Gastroscopy Fact Sheet

Gastroscopy is a procedure that enables your surgeon to examine the lining of the oesophagus (the gullet), stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). A bendable, lighted tube about the thickness of your little finger or ballpoint pen and contains a camera, is placed through your mouth and into the stomach and duodenum. The camera enables pictures to be relayed to the viewing screen.
