An endoscopy is a procedure that looks inside a patient’s body for diagnostic purposes and uses an instrument called an endoscope to perform certain operations. An endoscope is a long, flexible tube, about the size of your index finger, with a camera at one end. Depending on the procedure, the endoscope will be inserted through a body opening, such as the mouth or anus, or through a small incision in the skin. The procedure offers a minimally invasive alternative to surgery and requires only mild sedation.
The Endoscopy Centre at The Princess Grace Hospital offers a full range of endoscopic services and is designed to combine a caring environment with world-class facilities. Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed in the centre include capsule endoscopy, gastroscopy, diagnostic EUS (endoscopic ultrasound), ERCP, cystoscopy, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, neuro gastro physiology, PEG insertion and NJ tube insertion.
