Southern Cross Hospital Wellington - Paediatric Surgery

Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

Sigmoidoscopy

A long, narrow tube with a tiny camera attached (sigmoidoscope) is inserted into the anus and moved through the lower large intestine (bowel). This allows the surgeon a view of the lining of the lower large intestine (sigmoid colon). If necessary, a biopsy (small piece of tissue) may be taken for examination in the laboratory.
