A gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy is a type of medical procedure that assesses
the lining of the upper digestive tract. To ensure that the upper GI tract
is clear, a small, flexible tube will be inserted down a patient's
esophagus and into the stomach. A small camera mounted to the tube will
allow your physician to examine the internal lining of your digestive
tract, determine the cause of pain, swelling, or discomfort, as well as
prevent, treat, or diagnose digestive disease.
If you are experiencing any of the following, we can help diagnose the
issue and determine if a digestive problem needs to be addressed:
- Intense abdominal or chest pain
- Bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Problems swallowing or worsened throat pain
- Unexplained and severe weight loss
- Difficulty breathing or painful breathing
- Discolored or bloodied stool
Our digestive health services also include:
- Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
- Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopacreatograhpy (ERCP)
- Capsule Endoscopy
