What is Endoscopy 

An Endoscopy is the term used to describe the procedure where the inside of your gastrointestinal tract is examined using a flexible narrow, lighted instrument called an endoscope.

  • A gastroscopy is the procedure where the oesophagus (gullet), stomach and first part of the duodenum (small bowel) is examined.
  • A colonoscopy is the procedure where the colon (large bowel) is examined.
  • A flexible sigmoidoscopy is the procedure where the left side of the colon (sigmoidoscopy) is examined.
