Endoscopy Endoscopy


Endoscopy is a valuable medical procedure that allows doctors to visualize and examine the internal organs and tissues of the body, helping to treat and diagnose a variety of medical conditions. 

During an endoscopy procedure, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it is inserted through the mouth, nose, or rectum, and guided to the area of interest. The camera captures images of the internal organs and tissues, which are transmitted to a monitor for the doctor to view. The doctor can then make a diagnosis or perform a treatment based on what is seen on the monitor.

Endoscopy is a safe procedure that is usually performed on an outpatient basis. It is minimally invasive, meaning that there is little, or no scarring and the recovery time is short. Most patients can return to normal activities the same day or the day after the procedure.
