An endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera on the end. Endoscopes enable specialists such as gastroenterologists, colon and rectal surgeons, and thoracic surgeons to see inside the body without surgery.

Endoscopes are used to diagnose various conditions. Physicians can also use endoscopes to treat and prevent disease by introducing specialized tools through the endoscope to stop bleeding, widen a passage that has narrowed (such as the esophagus), or snip off a polyp.
