Colonoscopy

Using a video scope with image generation on a special medical-grade high definition monitor the whole large bowel, hemorrhoids and even portions of the small intestine are visualized with great accuracy. This procedure allows us to detect and remove some early cancers reducing the need for open surgeries and chemotherapy. It also allows for the detection of bleeding, inflammation, ulcers, scarring and other diseases of the colon and hemorrhoids and allows endoscopic treatment and definitive diagnosis in a quick and painless setting.

Upper Endoscopy (EGD)

Using a slightly thinner video scope – with image generation on a special medical grade high definition monitor – the whole esophagus, stomach, and a portion of the small intestine are visualized with great accuracy and allows endoscopic treatment and definitive diagnosis of ulcers, tumors, lymphomas, bleeding lesions, and inflammation.

ERCP

Using a specially modified video scope with image generation on a special medical grade high definition monitor the small intestine, papilla, and ducts (tubes) in the liver and pancreas can be visualized under fluoroscopy (x-ray) and allow for detection of diseases of the pancreas and liver such as stricture tissue in the ducts, tumors, and migrating gallstones.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Using a specially constructed echoendoscope.  We evaluate the patient’s pancreas and other portions of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract using sound waves to better understand from what layer of tissue these growths originate from.

Palliation of Advanced Gastrointestinal Cancers

  • We palliate obstruction of food pipe, stomach, small bowel, bile  duct & colon due to advanced cancers by the placement of stents at these sites.
  • We palliate pain due to advanced pancreatic cancer by blocking the Celiac nerves (Celiac Plexus Neurolysis) under endoscopic ultrasound guidance.
