Procedures

These are some of the procedures performed by Center for Digestive Medicine

A colonoscope is a flexible and steerable instrument to evaluate the entire colon (large intestine). The large intestine is approximately 3 – 4 feet long. A colonoscope is engineered such that biopsies of suspicious areas can be obtained, and polyps (which may turn into cancer) can be removed.
Flexible sigmoidoscopy is a procedure in which a trained medical professional uses a flexible, narrow tube with a light and tiny camera on one end, called a sigmoidoscope or scope, to look inside your rectum and lower colon, also called the sigmoid colon and descending colon. Flexible sigmoidoscopy can show irritated or swollen tissue, ulcers, polyps, and cancer.
Is a non-invasive device that assesses the 'hardness' (or stiffness) of the liver via the technique of transient elastography. Liver hardness is evaluated by measuring the velocity of a vibration wave (also called a 'shear wave') generated on the skin.
A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a procedure for placing a feeding tube directly into the stomach through a small incision in the abdominal wall with the assistance of an instrument known as an endoscope. The procedure is performed as a means of providing nutrition to patients who cannot take food by mouth. Many stroke patients, for example, have poor control over their swallowing muscles and are unable to safely consume enough food, or they have muscle weakness that allows food to leak into the lungs when they swallow things by mouth. Many of these patients will benefit from a PEG tube in order to receive adequate nutrition and to prevent them from respiratory problems that develop when food or fluids accidentally gets into the lungs.
Upper endoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine).
Abdominal ultrasound is a type of imaging test. It is used to look at organs in the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys.

Benefits of Office Based Endoscopy

When patients choose to use our fully Accredited Office Endoscopy center, most find that the process is much more convenient, as well as more personal. Our center offers a relaxed environment with medical staff focused on offering individualized patient care. Our specialized staff helps each patient’s visit go as quickly and smoothly as possible
Since our center focuses on a limited number of procedures, most patients find that we are much easier to navigate than a typical hospital environment.
As an Office Endoscopy center, we are able to perform your procedure at the same high level of care with the same specialized attention, in an office setting. As an office setting, usually the only responsibility the patient has is their office copay (refer to your individual plan/policy for specific coverage/benefits) instead of the typical deductible and coinsurance charged when done at a facility such as an ASC or hospital
We follow the strictest infection control measures to ensure patient and staff safety so you can rest assured that your services are done in a safe, protected environment. If you have any questions about our center, please feel free to call or email us today.
