The upper endoscopy procedure is used to find any signs of tumors, ulcers, bleeding, and infection in the upper part of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the stomach, esophagus and small intestine. This procedure uses a special tube and camera which are used to carefully guide a scope throughout the body, taking photos and giving our El Paso gastroenterologist a chance to evaluate visible signs.
At GastroCare of El Paso, we are highly trained at the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of digestive disorders, including pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, and vomiting. To discuss your symptoms and possible treatments, contact our office for an appointment.

Upper endoscopy procedures have been proven to be more accurate than X-rays in identifying ulcers and tumors in the upper GI tract.
At our office, we take most insurance plans and offer easy appointment scheduling with our board certified doctor. As a patient-centered practice, we carefully answer all questions about your procedure and explain your treatment options in detail.
