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.
