Our highly trained and experienced staff of gastroenterologists are able to manage the most complex gastrointestinal and hepato-biliary disorders using nationally accepted treatment protocols and state of the art technology. Procedures range from external imaging and CT-assisted biopsy, to retrograde cholangio-pancreatography.
Endoscopy is a commonly performed procedure that allows doctors to visualize, analyze and diagnose diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Using advanced technology, board-certified gastroenterologists are able to view a patient’s esophagus, stomach, intestines and colon and look for any abnormalities. Endoscopy includes colonoscopy, which is recommended to detect and, whenever possible to remove pre-malignant polyps.
Patient comfort and safety, are enhanced by the routine presence of an anesthesiologist for all major endoscopy procedures.
