Exceptional care for digestive diseases

Recent advances in technology and treatments are transforming the world of gastroenterology and gastrointestinal (GI) surgery. GI conditions, also known as digestive diseases, is one of the largest, most diverse of London Bridge Hospital’s specialties. Here, we’re fortunate to work with some of world’s leading GI consultants all subspecialising in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions of the digestive tract.

We’re privileged to be located in proximity of four distinguished NHS teaching hospitals, so access to these leading consultants is unparalleled. If you’re worried about any potential cancer symptoms, we will direct you to the best consultant gastroenterologist or colorectal specialist quickly. GI falls broadly into the following categories:

  • Upper GI (oesophago-gastric: oesophagus and stomach)
  • Small intestine (duodenum, jejunum and ileum)
  • Large intestine (colon and rectum)
