We perform the following non-robotic gastroenterology procedures:
- Colonoscopy – an endoscopic examination in which the large and small bowels are examined using a flexible tube with a camera attached that is passed though the anus.
- Esophagogastroduodenoscopy – an endoscopic examination (also known as an EGD) of the upper GI tract in which a flexible tube with a camera attached is passed through the mouth.
- Polypectomy – the removal of polyps, usually conducted during a colonoscopy or similar endoscopic examination.
