We have vast experience in the field of gastroenterology and for many years the Rogaška Medical Centre has been among the most esteemed centres in Slovenia.

Specialists in internal medicine – gastroenterology perform specialist examinations and consultations, and preventive examinations. They are known for the holistic treatment of patients, which is successfully carried out in cooperation with other departments.

Leading fields of work include diagnostic tests and therapeutic procedures:

  • endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract – gastroscopy is used to detect and treat severe changes in the stomach, oesophagus and duodenum;
  • endoscopy of the lower gastrointestinal system or colonoscopy with ileoscopy is an examination of the entire colon and last part of the small intestine. In this way, experienced professionals can carefully monitor the mucosa with state-of-the-art equipment and take samples for further investigation. If any polyps in the colon are detected, which can represent precancerous changes, they can be immediately removed without pain;
  • endoscopic ultrasound is an examination for a more detailed analysis of the changes in the wall of the digestive tract and in its surroundings, and for a detailed examination of the pancreas and bile duct.

Additional information

The planned endoscopic examination in our centre can now (from 9 June 2016) also be performed in SEDATION. You can choose between two different options. 

  • Examination in analgosedation means that you will be given medication before the procedure, which will calm you down, reduce any pain, and make the examination easier for you. 
  • For those who would like to “sleep through” the process, endoscopy in deep sedation with propofol is possible (from 21 June 2016). This involves an extra doctor, a specialist anesthetist. 
Both services are self-paid.  If you are interested in these options, write to us or call us. We will send you a detailed description of the process and a questionnaire about your previous illnesses, medication, allergies and operations.
