Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows physicians to better examine passageways and the inside of the organs, including the esophagus, stomach and colon. Our physicians use a device called an endoscope that allows them to look directly at a specific area to better evaluate and detect problems. They also use this device for taking biopsies and removing foreign objects from the body.
Endoscopy procedures can offer patients faster recovery, and many can be performed on an outpatient basis. Experienced gastroenterologists, surgeons, nurses and staff hold advanced certifications in endoscopic surgical and diagnostic procedures.
