GI Procedures

Anorectal Manometry

Anorectal manometry is an exam that evaluates the response and strength of the muscles needed to perform a regular bowel movement.

Argon Laser Therapy

Argon laser therapy is a light-emitting device. It absorbs specific pigments and helps to heal GI problems like hemorrhages, dysphagia, and strictures

Capsule Endoscopy

For capsule endoscopy, a pill with a camera on the end is ingested. It takes pictures of the small bowel or intestine to help address GI symptoms.

Colon Cancer Screening

Colon cancer screenings evaluate the inside wall of the rectum to detect and remove polyps or cancerous growths, preventing potential complications.


A colonoscopy is an exam where a scope with a camera is inserted into the rectum. It examines the entire colon to address GI symptoms and cancer.


An esophagogastroduodenoscopy examines the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and the first portion of the small intestine to check for abnormalities.

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection

Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a procedure allowing for the extraction of tumors present just beneath the gastrointestinal (GI) lining.


An enteroscopy examines the esophagus, stomach, and small bowel. It is utilized to address GI issues such as abdominal pain, bleeding, and more.


Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a procedure that evaluates the esophagus, stomach, and more to check for GI issues.

Esophageal Dilation

Esophageal dilation is the process of stretching out (or dilating) a tightened or narrowed region of the esophagus to assist with swallowing.

Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry tests evaluate the contractile and relaxation function of the esophagus to help identify issues in the throat.

Feeding Tube Insertion (PEG)

Feeding tube insertion helps medication, fluids, and nutrition pass directly into the stomach when there’s trouble swallowing or consuming nutrition.


FibroScan is a noninvasive ultrasound test (transient elastography) that measures the state of fibrosis or steatosis present in the liver.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A flexible sigmoidoscopy is an endoscopic exam where a scope is inserted into the rectum to examine the colon and address troubling GI symptoms.

Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid banding (rubber band ligation) cuts off the hemorrhoid's blood supply at the base, causing it to wither away and drop off.

Infusion Therapy (IV Infusion)

IV therapy administers medication or fluids directly into the vein. It is utilized when oral or pill medications are insufficient or unavailable.


A sphincterotomy fixes anal fissures (small tears) in the anus. The anal sphincter is stretched to release tension, allowing the fissure to heal.
