Endoscopy

Overview

We provide a range of endoscopic procedures for diagnosis and treatment.

You may have a tissue sample (biopsy) taken for analysis at a laboratory.

Most endoscopic procedures take place in our unit at St Thomas' Hospital using modern techniques and technology.

We also do some procedures in the day surgery unit at Guy's Hospital.

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust.
