Endoscopy is regarded as a nonsurgical procedure performed with a purpose to have a closer and defined look into a person’s digestive tract. It is done using an endoscope; a flexible tube with a light source and camera attached to it. The clear visuals of the digestive tract of that person under diagnosis are displayed on a TV monitor.

During an Upper GI Endoscopy process, the endoscope is given entry through the mouth and through the throat into the esophagus. This allows the specialist to view the esophagus, stomach, and even upper part of the small intestine. Similarly, endoscopes can also be made to gain entrances into the large intestine (colon) through the rectum to examine the area. This procedure is called colonoscopy. A special type of endoscopy procedure called Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) allows the visuals of the pancreas, gallbladder, and related structures.

At Yashoda Hospitals, endoscopy is routinely performed for the following scenarios:



ERCP is a clinical procedure that enables the physician to diagnose health anomalies existing in the gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas.

Bile is a liquid generated by the liver that helps with digestion.

The gallbladder is a small, pear – shaped organ that stores this bile until it is further needed for digestion. Bile ducts are tubes that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder and small intestine. These ducts are called the biliary tree.

The pancreas is a large gland that produces chemicals that help with digestion and also secretes hormones such as insulin.

ERCP is primarily employed as a therapeutic procedure for treatment of diseases ofthe following:

A. Bile Duct:


B. Pancreas:


ERCP is a combination of X – Rays and an endoscope; Dyes are injected into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they become visible on X – Ray films.

The Gastroenterology Department at Yashoda Hospitals houses Endoscopy Units having dedicated machines with the latest technology to facilitate both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The endoscopic procedures are performed under the guarantee of the patient’s safety and comfort with proper monitoring 24x7 in parallel to ensuring the highest standard of medical care being delivered.
