Common Gasterointestinal Procedures

Lower Endoscopy Services (Colonoscopy)

 

This procedure uses a flexible tube with a camera at the end in order to provide a clear look at your gastrointestinal tract. The doctor will gently pass the tube through the patient's rectum and throughout the colon, taking photos, retrieving samples, or cutting away abnormal growths. The patient will receive a mild sedative prior to the procedure.

 

Upper Endoscopy Services

 

This is similar to a colonoscopy, except the camera tube is gently inserted into the patient's esophagus to look at their stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract. Mild sedatives are used for the patient's comfort. Recovery can be done at home after a short time in our fully-equipped recovery room.
