Medical Procedures at Texas Endoscopy

Colonoscopy - A colonoscopy is an endoscopic procedure where a long, thin, flexible tube or "scope" is placed into the rectum and advanced through the entire colon (large intestine). The scope has a light and a camera on the end of it which allows the physician to examine the lining of the colon. A colonoscopy may be performed to diagnose the cause of gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, bleeding, abdominal pain, or abnormal x-ray results. A colonoscopy may also be performed on an asymptomatic patient at age 50, or sooner depending on the patient's history, to screen for colon cancer and polyps.

Upper Endoscopy (EGD) - An EGD is an endoscopic procedure where a long, thin, flexible tube or "scope" is placed into the mouth and advanced to the duodenum (the beginning of the small intestine). The scope has a light and a camera on the end of it which allows the physician to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and first portion of the small intestine. An EGD may be performed to diagnose the cause of gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain, heartburn/reflux, difficulty swallowing, bleeding, or abnormal x-ray results. An EGD could also be performed on a patient with chronic heartburn symptoms to screen for changes that are associated with esophageal cancer.
