Introduction – The Digestive System
EGD (also known as Esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a diagnostic procedure in which the doctor examines the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (upper part of the small intestine) using a thin, flexible, lighted instrument (Gastroscope). Any abnormalities found may be photographed. The material may be obtained for biopsy and a variety of therapeutic maneuvers may be accomplished during this procedure. We use a special sedation technique that makes the procedure free from anxiety, discomfort or embarrassment.
Why do I Need an EGD?
Indications for EGD include dysphagia (trouble swallowing or food sticking), heartburn, indigestion, upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, GI bleeding (vomiting blood or black bowel movement), and investigation of small bowel disease.
We’re accredited by the Joint Commission to uphold the highest standards of patient quality care and safety.
