Endoscopy information and locations in Mexico

Patient doing endoscopy
With the use of an endoscopy, gastroenterologists can do minimally invasive procedures on the esophagus, stomach, intestines, bile duct, rectum, and anus to diagnose uncommon symptoms, confirm a diagnosis, and locate the source of the symptoms.
Endoscopies are performed by a gastroenterologist or general surgeon with a two year fellowship in digestive endoscopy. During the procedure, the endoscopist passes through the mouth or rectum a thin-flexible tube with a light and a camera attached that allows seeing images of the digestive tract. If something is found, the specialist can take a biopsy or treat it at the same time.

Endoscopic additional procedures information
Gastritis
Gastritis, an irritation or inflammation of the stomach's lining, is typically caused by alcohol, stress, medications, infections, bile reflux, or Helicobacter pylori (bacteria). An upper endoscopy, in which the endoscopist (gastroenterologist) inserts the endoscope into the mouth to see the stomach lining, is used to detect gastritis.
GERD
A gastroenterologist using endoscopy can diagnose gastrointestinal disorders. A number of examinations and procedures, such colonoscopies, upper endoscopies, CT scans, and X-rays, may be part of the screening process. GERD, IBS, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, and colorectal cancer are the most common disorders.
Gastrostomy tube – G-Tube
A gastrostomy tube or feeding tube involves introducing the endoscope through the mouth to see into the stomach, then, a small incision is made on the abdomen to introduce the tube. A G-tube is recommended for newborns with birth defects of the esophagus or for patients who can’t swallow or can’t take enough nutrients from food.
