An endoscopy is an imaging technique that an Gastroenterologist doctor uses to see inside of the esophagus and stomach. It's a thin flexible tube with a light on the end. It's inserted through the mouth and down into the stomach. This procedure is only done when you're sedated. An endoscopy is a procedure that doctors do to see the digestive track.
