General Surgery


Endoscopy is a procedure that allows your surgeon to examine the inside lining of the oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine and large intestine.


While under sedation, a telescopic camera is passed through the mouth to visualize the upper GI tract. This allows your surgeon to diagnose various problems including:

  • Heartburn / reflux
  • Bleeding
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Duodenal ulcers
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Painful swallowing
  • Tumours

The procedure is done as a day case and usually takes between 5 to 15 minutes.
