OUR PROCEDURES


We offer a range of procedures at our Waldorf Endoscopy Center to assist you and your physician in identifying an illness or treating a condition. Click on each procedure to the left to find out more information, including an overview of each procedure, what to expect, and how to prepare.
Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that allows your health care provider to see the inside lining of the middle part of the GI tract, including portions of the small intestine. This procedure is chosen over an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy because the entire small intestine cannot be visualized by
those procedures.

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine, also known as the colon. This exam is used to explore possible causes of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea, and other intestinal problems. A colonoscopy is also used as a method of screening for
colon cancer.

Endoscopic Ultrasonography

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) allows doctors to determine the extent of colorectal cancer. The prognosis of colon cancer depends on the stage of colon cancer at the time of detection. EUS helps doctors actually view what tissues are affected by the cancer and understand how far the cancer
has progressed.

Endoscopy Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Gastroenterologists perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to diagnose and treat problems found in the ducts of the pancreas and gallbladder. Pancreatic ducts and bile ducts are tube structures that carry fluids in the digestive system to help break down food.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Hemorrhoid Banding

If your hemorrhoids are highly symptomatic (bleeding), your doctor may recommend hemorrhoid banding. Hemorrhoid banding is a non-surgical and non-invasive, in-office procedure.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.
