Endoscopies are a minimally invasive exploratory procedure used to look at the interior of an organ or cavity of your body - in fact, endoscopy means "looking inside". It's commonly used to explore the oesophaegus (throat), digestive tract and stomach.
An endoscope is a rigid or flexible tube, often less than 1cm in diameter. Patients are almost always under anaesthesia or sedation during the procedure. Endoscopy is exploratory, designed to give the surgeon information for use in a diagnosis or treatment recommendation, and such procedures often take less than 45 minutes.
