Upper GI Procedures

Little do we lesser mortals know that upper endoscopy is in reality a simple procedure in which a gastroenterologist examines the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, and duodenum

(first portion of small bowel) using a thin, flexible tube called the upper endoscope through which the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum can be viewed using a TV monitor. It presumes an empty stomach; mostly one must fast six hours or more before the procedure.

  • It is a painful procedure
    On the contrary, most people complain about discomfort because of the insertion, rather than pain. The lightweight, supply device doesn’t hamper breathing
  • It is a superfluous exercise
    False! In fact, it has been known to occasionally avert the need for exploratory surgery. Our surgeons also recommend a tissue sample to check H. pylori infection, believed to be the main cause of stomach or duodenal ulcers
  • It’s not advised for children
    Absolutely false! Endoscopy has nothing to do with age and is absolutely safe for children
