The Endoscopy Centre aspires to be the centre of excellence in endoscopy services. The centre is dedicated to provide safe, efficient and finest diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy services.

The Centre provides outpatient and inpatient services for elective and non-elective (emergency) treatment for gastrointestinal and respiratory conditions.

Endoscopic procedures may be performed for diagnostic or therapeutic as listed below:

  • Diagnostic Endoscopy Procedures:
    • Gastroscopy (OGDS)
      This is a procedure that examines the upper part of the digestive system. A long flexible tube is inserted through your mouth to view the inner lining of your oesophagus, stomach and part of your small intestine. The entire procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. You may be sedated during the procedure.
    • Colonoscopy
      A flexible tube is inserted through the rectum to examine the inside of the large intestines and it may involve removal of certain lesions such as polyps. The examination usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. You may be sedated during the procedure.
    • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
      This procedure is used to diagnose and or treat problems of the gallbladder, biliary system, pancreas and liver by passing a flexible tube through your mouth into your stomach and first part of your small intestine. This procedure uses fluoroscopy to provide real-time x-ray imaging of the structure. You will be sedated during the procedure.
    • Bronchoscopy
      This procedure is performed to examine your lung airways by passing a thin flexible tube through your nose or mouth into the back of your throat to reach the lung airways. Lavage maybe performed or a sample of lung mucus or tissue may be taken for further laboratory investigations. You may be sedated during the procedure.
    • Capsule Endoscopy
      This involves swallowing a small pill like capsule that contains a camera to record images of the small intestine inner lining as it passes through and transmitting the images to a data recorder.
