Functional and organic illnesses of the digestive system have become more significant throughout the years, both in number and kind. For example celiac disease, considered absolutely rare in the past and almost only of paediatric concern, has today become prominent and widespread even in adults.

Digestive endoscopy has contributed to the advancement of gastroenterology: at first used as a diagnostic technique, it subsequently has been developed as part of the therapy. On this subject, we emphasize the importance of preventative diagnosis for polyposis of the large intestine, where it is now possible to perform an endoscopic polypectomy, allowing proper prophylaxis of colon neoplasms.

Within our Centre we have, in this field, highly experienced and competent professionals aided by state of the art technical equipment.
