Endoscopy is nonsurgical procedure used to examine person’s digestive tract. 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.
EGD (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a procedure that allows your physician to examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach and the duodenum (the beginning part of your small intestines). Your doctor will use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which has its own lens and light source, and will view the images on a video monitor to look for inflammation, bleeding ulcers or tumors.
Colonoscopy is a procedure used to see inside the colon and rectum, used to detect inflamed tissue, ulcers and abnormal growths. A colonoscopy also looks for early signs of colorectal cancer and can be used to diagnose unexplained changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, bleeding from the anus and weight loss. It is most often used to find and remove precancerous tissue (polyps) in order to prevent colon cancer.
RBL (Rubber Band Ligation) is used to treat enlarged veins in the esophagus, the tube connecting the throat to the stomach. If left untreated esophageal veins (varices) can spontaneously rupture and cause severe bleeding.
PEG (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastronomy) is a surgical procedure used to help those who are unable to take food in via the mouth. A feeding tube is placed in the abdomen. A gastrostomy is the surgical opening in the stomach where the endoscope is passed to help with placing and securing the tube.
Paracentesis is the perforation of a cavity of the body or of a cyst or similar outgrowth, especially with a hollow needle to remove fluid or gas.
