Gastroscopy is a procedure that helps investigate the cause of symptoms like abdominal pain, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting. A gastroscopy is usually performed under sedation so that the patient does not experience any discomfort. The procedure involves inserting a thin, flexible tube (endoscope) through the mouth and down the esophagus to the stomach. The endoscope has a tiny camera at its tip that allows the doctor to see the inside of the stomach.
The gastroscopy cost in Singapore varies depending on the hospital and the doctor performing the procedure.
