Understanding Gastroenterologist Procedures

Our gastroenterologists have over 50 years of combined experience.  We take pride in performing thorough and accurate endoscopic examinations.  Rest assured, as our patient, you are in safe, expert hands during your procedure.

In order to understand your procedure, brochures, provided by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), are available in our office. Below, you can find the same brochures for your convenience.
The following are the most common procedures we perform:

Esophageal Dilation:

Esophageal dilation is utilized to treat swallowing disorders. To read more about Esophageal Dilation,

Upper Endoscopy:

An upper endoscopy, also known as an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure that uses a thin
tube with a lens—an endoscope—to examine the upper part of the GI tract.  The endoscope travels down the esophagus and stomach, to the first part of the small intestine, the duodenum.  An upper endoscopy is performed to evaluate symptoms such as difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), chronic heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.  If our physicians determine that you are in need of an Upper Endoscopy, click here to read more about the procedure.


A colonoscopy involves passing an endoscope (colonoscope) through the GI tract to the large intestine (colon).
A colonoscopy is performed to screen the colon for polyps and colon cancer, and to evaluate symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding.  We will evaluate your symptoms and suggest if a colonoscopy is the right procedure for you.  To learn more about this procedure, click here.
