What is an endoscopy?

Endoscopy allows your doctor to visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera at the end of a long, thin, flexible tube. Endoscopies help physicians identify the causes of persistent vomiting, heartburn, nausea, bleeding, and abdominal pain.

What's the prep for an endoscopy?

Unlike a colonoscopy, you may eat and drink normally the day before, then fast for 6 to 8 hours before the procedure so the upper digestive system can clear.

Will I be awake for an endoscopy?

You will receive a light sedative before the procedure. You will be completely asleep but wake up quickly afterward.
