Gastroscopy: Comprehensive Testing for the Upper GI Tract
If you are experiencing uncommon abdominal pain, heartburn, persistent nausea, vomiting, weight loss or difficulty swallowing you deserve to find answers and solutions. Canadian Place Endoscopy works to provide them quickly, effectively and comfortably.
Treatments done with expert care and a gentle touch
Our highly trained and experienced endoscopists are specialists in the detection of upper gastrointestinal conditions.
We perform a procedure called a gastroscopy to examine the esophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine for any abnormalities, including:
- Precancerous Growths
- Bowel Obstruction
- Hiatas Hernias
Using the most advanced high-definition diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopes, we can find problems other physicians may have missed.
We know that most patients cannot tolerate the sensation of having an endoscope in their throats, so we provide conscious sedation in the form of Propofol. This gentle sedative lets you fall asleep quickly and wake up with none of the grogginess associated with other anesthesia.
The procedure usually takes 15 minutes and you can be in and out of our clinic within an hour. We may also use a local, liquid anesthetic to numb the throat to reduce the discomfort after the procedure.
We discuss immediate results as soon as the sedative has worn off.
