GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT
We know it is embarrassing to seek help about a problem related to your bottom, but symptoms related to the back passage are in fact very common and should not be ignored. SurgEase Innovations have partnered with the Wellness @The Clinic to provide FREE digital rectoscopy assessments, for those with eligible symptoms, so we can help reach a definitive diagnosis and put your mind at ease.
The LumenEye® X1 is the world’s first digital rigid rectoscope, which provides high-definition imaging of the lower gastrointestinal tract at the point-of-care. LumenEye® X1 works with SurgEase’s CHiP software, which is an interface enabling endoscopic images and videos to be securely transmitted over WiFi, facilitating virtual assistance from specialists, if a second opinion is needed. The technology is already in routine use in several NHS hospitals and community settings.
Why should I have rectoscopy?
Though benign conditions such as haemorrhoids are by far the most common cause of anorectal symptoms in young people, rarely it can be cancer and rates are unfortunately rising in younger people who are not currently eligible for screening. This means serious diseases, including cancer, are often detected at a much later stage with a worse prognosis. Other conditions such as proctitis (inflammation of the rectum), associated with inflammatory bowel disease as well as polyps can also be identified with this technology.

We wish to raise awareness about common diseases affecting the back passage and the rise in rectal cancer in young people. We specifically wish to target BAME groups who tend to present late to healthcare professionals due to cultural embarrassment regarding anorectal symptoms.
