Endoscopy

Endoscopy_1Endoscopy allows a visual examination of the gastrointestinal tract and upper respiratory tract without invasive exploratory surgery.

The technique allows for visualisation of the lining of the digestive system and for taking biopsies (samples) of the lining.  Many foreign bodies in the oesophagus and stomach may be removed via endoscopy.

We have both large and small diameter endoscopes, as small as 2mm in diameter.  The tiny 2mm flexible endoscope can be used to evaluate the tiny, fine complex structures of the nasal cavity and even up into the bladder to look for polyps, masses or other abnormalities.
