About us

Until 1988, flexible endoscopy was a completely unknown subfield in surgical departments and endoscopy of the digestive tract was performed exclusively by internists - gastroenterologists throughout Czechoslovakia.

At that time, examination devices with the complete technology of that time were purchased for our hospital according to the model of developed countries and the doctors were trained both in Germany in Hamburg (Eppendorf Klinik - prof. Nib Soehendra) and in Brno at the Military Hospital (trainer MUDr. Ivan Hošek). We presented our results at the Czechoslovak Conference of Regional Surgeons in Brno in the spring of 1989 as the first ever surgical unit dealing with flexible endoscopy. The event had a great positive response, many surgical departments quickly began to equip themselves with this technique and to train doctors. We trained and certified many of them at our facility. We have received a total of 4 IGA grants on this topic and have published a number of papers abroad.

On 1 January 2015, we obtained the status of a screening centre in the colorectal cancer screening programme.

Since June 2018, we have been working in newly renovated premises:

Information for physicians referring patients to the Institute of Medicine

We ask doctors who send patients to us for examinations to specify the requested examination and to let the patient know which examination is ordered:

1) gastroscopy - endoscopic examination of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum

2) colonoscopy - examination of the colon ev. with the terminal part of the small intestine

3) ERCP - endoscopic examination of the biliary tract or pancreas using X-ray (always during hospitalization)

4) gastroenterology outpatient clinic - is open 4 days a week and is intended only for patients with more serious gastroenterological diseases, whose complex monitoring requires repeated endoscopic examinations or endoscopic interventions (biopsies, dilatations, etc.). In particular, it is intended for those conditions that require hospitalisation, surgical or post-operative follow-up in the ICU.

Patients are booked by phone or in person for outpatient examinations or procedures. The ordering physician of the UH (endoscopy centre or surgical outpatient clinic) decides whether to perform the examination or procedure during hospitalisation or under general anaesthesia (anaesthesia in the presence of an anaesthesiologist always during hospitalisation).
