Tests and treatments

Screening colonoscopy 

A colonoscopy allows our GI doctors to examine the walls of the large intestine (colon) for polyps, inflammation and sources of blood loss. This study is the cornerstone of colon cancer screening and an important baseline for many people.

Upper endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD)

An EGD examines the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine. We typically diagnose ulcers, celiac disease and complications from GERD through this exam.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)

EUS uses ultrasound waves to examine a variety of internal organs and guide biopsy procedures to take tissue samples. Our doctors often use EUS to examine pancreatic, esophageal and rectal cancers and pancreatic cysts.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) 

ERCP uses endoscopy and real-time X-ray to evaluate and treat various diseases of the pancreas and biliary tract.

Extensive expertise

From simple screenings to complex treatments, our experts offer complete gastroenterology care for any health issue in your GI tract, liver or pancreas.
