Endoscopy

 


Since 1961, when Dr. David Giordano brought the first endoscope to Sarasota, the hospital's Endoscopy Department has provided quality, progressive care. The staff of specially trained physicians, nurses, and technicians care for patients using state-of-the-art technology.

Many Americans have gastrointestinal problems ranging from heartburn to swallowing difficulties and cancer. Chances are that you will experience some form of gastrointestinal distress during your lifetime. Some of the procedures commonly used in Endoscopy to diagnose and treat these problems include:
  • Colonoscopy
  • Gastroscopy
  • Endoscopic Retrograde
  • Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
  • Dilatations
  • Motility Studies
  • 24 Hour Ph Monitoring
  • Laparoscopic Liver Biopsies
  • Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

With improved images and the use of today's wide-screen TV's, video scopes and conscious sedation, patients find the experience much more comfortable than in the past.

The department is a self-contained unit, handling patients from admission to discharge. The department offers service eight hours a day, six days a week, to inpatients and outpatients. Services are available on an on-call basis for emergencies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
