We provide screening services for cancers or precancerous conditions of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, and colon. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases as well as fecal incontinence.
Services We Offer
A colonoscopy is an examination of the entire colon (large intestine) using a long, thin, flexible tube (colonoscope) with a camera on the tip. The most common goal is an effort to prevent colon cancer. Without any screening colonoscopy, about one in twenty people will develop colon cancer.
An upper endoscopy or EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a test performed with an endoscope, which is a long, flexible tube that is thinner than most food you swallow. The test allows your physician to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (the first portion of the small intestine).
InterStim Therapy for Fecal Incontinence
The InterStim Therapy for Fecal Incontinence is a treatment for chronic bowel incontinence. This therapy delivers mild electrical impulses to the sacral nerves, located near the tailbone and rectum. These electrical impulses target miscommunication of nerve activity between the brain and rectum that may be causing fecal incontinence symptoms. By stabilizing the nerve communication, the InterStim System gives the brain improved control over the bowel and anal sphincter muscles.
