About Endoscopy

 

The Endoscopy Department offers a complete range of high-quality diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic services.

 

Endoscopy is the term that is used to describe the direct visual examination of any part of the inside of the body that can be reached through a natural orifice. This can be through:

  • the mouth into the stomach (a gastroscopy),
  • through the anus into the large bowel (a colonoscopy) or
  • through the nose into the lungs (a bronchoscopy).
  • Another examination that is performed by the endoscopy staff is ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography), which is a test to examine the tubes that drain bile from your liver and digestive juices from your pancreas.

 

Finding the department

 

Endoscopy is located on level 3 of the Addenbrooke's Treatment Centre (ATC)

 

From the main hospital entrance: To access the Atrium and the ATC reception desk, staff and patients should continue down the 'clown' corridor on level 2, walk past the Rosie turning and into the Atrium.

 

The passenger lifts are situated across the Atrium on the right hand side, opposite the PALS office.

 

Located off the Atrium are two sets of stair wells; one is located through the set of double doors adjacent to the passenger lifts, the other is situated on the other side of the Atrium opposite the payphones.

 

Take the stairs or lift to level 3. The Endoscopy reception desk is located in the hall outside of the lifts.

 

From the Treatment Centre car park: Enter the Treatment Centre through the main entrance which is directly across the road (Keith Day Way) from the car park.
