Our Procedures

Bravo pH Monitor

If you suffer from acid reflux, heartburn, chest pain and other symptoms of GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disorder), your doctor may suggest that you have a pH test to determine the degree of acidity or alkalinity of your esophagus.

Breath Tests

There are a series of breath tests doctors use to diagnose a variety of gastrointestinal conditions. These breath tests include bacterial overgrowth breath test, fructose breath test, H. pylori breath test and lactose breath test

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that allows your health care provider to see the inside lining of the middle part of the GI tract, including portions of the small intestine. This procedure is chosen over an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy because the entire small intestine cannot be visualized by those procedures.

Colonoscopy

​A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine, also known as the colon. This exam is used to explore possible causes of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea and other intestinal problems. A colonoscopy is also used as a method of screening for colon cancer.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an innovative technology that combines endoscopy and ultrasound to study detailed images of the body’s internal organs. EUS is helpful because it allows a specially trained endoscopist to view entire gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine and rectum.

Endoscopy Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Gastroenterologists perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to diagnose and treat problems found in the ducts of the pancreas and gallbladder. Pancreatic ducts and bile ducts are tube structures that carry fluids in the digestive system to help break down food.

Enteral Stents

An enteral stent is a type of stent that is inserted in the digestive tract if you have a growth creating an obstruction in the esophagus, stomach, small intestine or colon.

Fecal Transplant

Fecal microbiotica transplantation (FMT) involves transferring of healthy bacteria from a donor’s stool to your intestine to restore the proper balance of bacteria in your intestine so your immune system can be restored.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Hemorrhoid Banding

If your hemorrhoids are highly symptomatic (bleeding), your doctor may recommend hemorrhoid banding. Hemorrhoid banding is a non-surgical and non-invasive, in-office procedure.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.

Variceal Banding

Variceal banding is one method of treatment for esophageal varices that are at risk for rupturing.
