Investigations on Gastroenterology

 

To understand the nature of your problems and to give appropriate treatment, you may well need to undergo further internal examinations using a technique called endoscopy. We use thin flexible instruments, which can look into the upper or lower intestine. These instruments also give the opportunity to take specimens and to apply treatments.
