“I had such a great experience at the Meadowlands Hospital! From ER Registration to nurses, anesthesiologist to my doctor – everyone was very professional and nice but most importantly caring! This is what makes this hospital great!"
— Emma R., Meadowlands Hospital Same Day Surgery Patient, May 2017

“MHMC Staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. Nurses always made sure my bed was made and cleaned. I never knew hospital food could be so good. Great meals! Nurses were helpful – amazing staff. For my first C-section, there is no way I could have done it without my nurses. Thank you. Nurses made sure I was in no pain and kept up with me as much as possible. Everyone was friendly and polite. Staff made me feel like family and they honestly cared. At first I was very nervous because it was my first time in this hospital – after my experience I will recommend this hospital to everyone. One of the best hospitals I have ever been to – please keep up the good work!”
— Amanda R., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/Postpartum Patient, February 2017

Endoscopy

Endoscopy procedures help doctors detect and screen for colon cancer, diagnose stomach and gastrointestinal problems, find and remove polyps and tumors, and treat ulcers and other diseases and disorders. Endoscopy is the visual examination of interior structures of the body with an endoscope, a thin, flexible viewing instrument. It allows doctors to look for inflammation, tumors, infection, and bleeding – revealing problems that do not show up on X-ray tests and often eliminating the need for exploratory surgery. Types of endoscopic procedures include colonoscopy (colon area), gastroscopy (stomach area), and bronchoscopy (lung area). When necessary, the doctors may also use a variety of other methods available at the hospital, including X-ray, ultrasound, CAT scan, and MRI. These methods assist them in diagnosing or treating all other conditions.

Patients having endoscopy procedures are often sedated. MHMC anesthesia team assists with the procedures. Our patients receive their examinations in comfort with caring, highly specialized nurses and technicians who assist the physicians.

Endoscopy and colonoscopy are relatively painless examinations of the lining of the digestive tract using fiber-optic instruments, which also permit biopsies and polyp removal.

Here at the Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC) we are all about providing privacy and comfort for patients. Our cutting-edge technology and equipment, including the latest in infection control systems, help the gastroenterologists and pulmonologists perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures accurately and efficiently. Our patients often tell us that the dedicated, skilled endoscopy nurses and clinical staff help make their experience at MHMC a pleasant one.
