Endoscopy

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is an important tool in the diagnosis and treatment of ailments related to the colon, large intestine, esophagus and stomach. Your physician can also recommend an endoscopy to investigate signs and symptoms. The Surgical Hospital at Southwoods utilizes high definition flexible endoscopes to visualize and screen for potential sources of inflammation, polyps, tumors and ulcerations that may lead to health issues if not detected and treated in the early stages of disease. Just as high definition improves the images displayed on your television, similar technology provides extremely clear, sharp images of the human anatomy to identify suspicious lesions and potential cancers.

Southwoods provides a variety of endoscopic services to individuals undergoing diagnostic or therapeutic procedures on an outpatient or inpatient basis. When combined with advanced techniques in anesthesia, your endoscopy procedure will be more comfortable, with a shorter recovery time than traditional medications used for sedation. With the right technology and expertise, you can trust Southwoods for your next endoscopy procedure.
