Endoscopy information and locations in Mexico

Patient doing endoscopy
Endoscopy is a non-invasive procedure that allows doctors to see inside the body to find the cause of unusual symptoms, confirm a diagnosis, and perform minimally invasive surgeries on the gastrointestinal tract: esophagus, stomach, intestines, bile duct, rectum, and anus.
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.
