What We Do

Monash Gastrointestinal Specialists provides clients with a range of different services, including both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Used to diagnose many different ailments, endoscopic procedures are one of our main areas of expertise. Endoscopy essentially allows the doctor to observe you internally without having to resort to surgery – meaning it is generally quite non-invasive.

Endoscopic procedures we offer include the following:

What is a colonoscopy?
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic procedure used to inspect and examine the lining of the large bowel (colon). It is performed through the use of a long flexible tube with a light and camera at the end (endoscope).
What is a gastroscopy?
A gastroscopy is an endoscopic procedure used to examine upper sections of the digestive/gastrointestinal tract. The organs examined are the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. It is performed through the use of a long flexible tube (called an endoscope) with a light and camera at the end.
What is capsule endoscopy?
Capsule endoscopy is a recently developed non-invasive technique to examine the lining of the small bowel. The most common use is to examine the small bowel in cases of iron deficiency where gastroscopy and colonoscopy have failed to identify a cause.
