Endoscopy/Colonoscopy

What is Endoscopy and Colonoscopy?

Endoscopy and Colonoscopy are procedures that allow doctors to see inside your intestinal tract.

These procedures help diagnose diseases of the esophagus, stomach, colon, small bowel, liver and pancreas as well as digestive system disorders.

 

Colonoscopy

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States. It is estimated that one in nineteen Americans will get colon cancer during their life. A Colonoscopy screening is the best way to prevent Colon Cancer or diagnose it at an early age. It is recommended for men and women over the age of 50, and younger patients if they have a family history of polyps.

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that uses a tiny wireless camera to take pictures of your digestive tract. The camera sits inside a vitamin-sized capsule that you swallow. As the capsule travels through your digestive tract, the camera takes thousands of pictures allowing doctors see inside your small intestine — an area that isn't easily reached with conventional endoscopy.
