Specialist Gastroenterology and Endoscopy

Endoscopy allows a doctor to view the inside of the body without performing major surgery, using a tube-like endoscope that has a lens at one end, and a video camera at the other. This non-invasive procedure allows us to examine your oesophagus, stomach and bowel. 

At City East Specialist Day Hospital, we have a dedicated Endoscopy Theatre for our consultant Gastroenterologists. This unit is equipped with a state of the art Olympus High Definition Endoscopy System, and a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can be carried out here.

Our highly skilled Gastroenterologists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders such as coeliac disease, Chrohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and bowel or colon cancer.

We operate within the GENCA Guidelines for Infection Control in Endoscopy and endoscopes are reprocessed through an Automated Endoscope Reprocessor (AER).

What should I expect after endoscopy?

Unlike a full surgical procedure, an endoscopy is generally painless and there will be no scar or stitches. In most cases you’ll be able to resume normal duties after just 24 hours.

Are there any complications?

This depends on the type of endoscopy and treatment you undergo, so it is best to ask your specialist for advice. If you experience severe abdominal pain, vomiting or pass blood, please contact your doctor immediatel
