Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a good way to examine the body from the inside. Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure used to examine a patient’s digestive tract. By using a small camera on the end of a long flexible tube, a physician can view your digestive tract to diagnose and sometimes treat conditions. Both endoscopies and colonoscopies are performed at GRMC to examine, diagnose and treat conditions of gastroenterological conditions.
