Eugene Gorodetsky D.V.M. - Mobile Endoscopy Services
Dr. Gorodetsky provides on-call endoscopy services for our emergency patients. A typical case would be a dog who has swallowed a foreign object such as a toy. The patient is spared a major operation by having the object retrieved using a flexible endoscope.
Examples of procedures which can be done with an endoscope are:
- upper gastro-intestina study (examination of the oesophagus, stomach, and part of the small intestine)
- colonoscopy (examination of the colon and rectum)
- rhinoscopy (looking up the nasal cavity)
- bronchoscopy (examining the airways).
Endoscopy often includes collecting samples such as biopsies; these samples are sent to a pathology laboratory for further evaluation.
