OUR DEDICATED ENDOSCOPY UNIT

The London Clinic Endoscopy Unit is a purpose-built facility which allows complete examination of either the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract or the lower GI tract. 

An endoscopy is used to investigate all parts of the digestive system. Upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy and lower GI endoscopy (colonoscopy) are generally performed by physician or surgeon gastroenterologists who have specialised in these techniques.

Saturday appointments now available

Our Endoscopy unit is open six days a week. 

We are the only dedicated private hospital to be able to offer comprehensive endoscopy services on a Saturday. 

Having a Saturday service gives patients more flexibility and choice.  This is particularly useful for those patients who find it difficult having time off during the working week.

What the Endoscopy Unit can help with

Gastroenterologists at The London Clinic offer screening for bowel cancer or diagnosis and treatment for diseases that affect any part of the digestive system, which include the oesophagus, stomach, colon and rectum.

Some of our consultants specialise in endoscopic examination of the small bowel and of the pancreatic and bile ducts.

With over 40 years of gastrointestinal (known as GI) Endoscopy service experience, The London Clinic is the only independent private healthcare provider offering a Saturday Endoscopy service for its patients.

 The Endoscopy Unit carries out on average 35 to 40 procedures a day with a 98% - 100% patient satisfaction rate.

We offer procedures not yet available in most private healthcare providers such as: ERCPSpyglassUGI, and Stretta.

Endoscopic investigations

Our specialist consultants offer all forms of endoscopic investigation to diagnose problems with the digestive system:

Detailed examination of the lungs, pancreas and stomach can be made. Biopsies may be taken.

This is an examination of the bile and pancreatic ducts, allowing the injection of dye, stone removal and other samples to be taken.
