Dedicated purpose-built endoscopy suite

Endoscopy

One Ashford Hospital has a dedicated purpose built Endoscopy suite, housing the latest endoscopy equipment. This enables us to offer a wide range of procedures in an environment which prioritises patient privacy and confidentiality.

Our service is led and delivered by experienced Consultants in the fields of Gasteroenterology and Gasterointestinal Surgery.

  • A gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy investigation uses a long, flexible tube with a very small camera and light on the end to look inside the gastrointestinal tract.
  • An upper GI endoscopy (OGD, or gastroscopy) is used to look into the oesophagus (gullet), stomach and small bowel
  • A lower GI endoscopy, called a colonoscopy, examines the large bowel.

These investigations are very effective at finding out if you have a problem in your GI tract such as inflammation, polyps or cancer, and enable the Consultant to take biopsies (small samples of bowel lining) for investigation under the microscope.
