Endoscopy

An Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure used to examine a patient's digestive tract. The provider uses a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it that passes through the mouth and throat and into the esophagus.  The provider is able to examine the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine.  Different types of endoscopy can be performed, they include: Diagnostic & Therapeutic Endoscopy; Esophageal Dilatation; and Polypectomy.
