Endoscopy Unit

The Endoscopy Unit at KHCC is a predominantly interventional unit specialized in gastrointestinal, pulmonary and urology endoscopic procedures. Interventional endoscopies are minimally invasive procedures that provide patients with safe and effective alternatives to more invasive procedures such as surgery.
Physicians in the Endoscopy Unit use state-of-the-art endoscopic procedures to diagnose and stage cancer and benign lesions as well as perform many other highly specialized procedures for both inpatients and outpatients.
The Endoscopy Unit at KHCC consists of two procedural rooms, a three-bed recovery area and an automatic disinfection room.
