Endoscopy

A variety of endoscopic procedures will allow specially trained doctors to see inside — and sometimes treat — parts of your digestive tract, lungs and pancreas without having to make an incision. The doctors use instruments called endoscopes.

An endoscope is a long, flexible tube equipped with a video camera and a light. The instrument is inserted through the mouth or anus.

Endoscopy may help your doctor determine what's causing signs and symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing, gastrointestinal bleeding and difficulty breathing.

John C. Lincoln's Endoscopy Program provides a wide range of advanced minimally invasive endoscopic procedures to diagnose and treat a variety of digestive and lung conditions.
