These may include colon polyps, gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn), colitis, gallbladder and biliary tract disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), peptic ulcer disease and pancreatitis. They also perform ligation of haemorrhoids. Endoscopy includes colonoscopy, gastroscopy, gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy and sigmoidoscopy. As part of the procedure, biopsies may be taken. Results will be communicated by your consultant within three weeks. Polyps can also be removed at the time as part of the endoscopic procedure.
