Endoscopy at Intus
The endoscopy suite at Intus provides diagnostic procedures to investigate any part of the digestive tract.
What is endoscopy?
Endoscopy is an internal examination using a flexible tube with a tiny video camera on the end.
Endoscopy is a relatively simple, non invasive way to look inside the body to gather valuable diagnostic information. Through endoscopy, tissue samples (biopsies) may be obtained, areas of blockage opened, and any active bleeding stopped. Pre-cancerous polyps can be removed during the procedure to reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer.
