Endoscopy procedures are key investigations for the diagnosis and treatment of disorders in gastroenterology and hepatology. Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine for the study of the digestive system (stomach and bowel) and its disorders. Hepatology includes the study of the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree and pancreas as well as management of their disorders.
Gastroenterologists provide a range of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy procedures to investigate presenting symptoms such as abdominal pain and a change in bowel pattern. Once a diagnosis is made, or any serious GI condition is excluded, we advise on the management of the symptoms and GI diagnosis. We offer gastrointestinal endoscopy as a treatment modality that complements surgery and interventional radiology e.g. the management of GI tract polyps and bile duct gallstones. Gastroenterologists also support the emergency endoscopy service for GI bleed, and screening or surveillance endoscopy programme to enable early detection of GI problems e.g. varices, polyps and cancer.
