  • EGD

    An esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is an endoscopic procedure done to examine the esophagus, stomach and upper small intestine (duodenum). It’s performed using a thin, flexible viewing instrument called an endoscope. The tip of the endoscope is inserted through your mouth and then gently moved down your throat into the esophagus, stomach, and upper gastrointestinal tract.

    Using the endoscope, your doctor can look for ulcers, inflammation, tumors, infection, or bleeding. Tissue samples can be collected, polyps can be removed, and bleeding can be treated through the endoscope. Endoscopy can reveal problems that do not show up on  X-ray tests, and it can sometimes eliminate the need for exploratory surgery.
