The Gastroenterologists at Manhattan Gastroenterology offer endoscopy screening in NYC (including bowel cancer screening), diagnosis and treatment for diseases that affect any part of the digestive system, from the upper oesophagus, stomach and small intestine right through to the colon, rectum and anus.
The term “Upper Endoscopy” is a medical procedure that lets Dr. Khodadadian visually inspect the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract. This includes your esophagus, stomach and duodenum, which is the upper portion of your small intestine.
Dr. Khodadadian, a best in class NYC gastroenterologist uses a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope for this procedure. The endoscope has a lens and light source on its tip, and it sends the video it captures to a video monitor so the GI doctor can view and interpret the images.
An endoscopy requires only mild sedation, while the small, flexible video camera is passed through the mouth into either the stomach or intestine to allow the gastroenterologist to identify problems in the gastrointestinal tract and, in some circumstances, remove abnormal growths.
