Some of the services we offer include:
Endoscopic Examination-An endoscopic examination is a medical procedure where the physician uses an instrument called an endoscope to see into the body. There is a chart that shows which type of endoscopes are used for which body parts.
Colonscopic Examination-This procedure will allow doctors to examine the inner lining of the large intestine. A colonscopic examination will help doctors determine why you may be experiencing certain symptoms.
Capsule Endoscopy-This procedure is used to record images of the digestive tract. The patient swallows a small capsule the same size and shape as a normal pill. Inside that capsule there is a small camera that takes the pictures as it passes through the patient’s gastrointestinal tract.
-Using sound waves, the doctor is a able to create an image of the digestive tract and surrounding tissues and organs.
-Using an endoscope, a small tube with a camera, a catheter is inserted into the affected area of the biliary tree (the system of bile ducts in the liver, bladder, and pancreas) and used to drain harmful secretions.
Abdominal Sonography-Using sound waves, the doctor is able to create an image of abdominal structures without being invasive.
Anorectal Manometry-A small balloon is inserted into the rectum and blown up to put pressure on the rectum and inner anal sphincter in order to measure the strength of the muscle.
Esophageal Manometry-A tube is passed through the nose, along the back of the throat, down the esophagus and into the stomach through the esophageal sphincter valve. Pressure is then added to the sphincter in order to measure its strength.
Esophageal pH & Impedance studies-A thin flexible tube will be inserted into the nostril and down the esophagus. It will measure pressure in your esophagus in order to place the impedance-pH probe. It will then be replaced by another tube that will reach the right place in your esophagus. The tube is fastened to the inside of your nose and connected to a data recorder that you will keep with you overnight.
Pathology Laboratory-Lab used for diagnoses and specific treatments of digestive diseases and problems
Hemorrhoid Treatment-Depending on the severity, the doctor may prescribe topical treatments or pads. Minimally invasive treatments include rubber band ligation (the use of tiny rubber bands put around the base of the hemorrhoid to cut off circulation), injection or sclerotherapy (a chemical solution is inserted into the hemorrhoid to shrink it), and coagulation (using lasers, infrared light, or heat that causes hemorrhoids to harden and shrivel). There are also surgical treatments for severe cases such as removal and stapling.
