“What is endoscopy?”

Endoscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient alternative to traditional surgery using only mild sedation. An endoscope is a small, flexible video camera connected to a TV monitor that allows physicians to diagnose, treat and screen for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and even remove abnormal growths.

PEG, or endoscopic gastrostomy, is the placement of a tube that goes into the stomach through the stomach wall. It allows food and drink to pass directly into the stomach for people who cannot eat normally.
