Find the Cause of Digestive Issues

An upper endoscopy is one of our best tools for examining and evaluating the digestive tract and detecting any problems that could be causing your throat, stomach, or other digestive issues.

Why Do You Need An Upper Endoscopy?

There are some stomach, intestinal, and esophageal issues that our patients experience that we are unable to properly diagnose with a consultation or physical exam alone. Sometimes further diagnostic testing is required to get to the heart of the problems.

Here are a few situations where our team may recommend getting an upper endoscopy:

What to Expect

The Day of Your Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy is only minimally invasive.

  1. When you arrive, we will make sure you feel comfortable and respected.
  2. We will take your vital signs.
  3. You’ll receive pain medication and sedation to help you relax.
  4. A thin, flexible tube with a camera attached is carefully inserted into the throat and down into the stomach so we can examine the lining and look for ulcers, bleeds, or other problems.

This procedure will take 15 minutes to over an hour to complete.

We will discuss what we found during your upper endoscopy immediately following your procedure.
