FAQ – DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

Endoscopy is a procedure that uses an endoscope to look inside the body to examine or treat organs. Endoscopy can aid in diagnosing problems affecting your esophagus, stomach, and small intestine.

Most endoscopes are hollow tubes with a light on the end and a small video camera. Patients are sedated for an endoscopy procedure. This allows your doctor to see your organs and make an accurate diagnosis or treatment.

We’re open Monday – Saturday, 8 am to 4 pm.

Appointments are scheduled in weeks, not months. We strive to schedule an appointment within two weeks at Canadian Place Endoscopy.

If you are a new patient at Canadian Place Endoscopy, please download, print, and fill in the forms and bring them to your appointment.

At Canadian Place Endoscopy, we specialize in Colonoscopy and Gastroscopy procedures.

The colonoscopy takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Colonoscopy is a procedure in which a doctor uses a colonoscope or scope to look inside your rectum and colon. The colonoscope will be inserted into the colon; however, you will be sedated. Your big intestine is where the colonoscope is implanted.

 

Small tissue growths called polyps that might turn cancerous may be eliminated during your procedure. Small tissue samples (biopsies) may be collected and submitted to the lab to ascertain the present condition. After the procedure, doctors will monitor you until your sedation wears off to ensure you are safe before leaving the clinic.

Although bowel preparation is unpleasant, it is necessary for a precise and secure colonoscopy.

Doctors will advise you on what to do before your colonoscopy.

 

A thorough bowel preparation entails:

  • Changing your diet
  • Drinking more water
  • Taking a bowel preparation (a strong laxative)

There are very few complications during or after a colonoscopy that may occur. Most often are:

 

  • Bleeding \infection
  • Gastrointestinal laceration

Following the procedure, fatigue and weakness might result from the anesthesia and bowel preparation.

Abdominal gas bloating may follow your colonoscopy and pass in a few hours after the procedure is done.

Occasionally, if polyps or tissue samples were obtained, you may experience minor bleeding.

For 24 hours after your sedation, you should avoid driving, using machinery, drinking alcohol, or making significant decisions. You will require a companion to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours until the symptoms have completely subsided. After 24 hours, the majority of people may resume their regular activities. We will deliver the procedure results to the doctor who ordered your colonoscopy.

The endoscope is a flexible tube equipped with a camera at the tip. It enters the upper digestive tract via the mouth and back of the throat. This enables the doctor to inspect the esophageal, stomach, and duodenal linings. The tube will not obstruct your breathing. At our gastroscopy clinic in Mississauga, the treatment takes about 15 minutes. A quick and safe gastroscopy is possible!

You could have a gastroscopy to find out what causes symptoms like:

  • Low iron level
  • Unusual bleeding
  • Indigestion or heartburn that won’t go away with medication or returns (iron deficiency anemia)
  • Experiencing trouble or discomfort swallowing
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Constantly feeling ill
  • Black stool or blood in your stool

During a gastroscopy in Mississauga, your gastroscopy doctor will take tissue samples (biopsies) and provide you with the most effective treatment.

The Gastroscopy procedure is safe and fast.

 

It is extremely rare for the stomach or bowel to be perforated during this procedure. An excision of polyps or a biopsy performed through the gastroscope is particularly likely to result in this problem. Bleeding may occur when a blood vessel is accidentally broken or the digestive system lining is torn. In extremely rare circumstances, problems with infection or sedation may occur.

As soon as you feel well, you will be able to leave the clinic. The air may be filtered to improve visibility, resulting in bloating and flatulence. In most cases, you can resume your normal diet shortly after the procedure unless otherwise indicated.
