Endoscopy is the term used to describe a medical procedure that uses a fine flexible tube, called an endoscope, which houses a light and camera in its tip. It is used to explore parts of the human body.
Gastroscopy is one such form of endoscopy and is one of the main procedures to look inside the oesophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine, called the duodenum.
A gastroscopy can be used to help with diagnosis if you have been experiencing any key symptoms of the stomach, or upper digestive system. It can also be used in the treatment of conditions.
It is always reassuring to know what to expect from an examination before you actually go. A specialist consultant will prepare you in advance and answer any questions.
For many years patients have been coming to Dr Anton Bungay for endoscopy examinations and expert advice and diagnosis on a range of gastroenterological conditions.
Feel reassured that you are not alone and that specialist help is available.
