What is Endoscopy?
Endoscopy is a medical procedure that explores the inside of the body using a long, flexible tube with a camera and medical instruments at the tip. An endoscopy can often help your physician diagnose a health problem as well as possibly avoid the need for surgery. The tools on the tip of the tube allow physicians to take cells or tissue samples, stop bleeding and perform other procedures.
