Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a procedure in which a thin flexible instrument with an attached mini-video camera (an endoscope) is used to visualise the  insides of your digestive system. The specialist will first help you relax by giving you some medication through an injection in the arm before insertion the scope either through your mouth or anus.  You will be comfortable as you will be sedated throughout the entire procedure. 

Purpose of Endoscopy

Having a clear view will enable the specialist to decide if further treatment is necessary. At the same time a sample of tissue can be taken for examination (a biopsy) and small lumps called polyps can also be removed, if necessary, at the same seating.

Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy involves the use of a thin fibre-optic scope to examine the food pipe, stomach and the first segment of the small intestine for ulcers and inflammations. The procedure is painless as you will be sedated. More importantly, it can also detect the presence of Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria known to increase the risk of stomach cancer without showing any symptoms. If the bacteria is detected, it can be eradicated with a course of antibiotics.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy uses a thin fibreoptic scope to examine the entire large intestine. There is no pain or discomfort as you will be sedated. Screening for colon cancer is recommended at the age of 50 or even earlier, if you have a family history of colorectal cancer. It is safe and accurate, and can at the same time remove suspicious polyps for biopsy unlike alternatives like CT scans or stool occult blood tests. Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are commonly done together as a day procedure without the need for hospitalisation. Both are Medisave claimable and are covered by most medical insurances. Financial counselling will be provided during consultation.
