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.
