During a colonoscopy, a thin, flexible camera is inserted into the large intestine to diagnose abnormalities or diseases in the lower intestine or colon.
An endoscopy is often known as an EGD. This non-surgical procedure allows your MMG Gastroenterologist to examine the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. Endoscopy uses a flexible scope with a camera and light at the end. Biopsies and treatment may also occur while using this scope.
