The Number One Defense against Colon Cancer

 

Our gastroenterologists diagnose and treat digestive tract problems including swallowing difficulties, stomach ailments, liver diseases, and problems affecting the intestines and colon.

In their work, they use a narrow, flexible tube with a light source and a tiny video camera at its tip, which is inserted into the body, giving a detailed look inside the digestive tract.

Comprehensive endoscopy services are available at both the medical center and Surgicare.

Exams include video-endoscopy, both EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) and colonoscopy; esophageal manometry; 24-hour esophageal pH testing; biliary endoscopy, and liver biopsy. To find out more about these and other endoscopic procedures, just click here.

 

 

Capsule Endoscopy

A breakthrough, noninvasive technology, capsule endoscopy enables gastroenterologists to “see” the entire twenty-one foot length of the small intestine.

The capsule endoscope is a pill containing a miniature video camera with a wide-angle lens, illumination, and a transmitter. Once swallowed, the camera snaps two images per second for eight hours as the capsule works its way through the digestive tract.

This technology helps identify diseases of the small intestine, which are typically difficult to diagnose using traditional radiologic or endoscopic technologies.
