Gastroscopy is a somewhat unpleasant test. At Endomedix Gastroenterology Centres, you can request the examination under general anaesthesia, sparing you any possible discomfort and pain.
It is important to note that, unlike many other private endoscopy providers, we do not perform our reflections under anaesthesia, which is an outdated method, but we use the so-called propofol deep sedation, as our experience shows that this is the only way to ensure painlessness for the entire duration of the examination. The patient is then "asleep" in a much deeper state, with an experienced anaesthetist and an anaesthetist's assistant equipped with the appropriate equipment.
