Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows a doctor to observe the inside of the body. An endoscope (fibrescope) is a long flexible tube with a lense at one end and a video camera at the other.

Dr Jordaan performs Endoscopy at Pindara and Gold Coast Private Hospitals. This procedure, in almost all cases, is a day procedure.

Gastroscopies require patients to fast for 6 hours prior to surgery.

If you have private health insurance your endoscopy procedure will be directly billed to your health fund, with no out-of-pocket cost to you for Dr Jordaan's services.

Dr Jordaan no longer performs colonoscopies.
