Understanding Gastroenterology treatments at Sevenoaks
The gastroenterology specialists at Sevenoaks Medical Centre are leaders in their field in research and treatment, supporting you from diagnosis through to dietary advice.
We provide treatments for digestive disorders, which are minimally invasive. We also lead in neurogastroenterology research that focuses on the relationship between the central nervous system and gut. This covers motility and functional bowel disorders, like functional dyspepsia and IBS. Sevenoaks Medical Centres’ multidisciplinary team also provides patients with comprehensive, tailored dietary advice.
Procedures we use to examine and treat gastroenterology-related conditions include:
Colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy – both techniques are performed by inserting a flexible tube through the rectum. This allows the consultant to examine the rectum and colon, take biopsies and remove polyps – an abnormal growth of tissue.
Bowel cancer screening – with techniques such as stool analysis and colonoscopy, we are able to diagnose bowel cancer. Specialists can take biopsies and remove polyps, during the colonoscopy, before they become malignant.
Dietetic Advice -We offer flexible one-to-one consultations with our dietetics experts to discuss a patient’s dietary needs with them. This allows our dietitians to assess and plan a suitable course of action.
