Deaconess GI Lab
, located within Deaconess Hospital, provides comprehensive patient care for endoscopic and minor surgical procedures. The GI Lab houses three video endoscopy procedure rooms, a minor procedure room and an admission/recovery room.
The Endoscopy Department is also called the "GI Lab." We use specialized scopes and cameras to look into your gastrointestinal tract (from your mouth to your rectum and everywhere in between).
We can also conduct ultrasounds for your gallbladder and pancreas with the scope that we insert into your small intestine. We can get gallstones out of the duct that goes from your gallbladder to the small intestine (but not the gallbladder itself).
We can test to see if acid from your stomach is causing problems in the esophagus; and check to see if your esopaphageal muscles are working correctly.
We can take biopsies of the pancreas. We specialize in adult and pediatric patients.
