Upper GI Endoscopy
Due to the lack of an incision into a major bodily cavity and the lack of a prolonged recovery period following the surgery, it is regarded as a minimally invasive technique (unless sedation or anesthesia has been used). But a sore throat is typical.
-A treatment called an upper GI endoscopy, often known as an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy), is used to identify and treat issues with the upper GI (gastrointestinal) tract.
Your oesophagus, stomach, and the first segment of your small intestine make up the upper GI tract (the duodenum).
An endoscope is a long, flexible tube used for this surgery. On one end of the tube, there is a little light and a camera. You pass the tube through your mouth and throat. After that, it moves gradually through your stomach and oesophagus before entering your duodenum. On a monitor, video pictures from the tube are shown.
