What is Endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a procedure used to examine any part of the interior of the body through a long, thin, flexible tube, about the thickness of your index finger (colonoscopy) or your little finger (gastroscopy), with a bright light and camera at its tip. The endoscope is inserted through a natural opening, such as the mouth or anus to explore parts of the digestive system including the colon and stomach. The London endoscopy specialist gets a clear view and can check whether any disease is present.

During the procedure patients may require a small amount of sedation and painkillers, the options available will be clearly explained by the consultant and nursing staff and tailored to ensure individualised patient care.

At King Edward VII’s Hospital, all endoscopies are performed by specially trained physicians or surgeons. Our specialist surgeons offer a number of forms of endoscopic investigation, including:

Upper GI endoscopy (gastroscopy), Colonoscopy, Flexible sigmoidoscopy

• Anaemia • Coeliac disease • Crohn’s disease • Gallstones • Irritable Bowel Syndrome • Removal of growths (polyps) • Ulcerative colitis • Ulcers • Barrett’s Oesophagus • Stomach cancer – early and advanced • Oesophageal cancer • Gastro-intestinal stroma tumours of the upper intestinal tract • Gasto-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) • Hiatus hernias • Achalasia • Gastroparesis • Colon cancer
