Upper GI Endoscopy (Gastroscopy)
Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) is a procedure that is done when
the patient is usually placed in the left lateral position.
During this procedure a small flexible endoscope is introduced through the mouth and advanced through the pharynx, esophagus, stomach, and duodenum.
OGD is used for both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
The procedure is usually performed while the patient is under conscious or moderate sedation, although it can be performed with only topical anesthesia.
