The Endoscopy unit with the latest equipment available in the world is ready to provide high-quality services to outpatients and inpatients in a large and quiet environment. Physicians in this unit who are mostly gastroenterologists and pulmonologists, along with anesthesiologists, experienced nurses, and technicians conduct the most challenging (non-surgical) procedures.

This center with 3 operating rooms and 15 recovery beds equipped with cardiopulmonary monitoring as well as several beds for preoperative procedures has made it possible to admit a significant number of patients daily. The endoscopy unit admission is available for both outpatients and inpatients, in this regard, outpatients will be admitted directly through the appointments and the patients who are admitted on an outpatient basis will be discharged after the surgery with the recommendation of the treating physician.

The center offers services from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m to all types of patients including emergency and non-emergency patients, in other times, the personnel and on-call physicians in this unit are also available to provide emergency care services to patients.
