Hi......, - Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract.....It helps in the diagnosing the digestive tract disorders and thus helps in treating the underlying condition.....
