Lakes DHB Gastroenterology

Public Service, Gastroenterology & Hepatology (Liver)


Within theatres there is a suite dedicated to endoscopic procedures which are camera tests looking into the gut. These are the best way to see what is going on inside the gut so help with diagnosing a condition and, in some cases, doing certain interventions. You will receive detailed instructions before any procedure. There are also specialised nurses in the unit able to support you throughout.
There is also a unit in Taupō Hospital where the doctors do endoscopic procedures on a regular visiting basis.
