Endoscopy at Albyn
There can be few people who relish the thought of an endoscopy process, but the professional, highly experienced and supportive team at Albyn Hospital are on hand to make the process as stress-free as possible. All procedures are performed by experienced consultant gastroenterologists or general surgeons.
Endoscopy is an explorative procedure which involves examining the digestive tract using a small flexible camera.
Albyn has invested in the latest endoscopic high-definition technology equipment offering exceptional image quality. Endoscopic examinations take place in a controlled theatre environment, using a scope guide where patient comfort is monitored throughout. The patient and their wishes are central to the process, with the level of sedation thoroughly discussed, and patient choice respected. Safety is the utmost priority, with consultants taking time to explain what will happen and alleviating any anxieties.
Albyn Hospital offers a range of diagnostic and therapeutic therapy for patients with varying symptoms including: bowel cancer screening, altered bowel habit, persistent loose stool, blood in stool, acid reflux, abdominal pain or bloating with unexplained weight loss, difficulty swallowing, anaemia with an unknown source and many other gastroenterology disorders. Albyn can also reduce the wait and the worry, if you need rapid access to an endoscopic procedure the waiting list is under two weeks long.
Albyn Hospital is part of BMI Healthcare, the UK’s largest independent provider of private healthcare, and 98.4% of patients rated the overall quality of their care as excellent or very good.
