Learn About Tests & Procedures
Digestive care services offers a full array of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy services for patients.
Endoscopy is the science of viewing the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and gallbladder with scopes that provide video and sonographic images of these areas. You may hear someone say they're having an upper GI or a lower GI procedure. In both cases, the physician uses endoscopy procedures to diagnose and treat problems in the colon and rectum.
Where are endoscopy procedures performed?
The gastrointestinal service area and laboratory (commonly called the GI Lab) is located on the ground floor of Truett Hospital.
The GI Lab consists of 10 procedure rooms and 24 rooms for observation, within the 18,000-square-foot department. This allows patients to remain in the same area to recover following their procedure.
