Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, our specialized doctors can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor.
We can often recommend endoscopy to evaluate:
- Stomach pain.
- Ulcers, gastritis, or difficulty swallowing.
- Digestive tract bleeding.
- Changes in bowel habits (chronic constipation or diarrhea).
- Polyps or growths in the colon.
