A colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine and rectum, used to investigate symptoms of intestinal distress and screen for colon cancer.

An Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EDG, is a short procedure that allows our team to examine your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. It takes less than an hour and you can go home the same day.

A specialty of St. Mary’s Health System, the video capsule endoscopy involves the patient swallowing a pill-sized camera that records images of the digestive tract. It’s used to find the cause of intestinal bleeding, examine the esophagus and screen for diseases, including cancer.

A Bravo pH Test may be needed if you’re experiencing heartburn, chest pain, coughing and more. The test measures the acidity of your esophagus, helping diagnose acid reflux disease.
