UPPER ENDOSCOPY PROCEDURES

An upper endoscopy can diagnose your problem!

An upper endoscopy, also known as an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy), is a procedure in which your doctor uses a thin scope with a light and camera to examine your upper digestive tract. The procedure at Mid-America Gastro-Intestinal Consultants can diagnose any problems you may be experiencing.

Upper endoscopy procedures can identify the causes of:

  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Bleeding

Upper endoscopy procedures can also identify inflammation, ulcers, and tumors, usually with more accuracy than an X-ray. Abnormalities that are detected during the procedure can often be treated via the endoscope. A narrowed esophagus can be stretched during the procedure if you are experiencing difficulty swallowing. Polyps and foreign objects that have been swallowed can also be removed.

The team at Mid-America Gastro-Intestinal Consultants is here to help you diagnose and treat problems associated with your upper digestive tract. Call the Kansas City digestive healthcare professionals at (816) 561-2000 and schedule your upper endoscopy today!
