Gastrointestinal surgery

Sometimes the only treatment for your gastrointestinal condition is surgery. If you require surgery, a gastroenterologist will work with a surgeon to help you get the most appropriate and effective surgery possible.

EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy)

Our experts regularly conduct EGDs, an examination of the upper GI tract from the esophagus to the first part of the small intestine using a fiber optic instrument. During the procedure, we sedate you so that they remain calm and relaxed during the exam.

You may need to schedule an EGD if you're experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Black or tarry stools
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Pain in the upper abdomen
  • Persistent heartburn

Colon health

Our dedicated gastroenterologists specialize in performing colonoscopies. Through a brief examination, we can detect colon cancer, which has a high chance of successful treatment if caught early. As a precautionary measure, we advise everyone aged 45 and above to have their colons regularly examined.
