Endoscopy Overview

We offer the following diagnostic and treatment procedures:

  • Colonoscopy - Examination of the interior surface of the entire length of the colon using a special viewing device called a colonoscope.
  • EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) - Examination of the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and upper duodenum using a small flexible camera (endoscope) which is inserted down the throat.

We encourage you to speak to your physician about scheduling your colonoscopy or other endoscopic procedures here at Ambulatory Surgery Center of Spartanburg in our friendly, patient centered facility.

 

Benefits of Colonoscopy Screening

Colonoscopy screening offers a combination of benefits that other colon cancer tests don't. Some of the benefits include the following:

  • You get to see what the inside of your colon looks like.
  • Any polyps that are present can usually be removed right then.
  • If all is well, most people can wait ten years before getting another one.
