In early 2008, the Gastroenterology Institute entered its new home in the building of the Dyna and Fala Weinstock Pediatric Emergency Center. The clinic includes: two advanced examination rooms, outfitted with the best modern equipment; a large recovery room; treatment rooms; sterilization rooms for medical equipment; and physicians’ rooms.

The clinic provides treatment and consultations for hospitalized as well as ambulatory patients. In the last year, eight hundred tests per month were performed, and this number is constantly growing. The major tests performed at the clinic are:

  • Gastroscopy—endoscopic examination of the upper digestive tract
  • Colonoscopy—endoscopic examination of the lower digestive tract
  • ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography)—examination of ducts of gall bladder and pancreas


The clinic also performs PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy), insertion of a tube into the stomach through the abdominal wall.
