Gastroscopy, which is a very important method in the diagnosis and sometimes treatment of stomach related diseases, is a very common examination. Technically, a bendable flexible tube with a camera at the end is advanced through the mouth and delivered to the stomach, and the inner surface of the larynx, esophagus, stomach and duodenum is evaluated with the image transferred from the camera to an external monitor. Presence of ulcers and gastritis, reflux, tumors and anatomical differences can be detected with this method. Sometimes it also has therapeutic properties such as removing small tumors or polyps and stopping bleeding, if any.


It is a procedure that takes about 5 minutes under normal conditions under the influence of a mild sedative drug. With the effect of the drug, the patient does not remember the procedure and does not feel pain afterwards. You can go home 1-2 hours after the procedure. Since the stomach must be empty in order to be evaluated, at least 8 hours of fasting and thirst is required before the procedure. Since the patient will be under the influence of the drug, it is recommended to come to the center where the procedure will be performed with a relative in order not to be alone on the way home. It is not recommended for the patient to drive on the day of the procedure.   _cc781905-5cf58d__cc781905cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ _cc781905-5cf58d__ccb-bb19358d__cf315315359cf5cf58d__cf31359
