Endoscopy and Bronchoscopy
CarePoint Health’s Endoscopy Department is comprised of state-of-the-art endoscopy units equipped with a full array of services, including fluoroscopy. Our gastroenterologists are board-certified in gastroenterology and our nursing staff is nationally certified in gastrointestinal nursing.
Procedures performed range from screening colonoscopy to more complex procedures, including endoscopic ultrasound to diagnose and stage gastrointestinal cancers (especially pancreatic cancer) and ERCP for removal of bile duct stones and palliation of pancreatic cancer.
Bronchoscopy procedures are used to examine the inside of the airways to detect abnormalities such as foreign bodies, bleeding, tumors, or inflammation. Bronchoscopies are performed by our board-certified pulmonologists.
The Endoscopy Department currently holds the prestigious Endoscopy Unit Recognition Status accredited by the American Society of Gastroenterologists (ASGE) since 2009. The ASGE honors Endoscopy Units that follow ASGE guidelines on privileging, quality assurance, endoscopy reprocessing, and CDC infection control guidelines.
