Advanced Endoscopy Program
We focus on diseases of the pancreas, biliary tract, and gastrointestinal tract, and evaluate patients with a variety of symptoms and diseases, many of whom require advanced endoscopic procedures. Our team members work closely with referring physicians to promptly perform procedures, consultations, and discuss management options. Using a multidisciplinary approach to complex conditions, we collaborate with pathologists, cytologists, surgeons, oncologists, and radiologists to deliver care.
Our endoscopic ultrasound program is among the largest of its kind in New England, and our experienced physicians perform approximately 1,500 procedures annually. This sophisticated procedure includes fine-needle aspiration of masses, cysts, and lymph nodes located in and around the digestive tract. This highly sophisticated technique is used to stage malignancies of the esophagus, rectum, and pancreas.
Other outpatient endoscopic procedures we perform include:
- Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), a diagnostic endoscopic procedure for the upper gastrointestinal tract
- Enteroscopy, an endoscopic procedure used to examine the small intestine
- Colonoscopy with difficult polyp removal
- Sigmoidoscopy stenting of the esophagus, duodenum and colon to treat obstructions
