Gastroenterology is concerned with the digestive system and its disorders. Our consultants deal with all aspects of general gastroenterology (digestive system) and hepatology (liver). This includes outpatient clinics and the management of inpatients on the Northey Suite.
The department works closely with the gastrointestinal surgical department and specialist gastrointestinal radiologists. Services offered include:
- Gastroenterology outpatients
- Viral hepatitis and inflammatory bowel disease services
- ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography)
- Liver biopsy
- Therapeutic endoscopy
- Urea breath testing
- Oesophageal manometry
- 24-hour pH testing.
