Introduction – The Digestive System
Endoscopy is a non-surgical technique for examining the digestive tract. Our board-certified gastroenterologists use thin, flexible tubes fitted with lights, cameras and special tools at the tip (endoscopes) to assess conditions affecting your esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine or rectum.
Community Medical Center has a dedicated endoscopy suite with the sole focus of performing endoscopic tests and procedures as well as pulmonary procedures.
