What is Direct Access Endoscopy and what are the benefits?

Do you require a gastroscopy or colonoscopy and would like an expedited pathway to treatment? Our Direct Access Endoscopy service at Central Sydney Private Hospital provides eligible self-funded and insured patients with this, without the need for an initial specialist consultation.

The following procedures are available under this program:

  • Gastroscopy: A gastroscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the throat, food pipe (oesophagus), and stomach, also known as the upper digestive tract. This test can assist in determining the source of your symptoms. A long, thin, flexible tube containing a small camera is inserted through the mouth, down the neck, and into the stomach. A gastroscopy can also be performed to obtain testing tissue (biopsy)
  • Colonoscopy: A colonoscopy is an examination performed to detect abnormalities in the colon and rectum, such as enlarged, irritated tissues, polyps, and cancer. During a colonoscopy, polyps and other types of abnormal tissue can be removed, if necessary, through the scope. During a colonoscopy, tissue samples (biopsies) can also be collected.
  • 胃镜检查 and Colonoscopy: commonly referred to as `Top & Tail’, is when both a gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are performed in one procedure.
