Diagnostic Endoscopy Centre

The Diagnostic Endoscopy Centre (DEC) has been providing excellence in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy since 1990. The DEC provides a comprehensive treatment for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disease. Our location within St Vincent’s Clinic ensures access to St Vincent’s Private and St Vincent’s Public Hospital is available for supplementary care.
