What is Endoscopy?

An endoscopy is a treatment where your doctor examines and operates on your body's internal organs and arteries using specialised instruments. An endoscope is guided inside the body through a small incision or an opening in the body, such as the mouth. It is a flexible tube with a camera attached that allows the doctor to see inside your body. With an endoscope, your doctor can operate or extract tissue for biopsy using forceps and scissors.

  3. Then the air is pumped through the endoscope into the stomach and duodenum to make it easier to see organs.
