Gastroscopy is a valuable diagnostic and therapeutic tool used to assess and treat various upper gastrointestinal conditions. By providing a clear view of the oesophagus, stomach, and duodenum, it enables doctors to identify abnormalities, perform biopsies, and address certain issues during the same procedure. With its minimally invasive nature and quick recovery time, gastroscopy plays a crucial role in maintaining digestive health and improving patient outcomes. If you have any concerns or questions, be sure to consult your healthcare provider, who can provide personalised information and guidance based on your specific situation.
