Find Relief, Prevention, Early Detection at PRMC
If you struggle with chronic gastrointestinal discomfort or pain, life can be hard to manage. Our gastroenterologists can help you find relief. From gastroesophageal reflux to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), we use the most advanced tools and techniques to diagnose and treat all conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Our gastroenterologist is also experienced in the early detection and prevention of these conditions, including colon cancer.
Colorectal Screening Exams
A colonoscopy is recommended for everyone at age 45, or earlier for those with a family history of colon cancer. Early stages of colon cancer often don’t present any symptoms, which is why it is so important to get a colonoscopy screening to help detect and remove pre-cancerous polyps.
How do I prepare?
The preparation for these tests varies greatly, depending on the procedure. When you receive a call from our schedulers they will inform you what preparation is required for your test.
Diagnostic endoscopic procedures, such as colonoscopies, can be performed at PRMC. We have five pre/post-private rooms and two endoscopy suites on the third floor.
- Upper endoscopy (EGD)
Advanced Endoscopy Services
Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a lighted, flexible tool called an endoscope to see the inside of the upper gastrointestinal tract. This procedure can diagnose and treat several gastrointestinal conditions, including pancreatic and liver disease, gastrointestinal cancer, and gastrointestinal bleeding.
Our gastroenterologist uses the most advanced endoscopy techniques to deliver more accurate diagnoses and targeted treatments so you can feel quick relief from your symptoms.
