Endoscopy

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a medical procedure that allows a doctor to observe the inside of the body without performing major surgery. Modern endoscopes are thin flexible tubes which employ fibre optic and digital video technology, and are introduced by natural openings such as the mouth or anus.
Dr Ramsay regularly performs upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy – gastroscopy and colonoscopy.
