Lower Endoscopy Services (Colonoscopy)
This procedure uses a flexible tube with a camera at the end in order to
provide a clear look at your gastrointestinal tract. The doctor will gently
pass the tube through the patient's rectum and throughout the colon,
taking photos, retrieving samples, or cutting away abnormal growths. The
patient will receive a mild sedative prior to the procedure.
Upper Endoscopy Services
This is similar to a colonoscopy, except the camera tube is gently inserted
into the patient's esophagus to look at their stomach and upper gastrointestinal
tract. Mild sedatives are used for the patient's comfort. Recovery
can be done at home after a short time in our fully-equipped recovery room.
