803-395-2283

Doctor and nurse performing surgery.Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure that uses a thin,
flexible tube with a lighted camera at one end to help the
physician evaluate, and sometimes treat, a variety of
symptoms and conditions.

  • Bronchoscopy uses endoscopic technology called a bronchoscope to view and examine the lungs and air passages for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
  • Capsule endoscopy uses advanced endoscopic technology to examine the entire small intestine. Patients swallow a vitamin-sized capsule which is actually a tiny camera and light. As it moves through the intestine, the capsule transmits images to a data recorder worn at the patient's waist. The capsule is disposable and passes naturally with a bowel movement.
  • Colonoscopy uses a colonoscope to examine the entire length of the large intestine. The physician may also remove tissue for further examination or treat problems discovered during the procedure.
  • Esophagoastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a diagnostic endoscopic procedure that can be used to examine gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus to the stomach to the duodenum.
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a safe and effective way to provide food, liquids and medications directly into the stomach of patients who are having difficulty swallowing.
  • Sigmoidoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the last third of the descending colon.

Services are available by appointment and 24 hours a day for emergencies.
