Gastroenterology treatment and services
We offer a wide range of services to treat gastrointestinal conditions, including:

- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)—A procedure used to examine the bile and pancreatic ducts.
- Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)—A procedure where ultrasound testing is used to provide images of internal organs.
- Gastroscopy—An outpatient procedure where a thin, flexible tube attached to a camera is inserted through the throat and used to view the small intestine and stomach.
- High resolution anorectal manometry—A technique that allows for a comprehensive assessment of anal and rectal movement.
- High resolution esophageal manometry—A technique that allows for a comprehensive assessment of esophageal movement.
- Percutaneous endoscopy gastrostomy (PEG)—A procedure where a PEG tube is inserted into the patient's stomach through the abdominal wall, usually for feeding.
One of the most common concerns for individuals experiencing digestive issues is the possibility of colorectal cancer. Our doctors and surgeons use early screening—including colonoscipes—and innovative procedures to prevent, diagnose and treat colorectal cancer.
If colorectal cancer is detected, our GI doctors will recommend a team of expert oncologists to provide an accurate diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan for patients.
