What Is an Endoscopy?

General endoscopy, also known as diagnostic endoscopy, refers to a medical procedure that involves the use of an endoscope to visually examine and evaluate the internal organs and structures within the body. An endoscope is a flexible tube with a light and a camera attached to it, allowing a gastroenterologist or other medical specialist to view the targeted area on a monitor in real-time.

General endoscopy can be performed on various parts of the body, depending on the specific needs and symptoms of the patient. Some common types of general endoscopy include:

  • Upper Endoscopy (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD) – Upper GI endoscopy examines the esophagus, stomach, and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It is used to diagnose and treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers, inflammation, and tumors in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
  • Colonoscopy – This procedure involves the examination of the large intestine (colon) and the rectum. It is primarily used for the detection and prevention of colon cancer by identifying polyps, abnormal growths, or other abnormalities in the colon.
  • Bronchoscopy – This procedure examines the airways and lungs by passing the endoscope through the nose or mouth. It helps diagnose and treat conditions such as lung infections, tumors, or obstructions.
  • Cystoscopy – This procedure examines the bladder and urethra to diagnose and treat conditions such as urinary tract infections, bladder stones, or tumors.
  • Hysteroscopy – This procedure involves the examination of the uterus and the cervix using a hysteroscope. It helps diagnose and treat various gynecological conditions, such as abnormal bleeding, colon polyps, or fibroids.

What to Expect at Our Surgical Endoscopy Center?

When undergoing a general endoscopy procedure, it’s a good idea to know what to expect. Before the procedure, you may be instructed to refrain from eating or drinking for a specific period to ensure a clear view of the targeted area. Upon arrival at our Towne Lake Endoscopy location, you will be prepared for the procedure, which may involve changing into a gown and having an intravenous (IV) line inserted for sedation or medication administration.

Our experienced medical team will carefully explain the procedure and its purpose, and answer any questions you may have. During the general endoscopy, you will be comfortably positioned and a specialized endoscope will be gently inserted through a natural opening or a small incision. The procedure is typically performed under sedation, ensuring your comfort and relaxation. One of our healthcare professionals will guide the endoscope through the relevant body cavity or organ, capturing real-time images that are displayed on a monitor.

If necessary, our medical team may perform additional procedures such as biopsies, polyp removal, or therapeutic interventions. Following the procedure, you will be monitored until the sedation wears off, and any discomfort or side effects will be managed accordingly. We will then discuss our findings, provide instructions for aftercare, and address any further concerns or questions you may have.
