A gastroscopy is a procedure that enables your doctor to examine the lining of the oesophagus (food pipe), stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine). After administering a gentle sedation, a thin flexible tube called an endoscope is passed through your mouth into your stomach and duodenum. The endoscope is fitted with a camera which sends images allowing your specialist to make a careful inspection. Depending on the reason for your procedure, small tissue samples (biopsies) may be taken.

The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. Due to the sedation, you will need to organise for someone to collect you after the procedure.

To make a booking for a gastroscopy, you will require a current referral from your doctor.

Your referral can be emailed to [email protected], faxed to 9468 9701 or attached to the CONTACT US form below.

Once your referral has been received, our friendly staff will contact you to organise an appointment.

Wait times for a procedure are typically 2-3 weeks.
