An Insightful Procedure

A gastroscopy, also known as an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, is an endoscopic procedure. An umbrella term for using a long, thin tube with a camera to look inside your body.

In this case, the approach is used to look at the inside of your throat, oesophagus, stomach, or duodenum (upper small intestine).

You could be having problems swallowing, unexplained nausea, ongoing indigestion, heartburn or stomach pain. A gastroscopy can help your consultant to identify underlying causes.

Gastroscopy is the best route to see cysts, ulcers, or stomach, or throat cancers. Bringing rapid treatment for conditions which are unpleasant, perhaps life threatening.

Apart from providing insight, the procedure can be used to take biopsies, or for treatment. An intrinsic part of caring for areas we can’t see, yet matter so much.

A gastroscopy can be a hugely helpful diagnostic procedure, but it can also feel a little daunting. Our team will be with you every step of the way so that you feel calm and confident and know exactly what to expect.
