Treatments & Procedures:
- Bowel Cancer Screening Colonoscopy – Dr. Hayee is specifically accredited for bowel cancer screening in the UK, which is amongst the best and most regulated programmes worldwide.
- Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) or Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD): Removal of large polyps or early cancers from the stomach, duodenum or colon without the need for surgery
- POEM: Endoscopic procedure for treatment of achalasia, a condition where the ring of muscle (sphincter) at the bottom of the oesophagus (food-pipe) is overactive. The ring becomes bulkier and does not open normally, so food cannot pass easily.
- G-POEM: Endoscopic procedure for treatment of gastroparesis, a relatively common condition where the stomach does not empty in the normal way resulting in food passing through the stomach much more slowly than normal. Gastroparesis results in feeling full very quickly, a loss of appetite, bloating, stomach pain and can often cause vomiting and eventual weight loss.
- Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty: A newer type of weight-loss procedure. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty reduces the size of the stomach using an endoscopic suturing device without the need for surgery.
- Stretta: A non-surgical treatment for acid reflux. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy (RFE) to stimulate and eventually strengthen the ring of muscle at the end of the oesophagus to improve reflux.
