From £2,230.00

A flexible sigmoidoscopy is a procedure to look at the inside of the left, lower part of your colon (large bowel) using a flexible telescope. A flexible sigmoidoscopy is a good way of finding out if there is a problem in the lower part of your large bowel.



A flexible sigmoidoscopy usually takes 15 to 20 minutes.

The endoscopist will place a flexible telescope (endoscope) into your back passage. Air will be blown into your large bowel to help the endoscopist have a clear view. The endoscopist will be able to look for problems such as inflammation or polyps. They will be able to perform biopsies and take photographs to help make the diagnosis.
