Dr Jason Huang specializes in procedural gastroenterology. He is experienced in the full spectrum of procedural gastroenterology spanning from standard procedures such as endoscopy and colonoscopy, to more difficult procedures such as resection of lesions or growths in the digestive tract or treatment of recurrent iron deficiency anaemia to high end complex procedures such as Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, endoscopic revision post bypass, bariatric endoscopy, bile duct stone removal, stent insertion and radiofrequency ablation. His addition experience in California enabled him to perform procedural with the latest cutting edge techniques whether it is a standard or complex procedure.
Jason covers a complete range of services including :
Full high definition (1080p) fiber optic scope is used to examine the upper digestive tract including the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum (first part of small bowel). Usually coeliac disease, sugar intolerances, stomach infections and signs of acid reflux is detected this way. This procedure is also useful to remove lesions and therefore prevent cancer.
High Quality Colonoscopy and Large Polyp Resection
Full high definition (1080p) fiber optic scope is used to examine the large bowel as well as to take biopsies and remove polyps in the colon to prevent bowel cancer or look for cause of diarrhea, constipation or bleeding. This procedure usually takes 15-30 minutes to complete. Bowel preparation is needed prior to the procedure to maximize safety and accuracy of this test.
The aim of this procedure is to help patients who have tried losing weight by conventional means and have been unsuccessful. Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a very safe procedure which is aimed to shrink your stomach to help you feel full more quickly and maintain that fullness for longer.
Patients who have undergone prior weight loss surgery (either the sleeve or bypass) and have unfortunately put weight back on, can have this procedure to help lose a further 10-20kg.
Further discussions need to take place prior to any planned bariatric intervention therefore it would be important to make an appointment to see Dr Jason Huang to discuss in detail.
Standard endoscopy is typically performed to study the anatomy prior to any definitive intervention.
The ordinary endoscope and colonoscope only reaches so far into the intestine. It does not traverse the entire digestive tract. With the balloon enteroscope, I can get between 1 to 3 meters further into the small intestine. Typical indication for balloon enteroscopy would be to follow a capsule endoscopy or to treat recurrent iron deficiency anaemia when an endoscopy and colonoscopy failed to identify a cause of bleeding or anaemia
Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
A side view endoscope is used to perform this procedure. This procedure is highly specialized and is used to treat bile duct gall stones, cancer palliation and certain pancreas problems.
Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
A endoscopic ultrasound probe is used to perform this procedure. This procedure is highly specialized and is used to diagnose stone disease or growths which otherwise may not be seen on scans, to perform biopsy for definitive diagnosis and drainage of collections around the stomach.
