Conditions & Procedures | Upper GI Endoscopy

An esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD, also known as an upper endoscopy, upper GI endoscopy, or panendoscopy) is a procedure that enables your physician to examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, which is the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, and duodenum (the first portion of the small intestine), using a thin flexible tube with its own lens and light source.
