Upper Endoscopy Procedure

UPPER ENDOSCOPY PROCEDURE  

You will be given a sedative to help you relax.  The staff will ask you to lie on your side and the physician will pass the endoscope through your mouth.  With the use of the endoscope, the physician will view the esophagus, stomach and duodenum areas. This procedure is considered only the slightest bit uncomfortable.  Often, many patients sleep through the procedure.
