Procedures: Endoscopy Of Stomach & Intestine

An endoscopy allows your doctor to view your esophagus, stomach and part of the small intestine. Here’s how it works.

An endoscopy procedure involves inserting a long, flexible tube (endoscope) down your throat and into your esophagus. A tiny camera on the end of the endoscope lets your doctor examine your esophagus, stomach and the beginning of your small intestine (duodenum).
