Endoscopy

Endoscopy

Located on the first floor of the main campus, the MIHS Endoscopy staff are highly trained and experienced with over 100 years of combined experience in providing services to adult and pediatric patients. Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Procedures are done on a scheduled basis for outpatients. Hospital patients are seen as indicated.

Endoscopy can be utilized to diagnose, treat, or determine the cause of the following: 

  • Stomach pain
  • Ulcers
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Digestive tract bleeding
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Colon cancer screening and screening of other digestive tract cancers

The MIHS endoscopy team has the ability to go to any unit of the hospital and perform necessary procedures. They work tirelessly to treat and address each patient’s needs.

 

Colorectal Cancer Awareness  

Colon and rectal cancers combined are the fourth most diagnosed cancers in the United States, and second leading cause of death from cancer. Colon cancer can be diagnosed with regular screening.  If you are a man or a woman age 50 or older, talk to your doctor about getting tested, even if you don't have any symptoms.  To learn more, open the American Cancer Society 2017-2019 Colorectal Cancer Facts & Figures.
