A colonoscopy is a procedure that allows an endoscopist to see the inside lining of the rectum and colon and remove polyps and/ or tissue samples for cancer prevention and diagnosis of other GI disorders.
Otherwise known as a partial colonoscopy, this procedure still utilizes a colonoscope to visualize the lining of your rectum but does not continue to the rest of your colon. Your specialist may request this procedure depending on your age and symptoms.
A gastroscopy is a procedure where the upper digestive tract – the esophagus, the stomach and the first part of the small intestine can be examined using a long thin flexible tube with a tiny video camera at the tip.
Your safety as a patient is our top-priority. Therefore we require all patients to a virtual anesthetic assessment by an internal medicine specialist before undergoing your procedure.
