In brief: Yes

And that may be sufficient.
In my opinion, deep sedation and monitoring provided by an anesthesiologist is more comfortable, effective, efficient and safer paradigm.

Sedation is typically administered for GI endoscopy procedures.
You should be quite comfortable during the procedure and in all likelihood remember little of it.
