The Endoscopy service provides endoscopic procedures for people across Tayside and North East Fife at Ninewells Hospital, Perth Royal Infirmary and Stracathro Hospital (cystoscopy only).
The service performs a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, radio frequency ablation, ERCP, bronchoscopy/endoscopic bronchial ultrasound, thoracoscopy, urology, PEG, endoscopic ultrasound and endoscopic mucosal resection.
These are carried out by endoscopists, bronchoscopists and urologists and can be medical doctors, surgeons, associate physicians or specialised nurses. They are all part of the Tayside Endoscopy Team.
