What Is Gastroenterologic Surgery?
Gastrointestinal surgery refers to the different surgical procedures performed on the digestive system and its various organs.
These procedures aim to repair, remove, or resection different body parts such as the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, colon, anus, and rectum.
Types of Gastroenterology Treatments
At Alpha Surgical Center, we specialize in the following GI surgical procedures:
This procedure involves examining the large intestine (colon) and rectum using a colonoscope – a long, flexible tube with a miniature camera attached to one end.
During the colonoscopy, the video images allow our surgeon to examine the colon for any abnormalities and collect tissue samples if needed. Additionally, polyps and other types of abnormal tissue found can be are removed during the procedure.
Esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD is a procedure used to examine organs in the upper GI tract, including the stomach, esophagus, and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), for any abnormalities.
Esophageal dilation is a procedure used to broaden a section of the esophagus that has narrowed.
Narrowing of the esophagus is most commonly due to scarring from acid reflux in patients with heartburn. However, it could also be due to rings of excess tissue, motility disorders, cancer, or scarring after radiation treatment.
Endoscopy-assisted GI marking is useful to help identify nonpalpable gastrointestinal lesions and before laparoscopy surgery.
