GI Procedures

GI Services & Procedures

Capsule Endoscopy:

A capsule containing a camera is swallowed by the patient to take pictures along the digestive tract not easily reachable by other procedures. (The capsule passes normally in the stool.)


Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP):

Uses an endoscope to visually examine the pancreas and bile ducts.


Endoscopic Ultrasound:

Uses an endoscope to examine the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, and then creates detailed pictures using ultrasound imaging.


Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR):

For people with Barrett’s Disease, this procedure uses an endoscope and the injection of a solution into the esophagus or stomach to raise and remove a lesion for examination.


Bravo® (catheter-free or wireless) esophageal pH monitoring study:

A small capsule is attached to the lining of the esophagus during an upper endoscopy to measure acidic reflux over a 48-hour period. The capsule sends these measurements wirelessly to a small receiver that the patient wears.  (The capsule passes normally in the stool.)


Esophageal 24-hour pH/impedance reflux monitoring: A catheter is placed through the nasal passage into the esophagus to record amount of reflux over a 24-hour period.


High Resolution Esophageal Manometry (Esophageal Mano):

A catheter is placed through the nasal passage to record the movement and pressures of the esophagus as the patient drinks small amounts of water.


Upper Endoscopy (EGD):

Uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera inserted through the mouth, following the tract to the stomach and upper small intestine, to look for bleeding, ulcers and inflammation.
