Endoscopy is a procedure to examine the inside of the body using a thin, flexible tube that has a light source and camera on the end (an endoscope).  Instruments can also be attached to the endoscope in order to carry out some treatment procedures.  A number of endoscopic techniques are used at King Edward VII's Hospital Sister Agnes to examine the gastrointestinal tract (all with the exception of ERCP are normally carried out as an outpatient procedure):


An endoscope is swallowed and guided down to examine the oesophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine.  Gastroscopy is used to check for coeliac disease, stomach ulcers, diseases of the oesophagus and early signs of cancer.


The whole of the large bowel (colon and rectum) can be examined with an endoscope to assess and remove polyps, and diagnose bowel cancer and inflammatory conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's Disease.

Flexible sigmoidoscopy

This form of endoscopy is used to examine the rectum and lower part of the large bowel.  Biopsies can be taken for examination and intestinal polyps removed.  Flexible sigmoidoscopy is a very effective method for detecting early bowel cancer.


ERCP is a technique that uses an endoscope and X-rays to examine the bile and pancreatic ducts.  It is used to investigate jaundice and diagnose bile duct and pancreatic cancer and gallstones.  ERCP can be used therapeutically to treat chronic pancreatitis and other conditions where the bile duct has been damaged.
