The endoscopy unit at BMI The South Cheshire Private Hospital performs a range of common procedures and surgeries. The unit includes a procedures room and a three-bay recovery area.
An endoscopy is a procedure where an instrument called an endoscope is used to examine the inside of your body. The instrument is a long, thin, flexible tube with a light and camera at one end.
An endoscopy can be used to investigate unusual symptoms, help perform certain types of surgery, and remove a small sample of tissue for further investigation. The following procedures are available at BMI The South Cheshire Private Hospital’s endoscopy unit:
Endoscopy is a multidisciplinary specialty. Our Consultant Gastroenterologists and General Surgeons are supported by our experienced nursing team, and together they take pride in offering exceptional levels of patient care.
Most endoscopic procedures are performed under sedation, although in some circumstances a local or general anaesthetic may be required. We keep patients fully informed of the process at all times, and aim to put your mind at ease to ensure everything is as stress free as possible. We access decontamination facilities at a new hub which services local BMI hospitals.
