Endoscopic therapy for bleeding and biliary problems
We have a full range of endoscopic services, including a 24-hour emergency gastrointestinal bleeding service provided by the on-call consultant hepatology or gastroenterology team. The biliary diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy service includes on-site endoscopic ultrasound scan (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), using the most up-to-date equipment, as well as oesophageal stenting, for bleeding varices. Small bowel endoscopy is undertaken with ‘pill’ endoscopy – a small digital camera inside a small capsule which is swallowed and sends images to a computer.
