Conditions We Treat

We Offer Comprehensive Treatment for Bowel, Haemorrhoids, Paediatric and Other Conditions

Our specialist team is experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of gastrointestinal conditions. Below is a brief description of each of them. You will hear more about your condition and how we treat it during your consultation.

Bowel Cancer

New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of bowel cancer in the world. Fortunately, bowel cancer is highly curable if detected early. Early detection is key. At Endoscopy on Clarence, we understand the importance of early detection, and pride ourselves on offering timely access to care.

We also offer the latest in diagnostic technology and advanced endoscopic treatments to provide our patients with the best chances of having a successful procedure.

Rectal Bleeding

Rectal bleeding can be a scary symptom to experience, but it’s important to remember that it can have many benign causes such as haemorrhoidal disease. However, it is also a symptom of Bowel Cancer which is why it’s so important to see your doctor right away.

Your specialist can perform a Colonoscopy to determine the cause of your bleeding. Rest assured that you’re taking the right steps to stay healthy by seeking medical attention straight away. With prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment, most conditions that cause rectal bleeding can be effectively managed. Ask your doctor to refer you to us if you have rectal bleeding.


Haemorrhoids are a common ailment, and for most people, they clear up on their own or with relatively conservative treatment measures without any intervention. However, some cases require medical attention, and in those instances, a minor procedure such as banding of internal haemorrhoids may be necessary.

Symptoms can include bleeding, prolapse, mucous discharge, irritation and itching, pain and discomfort, and one or more lumps near the anus. Because some of these symptoms are similar to bowel cancer, it’s vital you see your doctor if you have any. If you require a procedure, your specialist will fully explain it so you know what to expect.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory Bowel Disease is a common condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. It’s a term used to describe inflammation that occurs anywhere along the digestive tract, which can cause disruptions in the normal process of breaking down food, extracting nutrients, and removing waste. There are effective treatments available that can help manage symptoms and improve your quality of life.

A specialist can help identify the cause of your symptoms and determine the best course of action, which may include performing a Colonoscopy or Gastroscopy to achieve a diagnosis. With the right treatment plan, you can feel confident and reassured that help is available to manage your symptoms and improve your overall well-being.

Functional Bowel Disorder

If you’re experiencing symptoms like nausea, feeling bloated, stomach pain, constipation, or diarrhoea, you may have a Functional Bowel Disorder (FBD). It’s important to know that FBD’s are quite common and can affect anyone. The different types of FBD include Chronic Constipation, Faecal Incontinence, Defecatory Disorders, Functional Dyspepsia, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

While FBD’s can be quite uncomfortable, it’s reassuring to know that all organs are functioning normally, provided also that other causes for these symptoms are excluded which might include the need for a Gastroscopy and/or Colonoscopy. There are a variety of treatments available to help manage the symptoms and improve your quality of life.
