Waiting family members receive a remote pager that gives them the flexibility to move about the hospital without losing contact with our surgical staff.

Endoscopy Services

Your doctor may utilize endoscopy to visualize various areas inside your body using an endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube fitted with a light and camera.  A number of endoscopic procedures are used to examine and treat certain conditions including:

  • Arthroscopy visualizes inside the joints
  • Bronchoscopy examines the airways and lungs
  • Colonoscopy examines the large intestine and rectum
  • Cystoscopy views the inside of the bladder
  • Enteroscopy studies the small intestine
  • Laparoscopy explores the abdomen or pelvis
  • Sigmoidoscopy assesses the lower part of the colon
  • Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (EGD) examines the esophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine, also known as the duodenum

For additional information about endoscopy services, please contact a member of our endoscopy team by calling (352) 521-1108.
