Upper Endoscopy

Upper Endoscopy is also known as EGD or Esophagogastroduodenoscopy. This procedure is done under sedation with specialty trained staff. The physician uses a short, flexible tube with a camera to visualize the lining of the upper gastrointestinal tract. This procedure is often used to diagnose symptoms such as persistent heartburn, bleeding, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing and unexplained weight loss.

Capsule Endoscopy

This is a patient friendly way to visualize your small bowel. The capsule is about the size of a multi-vitamin, which contains its own camera and light source. After the capsule is swallowed it will capture images of the small bowel as it travels through the small intestine. These images are transmitted to a recording device that is to be worn across the body for 8-12 hrs. There is no need for sedation and normal activities can be resumed during the procedure. After the test is complete the recording device is returned, a physician will interpret the results.

pH Monitoring

This is a minimally invasive test for the evaluation of heartburn or related symptoms. Our state-of-the-art testing system involves a miniature pH capsule, approximately the size of a gelcap that is attached to the esophagus. This procedure is done under sedation with specialty trained staff. During the testing period, information will be transmitted to a small receiver worn on the waistband. The testing period will last for 48hrs and then the receiver will be returned and a physician will interpret the results.

Esophageal manometry

Esophageal manometry is a test used to assess pressure and motor function of the esophagus. The test will help aid in the evaluation of how well the muscles in the esophagus work to transport liquid or food from the mouth to the stomach. This procedure can test for causes of gastric reflux, heartburn, difficulty swallowing and undiagnosed chest pain. The procedure is performed by a nurse and does not require sedation. During the procedure a small catheter will be placed through the nose and into the esophagus. After the data is collected the catheter is removed and a physician will interpret the results.


This is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes simple, gentle and effective technology treatment for low grade hemorrhoids. This short procedure uses low treatment temperature which minimizes tissue damage and has minimal pain.


Bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look at the airway through a thin tube called a bronchoscope. The physician will be able to examine the throat, larynx, trachea, and lower airway. This procedure is done under sedation with specialty trained staff.
