Upper GI Procedures

Upper GI Endoscopy India | Gastroscopy | Endoscopy Center
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, supple 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
