Endoscopy

    About the Treatment

    Endoscopy is undertaken to understand the health issue in a specific organ by inserting an endoscope (metal device with a camera) into the selected organ through the oesophagus, urinary bladder or intestine.

  • The patient is advised not to consume anything 4-5 hours before the procedure.
  • The patient may be prescribed laxatives or asked to stop blood-thinning medications before the procedure.

Mild sedation is used for the procedure and may take up to 1-3 hours. The procedure is mostly painless; however the patient may experience some discomfort. It may take the patient 1-2 hours post the procedure to recover from the anaesthesia.

  • It takes up to 1-2 hours for the patient to recover from the anaesthesia and sit up straight.
  • The sedation can cause nausea and indigestion.
  • The patient should rest the whole day after the procedure.
