Upper GI Endoscopy

Direct access no-gap upper gi endoscopy is available for most insured patients.

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, also known as gastroscopy, is a procedure used to view the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum; which form the upper part of the digestive tract. The procedure is performed with an instrument called an endoscope; a thin flexible tube with a small camera and light source attached to its tip.

Gastroscopy is performed under sedation, as a day only procedure. You will need to fast to ensure the stomach is empty for the procedure. While you are asleep, the endoscope is gently advanced for your doctor to view the upper digestive tract. Depending on the findings, biopsies may be taken and sent to pathology. We also perform therapeutic endoscopy to directly treat bleeding, remove foreign bodies and dilate strictures, when needed.
