Upper GI endoscopy is a procedure performed by a Gastroenterologist, an experienced Specialist who uses an endoscope to diagnose and, in some cases, treat problems of the upper digestive system, including the oesophagus, stomach, duodenum and small bowel.
The endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny video camera and light on the end. By adjusting the various controls on the endoscope, the gastroenterologist can safely guide the instrument to carefully examine the inside lining of the upper digestive system.

“After being a patient of Dr Engelman's for over ten years, I can say I have found one of the best doctors there is. He is thorough, proactive and consistently up to date. Always making me feel at ease, I would recommend Dr Engelman to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate gastroenterologist.”
