Overview

We offer a range of procedures at South Brooklyn Endoscopy Center to help diagnose and treat gastrointestinal diseases. Click on each procedure to the left for more information.

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a safe, fast, and minimally invasive procedure, in which a trained physician uses a special instrument called a colonoscope to view the gastrointestinal (GI) tract; specifically the colon and rectum.

Colon Cancer Screening

According to the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

Endoscopy

An endoscopy often referred to as an upper GI endoscopy or upper endoscopy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to evaluate the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract.

Esophageal Dilation

In an esophageal dilation, a physician dilates, or stretches, a narrowed part of the patient’s esophagus. This may occur as a part of an upper endoscopy.

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Similar to a colonoscopy, a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy occurs when a physician needs to appraise the lining of the rectum and the large intestine

Upper Endoscopy

Sometimes referred to as upper GI endoscopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), or panendoscopy, the upper endoscopy occurs when a physician needs to appraise the lining of the upper part of the patient’s GI tract; including the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum.
