Upper GI Endoscopy

GI Endoscopy is a procedure that enables the doctor to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach and the first portion of small intestine.

After an anesthesiologist sedates you, a flexible tube-like camera (about the thickness of a little finger) is passed through your mouth and into the stomach. The procedure usually lasts 10 minutes, and patients are asleep. The endoscope can be used to evaluate hiatal hernias, ulcers, strictures, and study previous stomach surgeries. It can be very helpful in delineating the size and shape of the stomach for those who require revision surgery.

If you have acid reflux, stomach ulcers, abdominal pain of uncertain origin, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about appropriate diagnosis and treatment options.
