Small Bowel Enteroscopy

Small bowel enteroscopy allows clinicians a direct look at the small intestine using a lighted, flexible tube with a tiny camera that transmits pictures of the small intestine to a video screen.

The Doctor can examine the small intestine for ulcers, inflammation or disease.

Clinicians can also take small samples (biopsy) of the tissue to look for infection, illness or early signs of cancer. During the procedure patients receive a mild sedative and pain medication for comfort.

A Registered Nurse assists the doctor during the procedure and a Sedationist/Anaesthetist monitors vital signs.

The examination is performed via a scope down the mouth similar to a Gastroscopy.
