Endoscopy is a technique used in diagnosing and treating several medical conditions. The procedure is non-surgical and is used to examine organs of the digestive track. This is done using a thin, flexible tube that has a light and camera at the end used for getting a detailed view of the inside of the body.
Endoscopies are frequently needed to assess the nature and severity of reflux disease. They are used as a part of our preoperative workup, intraoperatively to ensure proper wrap formation and postoperatively for further assessment.
We offer the ability to perform endoscopies inside of our office under anesthesia to ensure a thorough, safe experience.
WHEN WOULD I NEED AN ENDOSCOPY?
When treating acid reflux, there are unique considerations to keep in mind. We strive to fully understand the needs and requirements of our patients. If you require an endoscopy as part of your treatment, our team of medical professionals will perform the procedure in the privacy of our own center. You will find this more private, comfortable and convenient. This is one of the many services we deliver to go the extra mile for you.
