Dr Nitish Jhawar introduces State-of-the-art manometry machine at a hospital in Vashi Navi Mumbai

Bringing in a higher level of quality in medical care, Dr Nitish Jhawar who is the Head of Colorectal department at the Fortis Hiranandani hospital located in Vashi Navi Mumbai has introduced a manometry machine to his department.

This will be the first manometry machine available in the whole of Navi Mumbai region.

Manometry tests are key physiological tests that enable doctors to study the Colorectal and Esophageal region. Physiological tests are important because they allow doctors to directly examine how the interior muscles and reflexes are working.

Using Colonic manometry and anorectal manometry doctors are able to understand the pressure and motor activity including sensations and reflexes inside the colon and the anus /rectal region, as well as the strength of the muscles there.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Jhawar said,” I am happy to announce that our department will now be able to provide the best in medical investigation for colorectal conditions. The manometry machine plays a vital role in providing information to doctors to diagnose accurately and quickly enabling patients to benefit from the right therapy.”

The test is an important step while evaluating a patient in cases of constipation, stool leakage, or severe abdominal pain which are not responding to other medical therapy and it also helps in deciding whether patient is a candidate for STARR surgery for constipation . Manometry tests often are able to spot issues which are missed by other diagnostic tests like radiology and endoscopy.

The Manometry test is an outpatient procedure, taking only around 30-90 minutes but can be higher in rare cases. Under the procedure a thin flexible tube is inserted into the rectum and the machine then measures the muscle contractions, movement and pressure occurring internally. Patients might need to carry out certain actions so that the machine can record the responses to these manoeuvres.

Completely safe and painless, the test delivers critical inputs to doctors. The results, which are seen in form of graphs, enable medical practitioners to understand the efficacy of motor functions of the affected muscles helping them identify the cause accurately, guiding the doctor in choosing and administering in the correct treatment therapy.

What patient says about Dr. Nitish Jhawar

    I was diagnosed with gall stones a year ago in Delhi, I showed it to a doctor at M.... hospital, he .... asked me to get a surgery done and get my gall removed on any date of my choice, I was sacred and too young to get it done I got a vibe from doctor that for him it’s just a small things, however according to for a patient it’s important first be convinced on the urgency to get it done and feel safe . A year later I shifted to Mumbai and started having a frequent pain in shoulder blades and gall area. It went sharp this time. We went to Dr Nitish , as oppose to Delhi doc, Dr Nitish was very polite, first asked us to get the scan done and understand the current scenario, the scan showed one big 17 mm stone which was earlier also there but this time also there were multiple various sized stones as well along with the big one. Dr Nitish examined the scan, explained me and my husband about the condition and need of surgery or else the stone Would have slipped in the panacea or bile calling for a bigger operation. He explained diagramatically . He was patient in explaining, gave us time to think and be convinced. We were ready and then he performed it . It was flawless, quick and went well. He is a very experienced and fine surgeon , he is caring and doesn’t create panic at all rather he takes it slowly and makes patient comfortable. It was lapro, it’s been 2 months I m writing this . I faced no issues till now. Fortis staff was also very caring and good. I would mention fortis Vashi in specific. Good follow up diet makes it normal. I would strongly recommend Dr Nitish. He knows his job perfectly. He is not money minded at all. He would recommend surgery only if it’s required.
