A Minimally Invasive Look Inside
An endoscopy allows the doctor to see images inside your gastrointestinal tract, and it can contribute to the doctor’s decision on the best treatment plan.
Our highly trained internal medicine physicians and gastroenterologists perform endoscopies to confirm a diagnosis, conduct a biopsy or remove a foreign object from your digestive system. This includes the esophagus, stomach and small and large intestines.
This is a minimally invasive procedure. A thin, flexible tube called an endoscope is equipped with a light and video camera and inserted into your body. This allows the doctor to see images inside and record them for review in order to determine a further course of action.
Your primary care doctor can discuss your options to select an endoscopist.
