Endoscopy procedures are performed for patients suffering from stomach or intestinal problems. During an endoscopy, a doctor inserts a lighted, flexible tube called an endoscope into a natural body opening. A camera in the endoscope allows the doctor to examine inside the patient's body without invasive surgery. Many people know about colonoscopy, an examination of the entire colon and gastroscopy, a visual examination of the stomach.
The endoscopy staff are highly trained and dedicated to patient care. Nurses are experts in moderate sedation medications and develop the technical skills to care for a variety of patients with many different disease processes.
