On your daily commute, in your routines and in your everyday life, it is very likely that you will come across a Joaquim Chaves Saúde clinic. What you may not know, yet, is that you can easily and conveniently book medical appointments and exams in various specialities, including gastroenterology.

Joaquim Chaves Saúde is committed to a strategy of proximity to its customers, both in terms of clinical analysis collection points and medical clinics. The Gastroenterology speciality is present in all of the Group's clinics and is staffed by specialist doctors with extensive experience in the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system and in endoscopic examinations.

Currently, due to the high number of cases of tumours of the digestive tract, these examinations are of great importance, namely in the screening of colorectal cancer, considered one of the most frequent tumours in Portugal. It is widely considered that the best way to prevent the onset of colorectal cancer is to  regularly screen for it through endoscopic examinations. The Portuguese Society of Gastroenterology recommends that, for the general population, regular colon and rectal cancer screening should start at the age of 50. 

Other diseases that fall within the scope of this speciality include Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, as well as anal pathologies (haemorrhoids, fissures), which fall within the scope of Proctology. Liver diseases (hepatitis, cirrhosis) fall under the subspeciality of Hepatology, which you will also find in our units.
