BRAVO pH testing is a minimally invasive investigation that evaluates the level of acidity in your oesophagus. Gastroenterologists at The London Clinic use the test to discover why you may have acid reflux, heartburn or problems swallowing. It is often used in conjunction with oesophageal manometry, so that your consultant gets more detailed information about the health and function of your oesophagus.
The clinic has a state-of-the-art bronchoscopy suite, offering fibre-optic, flexible bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound, and auto-fluorescence bronchoscopy, which can detect lung cancer at an earlier stage.
A capsule endoscopy is a pain-free, minimally-invasive investigation of the small bowel. By swallowing a pill-sized capsule containing a tiny, wireless camera, the entire small intestine can be filmed in detail. This allows our gastroenterologists to diagnose conditions affecting the small bowel, with fewer side effects than traditional investigations.

The duodenal switch is the most drastic of all forms of bariatric surgery. It is often done in the most obese patients as the second operation in a two-stage procedure. The first stage is a sleeve gastrectomy.
Specific treatment depends on whether the duodenal ulcer is caused by the bacteria, the painkillers or a combination of both.
An endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is an investigation that combines two types of tests, endoscopy and ultrasound. It enables The London Clinic’s consultants to perform more detailed examinations of the lungs or the upper digestive system.

Not everyone who needs to lose weight is eligible for extensive weight loss surgery, and not all want to take this drastic step.

A gastric band is intermediate between the gastric balloon and more extensive bariatric surgery. It involves a general anaesthetic and laparoscopic surgery but recovery is rapid and the band can be adjusted or removed in the future as required.
A gastric bypass separates off a major part of the stomach, creating a small stomach pouch that reduces the amount of food you can eat.
A gastroscopy is an examination of the upper section of the gastrointestinal tract. Using a flexible camera, The London Clinic’s expert endoscopists can closely inspect the oesophagus, stomach and the top of the small bowel for inflammation, cancer, ulcers and any other abnormalities.
