This procedure can help diagnose and treat various digestive conditions and is usually performed on an outpatient basis with conscious sedation to ensure your comfort. Don't hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment to determine if a gastroscopy is right for you. We are here to help you take control of your digestive health.
Gastroscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD, is a medical procedure that allows a doctor to examine the inside of the esophagus, stomach, and the upper part of the small intestine (duodenum). It is typically performed by a gastroenterologist, a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions of the digestive system.
During a gastroscopy, the doctor will use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which has a light and a camera on the end, to view the inside of the digestive tract. The endoscope is inserted through the mouth and passed down the esophagus, through the stomach, and into the duodenum.
Gastroscopy is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means you will not have to stay overnight in the hospital. It is usually performed under conscious sedation, which means you will be given medication to help you relax and be more comfortable during the procedure.
Gastroscopy is an important tool for diagnosing and treating conditions such as stomach ulcers, acid reflux, and swallowing problems. If you are experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, heartburn, difficulty swallowing, or unexplained weight loss, it may be worth discussing the possibility of a gastroscopy with your doctor.
