What is a Colonoscopy?
A colonoscopy is a procedure in which the colon’s lining is inspected with a flexible instrument called a colonoscope. Your physician can visualize the lining on a television monitor, while you are comfortably sedated. Your doctor can use the procedure’s findings to help diagnose and treat several diseases affecting the colon.
What is an Upper Endoscopy?
An esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is an examination of the esophagus, stomach, and first portion of the small intestine (duodenum), which is performed with a flexible instrument called an endoscope. An upper endoscopy is used to diagnose a number of conditions of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including acid reflux, Barrett’s esophagus, hiatal hernia, peptic ulcer gastritis, H. Pylori infection, esophageal varices, and upper GI bleeding. Your physician will be able to make treatment recommendations based on the endoscopy findings.
