Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor.

During an upper endoscopy, an endoscope is easily passed through the mouth and throat and into the esophagus, allowing the doctor to view the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine.

There are several types of endoscopes. The length and flexibility of the endoscope depends on the part of the body the doctor needs to see. For example, an endoscope that helps a doctor examine the joints is often rigid. However, one used to view the inside of the colon is flexible.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
