Endoscopy is a medical procedure that allows doctors to examine the inside of the body using a specialized instrument called an endoscope. This instrument has a small camera on the end that allows doctors to see inside the body and diagnose a variety of conditions. Endoscopy is commonly performed by doctors who specialize in ear, nose, and throat (ENT) conditions.
Endoscopy is a valuable tool for ENT doctors because it allows them to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions without the need for invasive surgery. For example, an endoscopy can be used to diagnose sinus infections, chronic cough, and even cancer of the larynx or pharynx.
Endoscopy is a safe and effective way for ENT doctors to diagnose and treat many common conditions. It is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients can go home the same day. Recovery time is typically very short, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as a chronic cough, difficulty swallowing, or sinus pain, your doctor may recommend an endoscopy to diagnose the underlying cause.
