Endoscopy

An endoscopy is a procedure to examine the inside of your body. It uses an endoscope – a long, thin, flexible tube which has a light and camera at one end.

The images are shown on a monitor, so your consultant can clearly see the inside of your body.

An endoscopy is required to investigate a number of conditions including abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing, persistent diarrhoea and blood in stools.
