Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

Gastrointestinal endoscopy also called esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). The purpose of this test is to identify any abnormalities in your esophagus, stomach and/or duodenum by passing a flexible fiberoptic tube through your mouth and down the back of the throat into the esophagus. The results obtained from this test may explain the cause of symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, reflux, or difficulty swallowing.
