On occasion, certain types of endoscopic procedures (such as double balloon enteroscopy which takes time to complete), patient preference (because of a bad experience, existing phobia, severe anxiety or intolerance) or past history (multiple surgeries, complex anatomy), means performing endoscopy under a short acting general anaesthetic (GA) or propofol deep sedation (provided by one of the anaesthetists Dr Fraser works closely with) is a better option for the patient. This helps to ensure a successful endoscopic examination and avoids the need to make a further attempt.

Dr Fraser is happy to arrange a patient's endoscopy test under a short acting GA or propofol deep sedation in the appropriate circumstances.
