Hello dear

Welcome to
I have gone through your concern in depth .

* Capsule endoscopy is for the diagnosis of the intestinal tract only , taking
photographs of all the angles of the intestine.

* It is not meant for the cure of ulcer problems .

* Cost in a good center in Ahmedabad would be around 20 - 25 thousand
rupees .

Hope this will help you .
Regards dear .
