Endoscopy at Intus
The endoscopy suite at Intus provides an extensive range of services including diagnostic examination procedures, treatments and outpatient clinics.
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. Polyps can be removed during the procedure therefore reducing the risks of developing bowel cancer.
