Latest News

Gastrohealth Hobart is always at the forefront of GI endoscopy, bringing the latest and most advanced diagnostic and treatment in GI endoscopy to our patients in Hobart. We are proud to announce that, in collaboration with Hobart Specialist Day Hospital, Dr. Yee has performed the first case of TXI diagnostic endoscopy in Southern Tasmania, using the most advanced endoscopy system from OLYMPUS medical, the EVIS XI system. TXI endoscopy is considered as the new standard of care in diagnostic endoscopy, improving detection and characterisation of lesions. Both Dr. Yee and Dr. McCulloch have endoscopy lists at Hobart Specialist Day Hospital.
