In November 2018 and again in June, 2019, Dr. Soeren Gatz and Mrs. Ottilie Ecke visited us in Ndanda in order to establich video-endoscopy in our hospital.
Intensive teaching sessions were conducted for our doctors and nurses, as well as for doctors from surrounding hospitals.
Meanwhile, video-gastroscopy, colonoscopy and bronchoscopy are performed with modern equipment and high quality.
Apart from diagnostic investigations we are now also able to perform interventional endoscopy with procedures like clipping, injection of adrenalin and ligature of oesophageal varices.
The number of patients has increased from about 12/month towards about 50 patients/month.
The price for the investigation is still very cheap (30.000 TSh).
