Easy Upper Endoscopy: Once you're sedated, a tv camera on a thin, flexible tube is inserted through your mouth, & is passed gently into your esophagus, stomach, & upper part of the small intestine. Depending on the reason for the exam, biopsies may be taken for h.Pylori bacteria, celiac sprue, eosinophilic esophagitis, barrett's esophagus, polyps can be removed, bleeding can be controlled, & other samples collected.
