Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy at Oaks Hospital

A colonoscopy is an outpatient procedure that examines your large bowel for changes or abnormalities such as colon polyps and bowel cancer.

Our expert and experienced consultants diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that affect the bowel, and routinely perform colonoscopies.

We understand that having a colonoscope can be an anxious time. We offer convenient appointments without waiting, we guide you through the examination with full explanations about what is happening, and we have a fast turnaround of biopsy results to get your diagnosis or the all-clear swiftly.

Your safety is of paramount importance to us throughout your visit to our hospitals. We operate strict protocols to control and prevent infection. You will be advised of our latest procedures before you come into hospital. All of our colonoscopes are thoroughly disinfected with detergents and chemicals to kill any bacteria and viruses.
