Gastroenterology
The Division of Gastroenterology provides diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients with disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. These services are offered on both an inpatient and an outpatient basis. The Digestive Diagnostic Treatment Center uses sophisticated technology and a variety of surgical and therapeutic options to treat patients with compassion and understanding.

Diagnostic services provided by this division include upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, proctoscopy, ERCP, esophageal motility, endoanal ultrasound, breath tests and the entire spectrum of standard endoscopic procedures, enterscopy (small bowel endoscopy) and Argon Beam Coagulation for coagulation of tumors and bleeding sites.

The division performs diagnostic manometric studies of the esophagus, rectum and sphincter of Oddi, as well as 24-hour ambulatory pH monitoring for patients with gastroesophageal reflux and for patients who may have asthma caused by aspiration of stomach acid. These data may also be particularly helpful in diagnosing patients with non-cardiac chest pain.
