Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is a service to diagnose and treat digestive disorders.  The endoscopic testing we perform to help obtain diagnosis includes:

• Colonoscopy - to look with a flexible lighted tube into the inner lining of your colon, through your rectum.  This helps find ulcers, bleeding, polyps and screening for colon cancer.

• Gastroscopy (EGD) - Alighted flexible tube is inserted through the mouth to examine the inner lining of your esophagus, stomach and duodenum.  This helps to diagnose and treat ulcers, inflammation, and gastric regurgitation.

• Flexible sigmoidoscopy
