Gastroscopy Plan

Gastric conditions are amongst the commonest medical presentations to primary care doctors. Benign conditions such as gastritis, indigestion and heartburn are commonly encountered and once Helicobacter pylori infection is identified and treated, the symptoms can be effectively relieved and the risk of developing stomach cancer can be significantly reduced.

Who should have Gastroscopy?

Patients of any age with persistent or intermittent epigastric pain, indigestion, and heartburn should consider to have a gastroscopy. Other indications include anaemia, difficulty in swallowing and unexplained weight loss.

What is included in the Gastroscopy Plan?

Our Gastroscopy plan covers the performance of the procedure under Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) which is a form of sedation that put patients to sleep. Patients will be able to breathe on their own without the need of a ventilator or breathing tube. In recent years, MAC has gained wide acceptance and become a popular choice of sedation for patients who undergo endoscopy due to its higher comfort level.

Gastroscopy will include the examination of the inside upper digestive tract using fibreoptic equipment to scrutinise the oesophagus (gullet), stomach and first part of the small intestine (duodenum). This allows the doctors to have direct vision and to detect pathological changes, e.g. oesophagus for reflux changes and oesophagitis, stomach and duodenum for inflammation, erosions, ulcers, polyps and cancer etc. During the procedure, polyps will be removed and any pathology worth further testing such as oesophagitis will be biopsied. For all patients, the CLO test, a rapid test for diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori, will be performed.

Our all-inclusive fee includes doctor's procedure charges, facility charges, all material costs and pathology fees for any number of polyps and biopsies. Our specialist will meet the client at the pre-procedure consultation in order to carefully understand his / her medical history, analyze whether a gastroscopy is suitable to the client, and explain the process, patient preparation and precautions in detail should the gastroscopy is recommended. At the follow-up consultation, our specialist will entail detailed explanation of testing results and advice on the management plan for the client.
