About Us

Nobel Gastroenterology Centre treats individuals with digestive, bowel and liver problems. Our medical team is helmed by Dr Eric Wee, a Senior Consultant and Specialist in Gastroenterology. 

We aim to deliver quality and affordable care to our patients. Our comprehensive consultations and targeted treatments are highly personalised, and tailored to the specific needs of the individual.

Nobel Gastroenterology Centre is equipped with the Carbon-13 Urea Breath Test (UBT) and FibroScan® 530 machine.

Our Carbon-13 UBT machine detects Helicobacter Pylori, a bacteria commonly associated with gastric pain, indigestion, bloating, ulcers and stomach cancer. Unlike the Carbon-14 UBT which is radioactive, our test is free of radiation and safe for children.

The Fibroscan® test is a painless procedure, which measures the amount of liver fibrosis (liver stiffness). Vital information obtained from this test, allows our specialist to decide on the most appropriate treatment. In addition, our  machine is able to quantify the amount of liver fat using the Controlled Attenuation Parameter technology.

This assessment is useful in individuals with liver problems, and is performed during the FibroScan® procedure at no additional cost.
