Our Services Endoscopic Diagnosis and Treatment Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy is an investigatory procedure which allows the doctor to look at the inner lining of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum by using a long flexible tube (the size of your little finger) with a tiny video camera and light source at the end that is placed through your mouth. It allows the doctor to detect ulcers, tumours and inflammations in your upper digestive tract and is useful for the diagnosis of bleeding, swallowing problems or abdominal pain.

Endoscopy Centre
The Centre is managed by a team of dedicated and experienced endoscopists. It is equipped with state-of-the-art endoscopic imaging systems and the aim is to provide high quality services in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, biliary and pancreatic system as well as the respiratory system. If necessary, during the procedure, the patient can be sedated with the help of our experienced anaesthesiologists to minimize any discomfort he/she might encounter during the procedure.

Patients who choose to undergo the consultation and gastroscopy procedure on the same day should fast (do not eat or drink) for 6 to 8 hours before they come to the Centre. Our specialists will tell you right after the procedure what is seen in your upper digestive tract. If biopsies are taken, it will take 2 to 3 working days to complete the report. Your specialist or attending doctor will contact you for subsequent follow-up and treatment.
