      Colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination of the lower gastrointestinal tract. During this procedure, a flexible tube with a camera (endoscope) is passed through the anus to the large intestine to visually examine the mucosa. If necessary, a tissue sample (biopsy) will be taken. Colonoscopy is the only sure way to diagnose intestinal diseases.

      Patient tolerance for colonoscopy varies, therefore it can sometimes be performed under general anesthesia. If anesthesia is used, anesthesiologist will inject an anesthetic drug (that will put you to sleep) before and during the procedure into your blood vessel. In that case you will remain sleepy after colonoscopy for a while and must lie down for 30 to 60 minutes.

      Gastroscopy is an endoscopic examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract. During this procedure, a thin, elastic tube with a camera (endoscope) is passed through the mouth to the esophagus, then to the stomach, and then to the duodenum. During the procedure, the physician assesses the condition of the internal organs and, if necessary, takes a tissue sample (biopsy). Gastroscopic examination is painless but may be unpleasant due to gag reflex (pharyngeal reflex).

      Usually gastroscopy is performed under general anesthesia only in children. The physician performing the procedure will determine the necessity of anesthesia. If anesthesia is used, anesthesiologist will inject an anesthetic drug (that will put you to sleep) before and during the procedure into your blood vessel. In that case you will remain sleepy after gastroscopy for a while and must lie down for 30 to 60 minutes.
