Welcome to Brindabella Endoscopy Centre

A Colonoscopy is an examination of the colon (large intestine) using a long, thin, flexible tube with a camera called a colonoscope.
A gastroscopy is an examination of the upper digestive tract (the oesophagus, the stomach and duodenum) using a long, thin, flexible tube with a camera called a gastroscope.
A haemorrhoidectomy is the surgical removal of haemorrhoids under anaesthetic.
There is no one recommended screening test for gastric cancer. Screening and diagnostic tests for oesophageal and gastric cancer can be performed via endoscopy. Other screening methods include barium swallow/upper GI x-ray or endoscopic ultrasound.
Polyps are growths on the inside of the colon or gastrointestinal tract and are very common. A polypectomy can be performed during a colonoscopy or gastroscopy procedure.
