotic usage.

 

Dr. Vipulroy Rathod, Consultant Endoscopic Surgeon, Endoscopy Asia, said, "With its 'Caring with Excellence' mantra, Endoscopy Asia epitomizes international standards of excellence, care and consistent quality in Gastroenterology and Endoscopy. It pushes the frontiers in medical education and research effecting cost-reductions up to 40% in several endoscopic procedures for the patients. Its inclusive philosophy will encourage the participation of all like-minded medical professionals to take the art and science of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy to the next level."

 

Endoscopy Asia aims to familiarize and broaden the horizon of clinical application of Endoscopy and especially Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) in India. It aims to make Endoscopy the preferred modality of diagnosis and treatment for a majority of Gastrointestinal and Pancreato-Biliary diseases. Though technically demanding and complex, EUS is a first choice and one-stop procedure to provide all patients with detailed, useful, accurate and cost-effective non-surgical assessment of certain diseases.

 

The state-of-the-art tertiary care endoscopic infrastructure at Endoscopy Asia will also enhance India's global stature by facilitating the institutional development of education and research capabilities. Now, through Endoscopy Asia, Mumbai is 'connected' to the best medical universities and hospitals in the world for 'live' video-conferencing, case studies and knowledge sharing.

 

The new universal Olympus Endoscopic Ultrasound Center EU-ME1 is remarkable for numerous reasons. It combines cutting-edge technologies and is a tailor-made, universal system, which meets the real-world needs of today's endosonographer. Another of the EU-ME1's great strengths – and this was a key achievement – is that Olympus R&D made every effort to make sure that all recent technologies were taken into account when designing this "all-in-one" solution for EUS.

 

Furthermore, the EU-ME1 has been equipped to handle 'any and all' future developments of Echoendoscopes. The final touch is that the new system is so compact that it can be mounted onto any endoscopy trolley in a cinch – a big advantage when space plays an important role within the examination room.

 

The spacious state-of-the-art facility is located on the 2nd Floor, Lion Tarachand Bapa Hospital & Research Centre (LTBHRC). With the launch of Endoscopy Asia, LTBHRC will be able to offer the specialized endoscopy services to their deserving patients at highly subsidised cost. Lion Tarachand Bapa Hospital is situated, Next to Sion Hospital, Jain Society, Sion (W), Mumbai 400022.
