To Make an Appointment

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, or PEG, is a procedure that involves the placement of a feeding tube via an opening in the abdominal wall. This tube serves as a passage for nutritional fluids and medicine. The procedure helps to bypass the mouth and the oesophagus 


  • The procedure is performed under the influence of anaesthesia so that you will not feel any pain or discomfort. 
  • An endoscopic probe with a light source on one of its ends is used to carefully introduce the feeding tube into the abdomen. 
  • The tube is then carefully secured in position. 

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy can help patients with swallowing difficulties to make up for their nutritional needs.
