    Diagnostic Procedures
    1.   Endoscopy Procedures

      Endoscopy is a procedure that utilizes a fiber optic video scope to examine areas of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, lungs and more. While the procedure can be used for treatment, it has grown in prominence as a diagnostic tool, since using endoscopy for diagnosis often lessens the need for exploratory surgeries. We work closely with your physician on all aspects of your care, including sedation.
