In gastroenterology we care for patients with diseases or disorders of the digestive system, from the oesophagus or gullet to the colon, and including the liver, pancreas and gall bladder.

Frimley Park Hospital

At Frimley Park, we offer various therapeutic and diagnostic gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures. These are explorations of the upper or lower gut, via a flexible instrument (endoscope) which can be passed through the mouth or anus. Please refer to our Endoscopy page.

Conditions and treatments

We treat a range of conditions including inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease, peptic ulcer disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, cancer of the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas and large bowel, bile salt malabsorption and Barrett’s Oesophagus.

Our department

We provide a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient service. 

Barretts Oesophagus and Early Oesophageal cancer
An expert multidisciplinary team including Dr Susannah Woodrow and Mr Sukhpal Singh provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapeutics for the management of pre-cancerous and cancerous conditions of the upper GI tract.
