- Colonoscopy- The Colonoscopy is a common, safe procedure that examines the lower intestinal tract called the colon or large intestine. A flexible tube called an endoscope, is used to view images on a video monitor which will assist in identifying potentially precancerous growths, also called polyps, so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. The colonoscopy is an important tool in the prevention of colon cancer which is very treatable when caught early.
- EGD – The upper endoscopy procedure, also called an EGD, allows your doctor to examine the upper portion of the gastrointestinal tract. This includes the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). Your doctor will use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which has its own lens that will allow the physician to view the images on a video monitor.
- Esophageal PH Probe- The Bravo pH monitor is an oblong plastic capsule that houses a pH electrode and a reference electrode located on its distal tip, a battery, and a transmitter. The capsule is affixed to the esophageal mucosa at the time of upper endoscopy. The capsule continuously senses the distal esophageal pH and transmits the data via radiotelemetry to a pager-sized receiver worn by the patient. Data security is accomplished by digital data transmission and by encoding each capsule with a unique identification code.
