GI Procedures

Abdominal Ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasounds are often performed to get a look at the abdomen to identify the cause of pain, bloating, and other gastrointestinal symptoms.

Abdominal X-Rays

Abdominal x-rays are performed to get a look inside the body to aid in the diagnosis of GI symptoms like constipation, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

Anorectal Manometry

Anorectal manometry judges the response and strength of the muscles used to make a bowel movement when suffering fecal incontinence or constipation.

Argon Laser Therapy

Argon lasers use argon gas to emit beams of light to address many GI issues, such as dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures.

Capsule Endoscopy

A capsule endoscopy involves swallowing a pill-sized capsule with a camera and battery in it to get a movie-like view of the small intestine.

Colon Cancer Screening

A colon cancer screening searches for polyps and growths on the inner wall of the colon and rectum and can prevent and detect cancer early on.


During a colonoscopy, a scope is snaked through the anus and colon to find the cause of symptoms such as loose or bloody stool, GI issues, and more.


An EGD is a procedure where a scope is used to view parts of the digestive tract like the esophagus, stomach, and the beginning of the duodenum.

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection

Endoscopic mucosal is a minimally invasive procedure performed to extract tumors below the GI wall using an endoscope without a traditional operation.


An enteroscopy is performed to examine parts of the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine to find the cause of GI pain, bleeding, and more.


An ERCP is an endoscopic procedure performed to assess areas of the GI tract to diagnose symptoms like abdominal pain, pancreatitis, and more.

Esophageal Dilation

Esophageal dilation stretches out a narrow or obstructed section of the esophagus due to GERD, inflammation, or more, making it easier to eat.

Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry is performed to assess the contractile ability of the esophagus when experiencing regurgitation, difficulty swallowing, or more.

Feeding Tube Insertion (PEG)

Feeding tubes may be used if someone has lost the ability to eat or drink or to supplement nutrition if getting proper nutrition is an issue.


FibroScan uses specialized ultrasound technology to review the state of fibrosis and steatosis inside the liver to get a better idea of liver health.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A flexible sigmoidoscopy provides a closer look at the inside of the colon to identify the cause of symptoms like diarrhea, bleeding, pain, and more.

Gastric Emptying Study

A gastric emptying study is a series of X-rays taken after eating a small meal to help GI providers determine how long it takes to empty your stomach.


A HIDA scan uses a radioactive tracer to assess and help diagnose symptoms in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and other areas of the GI system.


An MRCP is a type of MRI that is commonly used to assess the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, and bile ducts; it is often used as a diagnostic tool.

Small Bowel Series

A small bowel series uses a type of x-ray called fluoroscopy and a contrast agent to allow detailed video images to be taken of the small intestine.


A sphincterotomy is a procedure used to treat anal fissures by creating a small incision to relieve the pressure on the internal anal sphincter.
