Viewing the Inside Tract

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.

Where are endoscopy procedures performed?
The gastrointestinal service area and lab is located in Truett hospital, Suite 146. The lab consists of 10 procedure rooms and a 24-bed observation area within the 18,000 square foot department, allowing patients to remain in the same area to recover following their procedures.
