There are many reasons patients may need to visit an interventional endoscopist. The interventional endoscopist London patients choose may depend on their GP or a personal choice, depending on referral. Dr Rehan Haidry is a highly experienced interventional endoscopist with significant experience and a commitment to innovation in the field. Let’s look more closely at interventional endoscopy and why a patient may need this procedure.

What is Interventional Endoscopy?

Interventional endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that gastroenterologists use for diagnosis or treatment. It is often the best choice for complex gastrointestinal procedures. It avoids the need for major surgery. Furthermore, as this area of medicine becomes even more innovative, more complex procedures become possible. Therefore, it can help patients avoid major surgery. It can also minimise the long-term side effects and impact that surgery often causes. Most endoscopic procedures can take place on an outpatient basis. This type of procedure can treat a range of conditions and diseases, including:

  • Zenker’s diverticulum
  • Early-stage gastrointestinal cancers
  • Barrett’s Oesophagus
  • Oesophageal Strictures
  • Some bariatric procedures

You may also find that endoscopic procedures are used to diagnose a condition. It can help to see the inside of the oesophagus and the stomach. With the simple insertion of the endoscope down the throat, the doctor can quickly diagnose a range of conditions or take biopsies for further testing.
