Gastroenterology looks at diseases and disorders of the digestive system. Gastroenterologists study the physiology of the gastrointestinal organs including how food is moving through the stomach and intestine, how nutrients are being digested and absorbed, how the waste is removed and the normal function of the liver.
At BMI Kings Park Hospital our Consultant Gastroenterologists have regular weekly clinics to help patients get answers and a diagnosis and perform any tests required on-site including an endoscopy/gastroscopy.
Our consultants also have access to other specialists including Consultant General Surgeons, Dieticians and Specialist Nurses. If any further treatment is required, we have minimal waiting time and everything is done at a time convenient to you.
