Gastroscopy Screening in Singapore
Gastroscopy is a procedure that helps a doctor examine the inner lining of the upper
gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the oesophagus, stomach, and the first portion of the
small intestine (duodenum). This is done using a long, flexible tube with a camera (gastroscope)
inserted through the mouth and threaded down into the stomach, with the purpose of diagnosing
abnormalities or providing certain forms of treatment.
Singapore gastroscopy can help to detect underlying upper digestive disease that are often overlooked as abdominal pain, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers, oesophageal stricture, coeliac disease, Barrett’s oesophagus, hiatal hernia, oesophageal varices, and stomach cancer.
