Capsule endoscopy is the most used to check for problems in the small bowel (intestine). These problems include bleeding and tumors. The test can also help diagnose Crohn’s Disease. This is a condition that causes inflammation, sores, and narrowing of the bowel. The test is done in our office.
Risks and Possible Complications
There is a small chance that the capsule becomes stuck in the bowels and does not pass out of the body. Your doctor will discuss these risks with you during your consultation.
