Dr. Coronel may perform upper GI endoscopy in order to see the lining of your upper gastrointestinal tract to find the cause of an abnormal lab test, such as anemia or nutritional deficiencies, or identify different diseases, obtain biopsies or simply remove objects, including food, that is stuck in the upper GI tract. This procedure is often referred to as EGD, or esophagogastroduodenoscopy.
Upper GI endoscopy can help find the cause of unexplained symptoms, such as:
- Persistent heartburn
- Nausea & vomiting
- Difficulty swallowing
- Unexplained weight loss
It may also help Dr. Coronel identify diseases such as:
- GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- Celiac disease
- Inflamation or swelling
- Precancerous abnormalities
Dr. Mark Coronel performs this procedure while you receive light sedation, so you will not feel any discomfort during the procedure.
