Gastroscopy & Colonoscopy

Gastroscopy

A gastroscopy is a medical procedure where a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope is used to look inside the stomach.

The procedure is also sometimes referred to as an upper endoscopy.

An endoscope has a light and a camera at one end. The camera sends images of the inside of your body to a television monitor.

A gastroscopy can also be used to treat various gut-related problems. Tiny tools can be passed down the endoscope to:

  • Repair bleeding ulcers and veins.
  • Widen a blocked oesophagus (the tube through which food passes to the stomach).
  • Provide nutrition if you're unable to eat food in the normal way.
  • Remove non-cancerous growths (polyps) or early-stage cancerous tumours.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine camera.(rectum and colon).A colonoscopy helps find:
  • Ulcers.
  • Colon polyps.
  • Tumors.
  • Areas of inflammation or bleeding.
A small video camera is attached to the colonoscope so that your doctor can take pictures or video of the large intestine (colon). The colonoscope can be used to look at the whole colon and the lower part of the small intestine.
