Or you had features related to upper GI problems such as Anemia, Weight Loss, etc

You may require a gastroscopy as recommended by your GP or another doctor.

A gastroscopy is where a fine flexible camera telescope is used to examine the oesophagus (gullet), stomach and duodenum.

It is used to diagnosis a number problems including but not limited to reflux oesophagitis, hiatus hernia, stomach inflammation, stomach ulcers, duodenum inflammation, duodenal ulcers, polyps, tumours (benign or cancerous) etc.

A gastroscopy can be performed with

Throat spray local anaesthetic (numbing of the throat)

You will get full information for you to be able to know more about the procedure, complications, process, etc during the process of consultation to enable you to provide a formal proper informed consent for the procedure.

Colonoscopy

If you have problems that point to large bowel/colon issues such as

Change in the pattern of your bowel opening

Diarhea

Constipation

Bleeding from the back passage

Mucus from the back passage

Or if you had problems that are thought to be related to large bowel/colon such as anemia, weight loss, etc

You may require a colonoscopy as recommended by your GP or another doctor.

A colonoscopy is a fine flexible camera telescope examination up the back passage to examine your rectum and your entire large bowel.

A colonoscopy is used to diagnose a number of problems including but not limited to polyps, tumours (benign and cancerous), Crohns, Ulcerative colitis, Diverticulosis etc. In the case of benign polyps it may also be possible to treat some polyps by removing the polyps within the same examination session.

A colonoscopy is normally performed with

Sedation (using a combination of pain killers and sedation)

Or

Entonox (Nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas)

A colonoscopy needs preparation of the large bowel in advance by means of specialised medication to clean the bowel.

We go to great lengths to ensure that you have the best experience before, during and after the procedure.

A colonoscopy takes some time to perform and is generally thought to be a safe procedure.

You will get full information for you to be able to know more about the procedure, complications, process, etc during the process of consultation to enable you to provide a formal proper informed consent for the procedure.

FLEXIBLE SIGMOIDOSCOPY

A flexible sigmoidoscopy is a procedure used to examine your rectum and the distal one third of your large bowel (colon).

It is used for more or less the same indications and to diagnose similar problems as a colonoscopy but when your doctor makes a judgement that the examination can be limited to the last third of the colon.

A Flexible Sigmoidoscopy is commonly performed with no medication (you can discuss other options with your doctor/endoscopist if needed). A flexible sigmoidoscopy is thought to be a quick and safe procedure.

You will get full information for you to be able to know more about the procedure, complications, process, etc during the process of consultation to enable you to provide a formal proper informed consent for the procedure.
