Understanding Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure utilized to examine the digestive tract. It offers a clear view of internal structures using an endoscope—a flexible tube equipped with a camera and light source. This innovative technology enables doctors at LGI Hospital to diagnose and treat various gastrointestinal disorders with precision and accuracy.

Exploring Types of Endoscopy

At LGI Hospital, we offer a diverse range of endoscopic procedures, including:

Upper Endoscopy (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD)

This procedure involves inserting an endoscope through the mouth to examine the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. It’s invaluable for detecting conditions such as ulcers, inflammation, and tumors in the upper digestive tract.

Colonoscopy

Through the insertion of an endoscope into the rectum, doctors at LGI Hospital can visualize the colon and rectum, aiding in the detection of polyps, colorectal cancer, and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

ERCP is a specialized procedure used to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the bile ducts, pancreas, and gallbladder. It’s particularly beneficial for identifying and removing gallstones, as well as addressing issues with bile ducts.

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Combining endoscopy with ultrasound imaging, EUS at LGI Hospital provides detailed views of the digestive tract and adjacent structures. This procedure assists in the diagnosis and staging of gastrointestinal cancers, as well as guiding therapeutic interventions.

Endoscopy Side Effects

While endoscopy is generally considered a safe procedure, there are potential side effects and risks associated with it. It's essential to be aware of these possibilities and discuss them with your doctor before undergoing an endoscopic examination.
Common side effects may include:

It’s important to discuss any concerns or questions about potential side effects with your healthcare provider before undergoing an endoscopic procedure. Your medical team will take steps to minimize risks and ensure your safety throughout the examination process.
