SERVICES

COLONOSCOPY
Colonoscopy is a procedure where your doctor uses a flexible camera to examine the lining of your colon or large intestine for growths (polyps) and removes them as part of a screening examination. If you have a symptom like bleeding or diarrhea, the colonoscopy helps your doctor determine if there is a change in the lining that could explain the symptom. Colonoscopy educational-video
ENDOSCOPY
Upper endoscopy is a procedure where your doctor uses a flexible camera to examine the lining of your esophagus, stomach, and first several inches of your small intestine (duodenum). If you have a symptom like bleeding or abdominal pain, the upper endoscopy helps your doctor determine if there is a change in the lining that could explain the symptom. EGD educational video
FLEXIBLE SIGMOIDOSCOPY
Sigmoidoscopy is a procedure where your doctor uses a flexible camera to examine the lining of the last 1-2 feet of your colon or large intestine. If you have a symptom like bleeding or diarrhea, the colonoscopy helps your doctor determine if there is a change in the lining that could explain the symptom. If a growth is discovered, tissue samples can be taken for analysis.
WIRELESS CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY
Capsule endoscopy is a procedure where your doctor uses a swallowed wireless camera to examine the lining of your small intestine. This special pill-camera, which has its own battery, light source, and lens, takes approximately 50,000 pictures of your intestinal tract. It creates streaming video that is wirelessly recorded by a recording device attached to a battery pack that you carry with you for a few hours. If you have a symptom like bleeding or anemia that could not be explained by colonoscopy or upper endoscopy, the capsule endoscopy helps your doctor determine if there is a change in the lining that could explain the symptom. http://static.sites.yp.com/var/m_1/12/127/11165380/426026-PillCam_SB_Patient_Brochure_(1).pdf
