Internal Medicine


Common Procedures 

  • Endoscopy - procedure used to visually examine the upper digestive system with a tiny camera at the end of a long, flexible tube. It is used to diagnose conditions that affect the upper part of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, and the first segment of the small intestine (duodenum).

  • Colonoscopy - a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum. A small video camera at the end of the tube allows the doctor to see inside the entire colon. This procedure investigates bowel signs and symptoms, screens for colon cancer and looks for more polyps.

  • Paracentesis - a simple procedure in which a needle is inserted into the abdominal cavity to remove ascites fluid (fluid accumulated in the abdomen, between the abdominal organs). It can be performed with diagnostic intent or for treatment if fluid retention.
