Individuals experiencing digestive issues, anemia, abnormal bleeding, or other issues with the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum may require an Upper Endoscopy, also known as an EGD. This minimally invasive procedure involves placing a long, thin, flexible tube, called an endoscope, down the esophagus. This tube has a camera at the end that allows your physician to view the lining of your upper digestive tract. Your physician views a monitor closely and looks for abnormalities and unusual growths, gathering tissue biopsies if necessary. The entire upper endoscopy procedure generally takes less than 30 minutes.
