Comprehensive care for patients with digestive disorders and gastrointestinal problems and disease.

21 Wellington Road , St Johns Wood , London, NW8 9SQ

Welcome to The Wellington Digestive Health Centre

The Wellington Hospital is home to one of the UK's largest private gastrointestinal (GI) centres, equipped to treat the full range of digestive and gastrointestinal diseases. We specialise in every aspect of gastrointestinal care working with some of world’s leading consultants from London’s distinguished NHS teaching hospitals who treat patients from across the UK and all over the world.

Double-Balloon Enteroscopy

The Wellington Hospital is honoured to be the first private hospital in the UK to offer Double-Balloon Enteroscopy, an advanced endoscopic procedure that allows consultants to visualise and examine the entire small bowel in real time without the need for invasive surgery. This revolutionary procedure enables diagnosis and treatment of digestive health conditions.

This procedure is usually performed following a finding in the small bowel after a video capsule endoscopy or scan, in order to treat or biopsy. The consultant will access the small bowel through your mouth or rectum, and the technique involves the use of a balloon at the end of an endoscope (a flexible tube with a high-quality video camera) and an overtube.
