Why is necessary to carry out gastroscopy?

Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy is an excellent diagnostic method for detecting, treating and monitoring the diseases of the upper part of digestive tract.

It is short  and painless, so there is no need to be afraid.

For the time being, there are no other methods that can replace gastroscopy.

This is not only a diagnostic method but it is also a therapeutic method, as some minor interventions can be carried out using gastroscopy.
