Palmetto Endoscopy Center
Palmetto Endoscopy Center is a state-of-the-art licensed ambulatory care center that focuses on you and your digestive procedures. We perform colonoscopies for colon cancer screening as well as procedures to diagnose specific symptoms. For your convenience, we offer many on-site tests and procedures for a wide variety of symptoms. These incluse Bravo pH study and BARRX esophageal ablation procedures that relate to your esophagus and acid reflux/heartburn symptoms. The Smart Pill, Capsule Endoscopy, and BreathTek are additional tests available on-site.
This procedure provides the physician with a visual of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The endoscope is flexible and equipped with a small camera which transmits images to the computer for close evaluation. This procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis but does require sedation. In addition to a visual exam, the endoscope can also remove polyps or tumors for tissue sample biopsy.
Capsule endoscopy is a patient-friendly tool for visual examination of the entire small bowel. The video capsule contains an imaging device and light source at both ends and transmits over 50,000 images during the eight hour procedure. The patient is fitted with a sensor belt and data recorder to capture the transmitted images. The patient swallows the small capsule and is then able to resume daily activities. The patient will pass the small capsule naturally with a bowel movement (usually within 24 hours).
