A doctor orders an endoscopy as an investigative measure to determine if any one of a numerous number of issues might be occurring which include: colon cancer or other cancers of the digestive system, inflammatory diseases, digestive pains, bleeding, diarrhea and other digestive issues.
The main takeaway is that an endoscopy can actually save your life and highly recommended to have regular checkups with a gastroenterologist to determine when you should have your next endoscopy.
When should I call the doctor after an endoscopy?
An office like the Office of Dr Sharam Daneshgar, MD will generally follow up with you within 24-48 hours of your colonoscopy to check in. You should however contact your doctor sooner if you are having severe pain, bloating or bleeding after a procedure.
Do doctors put you to sleep for an endoscopy?
Yes in general a certified anesthesiologist who works with your gastroenterologist will come into the procedure room to administer anesthesia to have you sleep during the procedure. You are asked not to drive to or from the procedure for this reason and always have a ride scheduled from the procedure center. Also, you should not drive at all that day.
Is endoscopy considered surgery?
A endoscopy is considered a medical procedure which is less invasive than most medical surgeries. They are usually done at a hospital or specialized endoscopic procedure center, such as our very own Oak Tree Surgical Center.
Absolutely phenomenal doctor!!! I have visited other gastronomic doctors for throat difficulties but Dr. Daneshgar was better by far. He really made me a priority as a patient and scheduled tests way faster and more efficient than any other doctor. It's too bad yelp has only 5 stars because this doctor deserves 10!!
