Home / Procedures / Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy involves the use of a flexible tube to examine the upper intestinal tract including the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. The procedure is commonly undertaken if your doctor suspects that you have an ulcer, inflammation or other abnormality of the oesophagus (the pipe which connects the throat to the stomach), the stomach or duodenum. This procedure takes about 15min and is usually performed under sedation for maximum patient comfort. To find our more download our full information sheet.

All procedures at Riverview Endoscopy require a current GP referral.
