PROCEDURES WE OFFER

  • Colonoscopy: This procedure is used to detect colon polyps or colon cancer. During the exam, a long, flexible instrument with a video camera on the end is used. This colonoscope allows the gastroenterologist to view the lining of the colon.

 

  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography: ERCP uses upper GI endoscopy and X-rays to help identify gallstones, tumors, or scar tissue in the bile or pancreatic ducts.

 

  • Liver Biopsy: A liver biopsy allows our physicians to assess inflammation and fibrosis. A small needle is inserted into the liver, where a tissue sample is collected and analyzed for a diagnosis.

 

  • Endoscopic Ultrasound: An endoscopic ultrasound, or EUS, is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to examine the upper and lower GI tract, or other internal organs.

 

  • Sigmoidoscopy: A sigmoidoscopy uses a flexible tube with a light on it to evaluate blood loss or pain in the lower sigmoid colon, or bowel.

 

  • Capsule Endoscopy: In a capsule endoscopy, a small capsule equipped with a tiny camera is used. The photographs this capsule takes are then used to examine the small intestine for abnormalities.

 

  • Double Balloon Enteroscopy: This procedure allows a thorough examination of the small intestine. A special instrument known as a DBE scope is used. It can take video of the area, aiding the gastroenterologist in determining a diagnosis.
