An endoscopy procedure allows your physician to visually examine your gastrointestinal (GI) tract using a slender, lighted flexible scope.  

Upper endoscopy (also known as EGD) includes an examination of your esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). Lower endoscopy, commonly known as colonoscopy, is performed to visualize the colon (large bowel).

Before the procedure starts, your anesthesia provider will give you medication to help you relax and keep you comfortable during your endoscopy procedure.
