Gastroscopy and colonoscopy are common day procedures where a thin, flexible tube is used to examine the inner lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Dr Haifer performs procedures at Double Bay Day Hospital, St Vincent's Hospital and Riverina Day Surgery.

Capsule endoscopy is a non-invasive procedure that uses a small wireless camera the size of a vitamin pill that is swallowed. It is used to examine the small bowel which is difficult to access with a gastroscopy or colonoscopy.

Intestinal Ultrasound

Dr Haifer has accreditation under the International Bowel Ultrasound Group (IBUS) to perform bowel ultrasound. This is an non-invasive way to assess and monitor bowel inflammation in diseases such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.
