Endoscopy is a procedure that allows doctors to effectively 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 is also used during treatment stages to gauge the patient’s progress and determine the best methods of treatment.
This short procedure boasts a high degree of patient comfort and safety, which is even further enhanced by the presence of an anesthesiologist for all major endoscopy procedures.
