State-of-the-art Procedures: Colonoscopy, Endoscopy & More
At Evergreen Endoscopy Center, our gastroenterologists diagnose and prevent digestive disorders using state-of-the-art procedures. Combining extensive education with advanced training in gastroenterology, our South Windsor GI doctors will determine the appropriate diagnostic or therapeutic procedure you should receive based on your symptoms and risk factors.
Procedures we offer include:
Esophageal dilation is used to stretch your esophagus after it has narrowed or become blocked due to conditions such as acid reflux, scarring, or esophageal disorders.
During this therapeutic procedure, your doctor may use a local anesthetic on the throat or place you under sedation. A weighted dilator is then used to widen the esophagus. Dilation may also be performed during EGD.
During the procedure, deflated balloons are placed through the endoscope and across the blockage. When inflated, they stretch and open the blockage, which allows food to once again pass through the esophagus.
Anoscopy is a procedure that utilizes a high-resolution colposcope, or magnifying instrument, to examine the anus. It is used to determine whether there are abnormal cells that have the potential of turning into cancer.
During an HRA, the doctor will perform a complete rectal exam to look for anal dysplasia and other conditions and may obtain a biopsy as well.
