Our team at AZCDH keeps your digestive health in good hands. Our gastroenterology services include:
Critical to the detection and prevention of diseases, a colonoscopy examines the lining of your lower intestine for abnormalities. Having abdominal pain or chronic digestive issues? Using the insertion of a thin, flexible tube, our providers can view images on a video monitor to provide you with an assessment and proper care plan.
An upper endoscopy procedure examines the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus and stomach. Having heartburn or trouble swallowing? Much like a colonoscopy, our providers will use a thin, flexible tube to check on your upper endoscopy health and assess for any potential care needs.
ECRP is a specialized technique used to assess your liver, pancreas and gallbladder for any suspected issues. Using contrast dye, our providers will take an x-ray to identify your need for treatment — ranging from stone removal to stent placements.
An endoscopic ultrasound examines your esophageal and stomach linings, walls of the gastrointestinal tract and other surrounding organs — including the lungs, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Having abdominal or chest pain? Our providers will use this minimally invasive procedure to produce high-frequency sound waves to assess.
Radio Frequency Ablation
Radio frequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure using a catheter to remove diseased tissue from the esophagus. Our providers use RFA therapy as a safe, effective treatment for Barrett’s Esophagus — a complication of GERD.
One of our more innovative services, capsule endoscopy examines the lining of your gastrointestinal tract through a pill-sized video camera. If a traditional endoscopy is not identifying your condition, our providers can use capsule endoscopy to reach areas that are inaccessible for traditional endoscopy procedures.
