Upper Endoscopy

Upper endoscopy is a test used to examine the upper portion of your gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach and duodenum). You will be given a sedative and then an endoscope (thin, flexible tube with a light and camera) is passed through your mouth to examine the effected section of digestive tract and images are obtained for evaluation. Your physician may also take biopsies (samples of tissue) to evaluate for cell changes, certain bacteria, ulcers and other conditions. Upper endoscopy is used to evaluate numerous conditions and treat some conditions such as trouble swallowing.
