Endoscopy is the field of medicine that examines the inside of the body to diagnose, evaluate, and treat conditions of the esophagus, stomach, and portions of the intestine. SIMS’s endoscopy department provides a one-stop approach for diagnostic and therapeutic gastrointestinal and bronchoscope procedures on an outpatient, in-house, and emergency basis.

SIMS Hospital recently added new equipment, including a video endoscopy platform with HD scopes and endoscopic ultrasound, to enhance the service for the most accurate diagnosis and disease stage information possible.

Using HD scopes for gastrointestinal procedures, physicians can achieve extremely clear views and improved visual contrast to help detect and remove problematic growths in the esophagus, stomach, and colon before they become cancerous.

In addition, this equipment has also been designed in a way in which it may also improve patient comfort during a procedure.
