Expert Diagnosis through Endoscopy
During an endoscopy, your physician will use an endoscope to view your upper digestive system, examining it for evidence of gastrointestinal diseases. This long flexible tube has a camera on the end that sends images to a monitor. Capsule endoscopy is an alternative method that involves swallowing a capsule that uses wireless technology to transmit images and leaves your body when you use the bathroom.
Endoscopy is a safe procedure that your physician may use to help diagnose the condition that is causing your specific symptoms. If biopsies are taken, these will be discussed with you once the results are received. It is advisable to have someone drive you to our Queens, NY facility on the day of your procedure since the sedatives that are administered may delay your reaction times.
