Department of Endoscopy
Department of Endoscopy was established in 1986, as an earlier independent Department of Endoscopy across the whole province, its diagnosis and therapy level of digestive endoscopy is very high, therefore, it was named as "Jilin Province Digestive Endoscopy Medical Center" by Health Department of Jilin Province. As the continuous development of the hospital and its departments, Department of Endoscopy has been growing all the time, with more and more employees, its diagnosis and treatment technologies have also been developed and enhanced continuously with the improvement of the nationwide digestive endoscopy related environment and the hardware facilities. Especially during the past ten years, with young workers' participation and efforts, the digestive endoscopy diagnosis related technologies of Department of Endoscopy have been developed rapidly and reached the advanced level across the whole province.
At present, Department of Endoscopy has 23 professional medical care personnel, 9 doctors, including 1 professor and 1 chief physician, 5 physicians-in-charge, 2 physicians; 1 M.D., 6 staffs with Master's Degree, 2 staffs with Bachelor's Degree, an academic echelon with high quality and reasonable union of old doctors, middle-aged doctors and young doctors has been built. Chief Doctor Liu Baichun has started work in Department of Endoscopy since 1989, he is proficient in diagnosis and interventional therapy of diseases by gastroscope and colonoscopy, and has rich experience in digestive endoscopy diagnosis and therapy and high technologies in this field, at the same time, he is serving as a Member of Standing Committee of Endoscopy Branch of Jilin Province Medical Association.
In order to provide better services for patients, according to the development status and characteristic of diagnosis and treatment of digestive endoscopy field in China, our Department set up three professional Interventional Therapy Teams, with our six years of efforts, we have trained lots of high-level technical talents including Wei Lijuan, Li Jun'an, Song Ying, etc., they have become leaders in EMR, ESD, ERCP and related diagnosis technologies, digestive tract malignant or benign stricture and its expansion, stenting, etc., our Department has successfully completed more than 5000 cases with the above high-level diagnosis and therapy technologies, and relieved pains for our patients through minimally invasive surgery.
Department of Endoscopy has six specialized diagnosis and treatment rooms and 9 sets of gastrointestinal electronic endoscope host machines belonged to Olympus260sc series. It has been equipped with high-definition electronic gastroscope, electronic colonoscopy, nasal electronic gastroscope, electronic magnifying endoscopy, electronic duodenoscopy and duodenum double-balloon enteroscopy (totally more than 70 pieces). It also owns one whole digestive tract endoscopic ultrasonography diagnosis equipment and one treatment equipment for that, and is equipped with 6 electric coagulation and resection equipments, 6 argon plasma coagulation electric resection equipments (argon knife) as well as one capsule endoscopy. Department of Endoscopy is equipped with a professional cleaning and disinfection room that can clean and disinfect the digestive endoscopies quickly and with standard, which effectively eliminates cross-infection during the process of digestive endoscopy treatment and ensures medical safety.
Department of Endoscopy has been carrying out analgesia endoscopic diagnosis and treatment for nearly a decade, and has gradually formed its own key technologies. It firstly proposed the Crank Theory and Catheter Oxygen Theory in China, which makes our department’s analgesia endoscopic diagnosis and treatment ahead of the national level. Analgesia endoscopic diagnosis and treatment enable patients to get gastro-endoscope diagnosis and the intervetional therapy in a safe, comfortable and stable situation, so that to enhance endoscope disease detection rate, reduce the risk of endoscopic therapy, which win the recognition and praise of most patients. Currently, more than 80% of patients in our department select analgesia endoscopic diagnosis and treatment, which stays in the province’s leading level. To maximize extent, the anesthesia resuscitation monitoring system ensures the resuscitation safety during and after operation.
Department of Endoscopy carries out lots of sophisticated endoscopic therapy techniques: (1) gastrointestinal polyps resection; (2) endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR); (3) endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD); (4) endoscopic submucosal tumor resection; (5) endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and choledocholithiasis stone removal surgery; (6) biliary stricture dilatation and pancreatic & biliary duct benign or malignant obstruction inside (outside) drainage; (7) therapy for gastrointestinal bleeding; (8) endoscopic variceal ligation, endoscopic injection sclerotherapy and gastric varices embolization; (9) digestive tract benign or malignant stricture dilation and cardia achalasia balloon dilatation therapy; (10) digestive track foreign body removal surgery; (11) digestive tract benign or malignant stenting; (12) early gastrointestinal cancer resection; (13) stomach lithotripsy; (14) therapies related to endoscopic ultrasonography, etc.
Department of Endoscopy is also responsible for the teaching of Edoscope Science for undergraduates, postgraduate students (seven-year schooling) and eight-year schooling students and the compiling of the Jilin University Twelfth Five-year Plan teaching materials Digestive Endoscope Diagnostics, which solves the problem of having no teaching materials for students and gets high praise from both leaders and students.
Gastrointestinal disease is a common and frequently-occurring disease among people. With the development of modern medicine, digestive endoscopy is quite accurate and reliable, to which other diagnosis methods can hardly comparable. It can enhance early cancer detection rate, and patients can get treated under the endoscopy. For some patients whose hepatic duct, bile duct, or pancreatic duct gets stones or to be stenosis, it can help them from suffering the pain from laparotomy. The minimally invasive therapy can not only achieve faster recovery, but also less trauma, which has already become the preferred therapy for many diseases.
All of us working in Department of Endoscopy will bring health to our patients with our high-quality services and skilled technologies.
