Endoscopy Suite

The Endoscopy Suite is an area where outpatient procedures are done endoscopically, this is a way to access the body with a flexible tube and through which small instruments can be introduced to perform different actions.

There are two types of endoscopy: diagnostic or therapeutic. The purpose of the first is to identify anomalies in the digestive system; the purpose of the latter is to directly treat an identified situation. 

The two best known studies are Panendoscopy (studies the upper digestive system: esophagus, stomach, duodenum); and Colonoscopy (studies the lower digestive system: anus, rectum, large intestine). In addition to being a quick procedure, for patient’s comfort these studies are always done under anesthesia.
