Advanced Endoscopic Procedures for Total GI Health
A healthy digestive system is essential for overall wellness. But modern diets, lifestyles, age and other factors can result in a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) system disorders that cause discomfort, pain, and even threaten long-term health. Providing effective GI healthcare has long been a challenge, due to the common symptoms many disorders present, and the difficulty of examining the interior of the GI tract. But today, modern endoscopy has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of GI disorders. At Great South Bay Endoscopy, our staff of highly experienced, board-certified gastroenterologists is dedicated to providing a complete range of advanced endoscopy procedures to patients throughout Suffolk County, performed with compassion in a comfortable and modern setting.
Upper and Lower GI Tract Endoscopy
Digestive system disorders and conditions can affect the upper GI tract, encompassing the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, the first section of the small intestine, or the lower GI tract, comprised of the large intestine and anus. Our specialized endoscopes can examine any portion of the digestive system. For common upper GI conditions such as peptic ulcer disease, acid reflux, or GERD, helicobacter pylori infection and others, an upper endoscopy can provide definitive diagnosis so proper treatment can be prescribed. For colon cancer screening and the diagnosis of a host of conditions affecting the large intestine, such as inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulosis, colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy provide effective diagnosis. If you are experiencing symptoms of digestive system problems that interfere with your health or quality of life, advanced medical help is now available. Call or email us today to schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified gastroenterologists.
