Experienced specialists and staff
Our endoscopy specialists are skilled in the latest endoscopic techniques. Each brings a particular expertise within the speciality, and all focus on the needs of each individual – giving the patient a clear understanding of possible implications associated with the condition, discussing the right form of treatment for that person, and working to achieve the best possible outcome.
Our endoscopy team includes gastro-enterologists as well as surgeons. The endoscopy services provided by our team include several procedures: gastroscopy, colonoscopy, and with associated diagnostic testing and therapeutic treatments.
If necessary, they carry out biopsies, and remove polyps during procedures; these tissue samples are then sent for testing.
Focusing on the needs of our patients
Above all, the focus at our endoscopy unit is on our patients. Highly experienced registered nurses provide courteous care, with regular communication and attention, to keep their patients comfortable. We explain all procedures to our patients at every stage, and they are encouraged to ask us questions if there is anything they are unsure about. The nominated contact person is also included in discussions regarding the patient’s care during and after the procedure.
Providing expert medical care, in a supportive, empathetic setting, we also strive to alleviate any stress and anxiety our patients and their families may feel. Our clear communication, friendly courtesy and excellent facilities are rated highly by our patients and their families.
