About Our Endoscopy Services
Experienced Staff, Convenient Location Are Patients' Choice
Comprehensive care for Central New Jersey patients undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic gastrointestinal and bronchoscope procedures is the prescription filled by the experienced medical practitioners in Bayshore's Endoscopy Department, all with the goal of identifying potential health issues before they become serious.
With a multi-disciplinary team that includes physicians specializing in gastroenterology, proctology, pulmonology, bariatrics and anesthesiology, the Endoscopy Department is rounded out with a team of highly trained registered nurses and certified technicians.
Responsible for all its own pre- and post-procedure care, the Endoscopy Department is a convenient one-stop location for same-day procedures, receiving repeatedly recognized for its high level of patient satisfaction.
Housing three procedure rooms — one is a special negative pressure bronchial room —the Endoscopy Department provides care for outpatients, in-house patients and Emergency Room admittances, handling a variety of medical procedures that include:
- Anorectal Tests
- Small Bowel Enteroscopy
- Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy
- Esophageal Gastro Duodenoscopy (EGD)
- Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG)
- Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
High Definition Scopes
With its recent conversion to new high definition scopes for gastrointestinal procedures, the Endoscopy team can now achieve extremely clear views and improved visual contrast, imaging the digestive tract in greater detail to detect abnormal growths. This enhanced vision helps physicians to detect and remove problematic growths in the esophagus, stomach and colon, before they become cancerous.
Video Capsule Endoscopy
The Endoscopy Department has the latest technology for video capsule endoscopies, now offering 12-hour evaluation of the small intestine, all with a portable data recorder worn close to the body. One of the first hospitals in the area to embrace the original 8-hour camera-pill endoscopy, Bayshore is again a leader in upgrading to this more extensive 12-hour technology for capturing the inner workings of the difficult-to-reach small intestine.
Why Choose Bayshore?
Having a gastrointestinal procedure performed at Bayshore provides the reassurance of knowing that if a medical emergency arises, expert professional care is immediately available from the rest of the hospital staff. That's peace-of-mind that a stand-alone ambulatory surgical center cannot offer.
