Upper Endoscopy in Bluffton
Okatie Surgical Partners can perform an upper endoscopy in Bluffton, South Carolina for patients who are experiencing problems in their upper digestive tract, have a suspicious area that might be cancer, or for patients who have a digestive problem requiring treatment. This surgical procedure can typically be done as an outpatient procedure, with the recovery process being very minimal. During an upper endoscopy, your surgeon will visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube.
During your consultation, your surgeon will advise you on how to prepare for your upper endoscopy, and what to expect following the procedure. While this procedure can usually be done in an outpatient setting, you will be sedated and need to be driven home following your procedure. If your doctor has recommended that you receive an upper endoscopy, call us at (843) 558-8428 to schedule a consultation.
