Putting the latest medical advances in GI care to work for you

The new Gastroenterology Center is continually investing in the latest technology to ensure that you receive the best and least invasive treatments for digestive disorders possible. These treatments include:

  • Two interventional suites with digital fluoroscopy.
  • Two endoscopic ultrasound systems used to diagnose and stage cancers of the gastrointestinal tract and lung.
  • HALO360 Ablation System used to destroy abnormal tissue in the esophagus and reduce the risk of esophageal cancer.
  • Nine procedure rooms equipped with advanced digital imaging systems with high definition technology; these systems are less invasive and provide a more comfortable method for diagnosing abnormalities within the digestive system.
