Painless Endoscopies

Your gastroenterologist may use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope to look inside your digestive organs during an endoscopy. Before the procedure, you’ll receive anesthesia to prevent pain and get a sedative to help you relax. Nurses with years of experience in endoscopies will make you feel comfortable. And because we use the latest tools, your endoscopy won’t take long, which means you’ll soon get back to your daily activities.
