Expert Sigmoidoscopy Procedure

Expert Sigmoidoscopy Procedure

Dr. Ali recognized as one of the best gastroenterologists in Karachi, offers sigmoidoscopy procedures for patients with digestive disorders, providing a minimally invasive approach to diagnosis and treatment.

What is Sigmoidoscopy?

Sigmoidoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the lower part of the colon (sigmoid colon). Using a flexible tube with a camera, Dr. Ali can view the inside of the colon to diagnose issues like polyps, cancer, and more.

Pre-Procedure Consultation

Each patient receives a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Ali, where the procedure, its purpose, and potential outcomes are thoroughly explained. This is to ensure that patients are well-informed and comfortable proceeding.

Preparation for the Procedure

Patients are given clear instructions on how to prepare for a sigmoidoscopy, usually involving dietary adjustments and possibly laxatives to clear the colon.

The Procedure Day

On the day of the sigmoidoscopy, Dr. Ali and his team ensure a comforting environment. The procedure involves the gentle insertion of the sigmoidoscope, with minimal discomfort.

During the Procedure

Throughout the procedure, Dr. Ali carefully examines the sigmoid colon. If necessary, tissue samples can be taken for further analysis, and minor issues can be addressed immediately.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, patients are given detailed care instructions and can usually resume their regular activities quickly. Dr. Ali provides a comprehensive explanation of the findings and any next steps.


A follow-up appointment is scheduled to discuss the results in detail and address any remaining concerns, ensuring ongoing support and care.
