A patient focused service

Gastroscopy

Following your consultation you may have been informed that you require a procedure called a gastroscopy .

This is when a thin flexible tube called an endoscope is used to view the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. Details of any preparation required will be given to you prior your examination. The procedure is minimally invasive, relatively painless and at worst only mildly uncomfortable.

The gastroscopy will be performed in purpose built theatres using technically advanced, state of the art equipment. Your consultant views images produced via video linked screens allowing excellent vision of each area facilitating early, accurate diagnosis of each symptom. You many require sedation.

Following your gastroscopy, you will be taken to recovery to be expertly looked after until you are fully recovered. You will be offered light refreshments prior to going safely home.
