St. Mary’s Endoscopy Center, located on the first floor of St. Mary’s hospital, provides high quality nursing care with experienced staff, state-of-the-art facilities and the newest technology for patients needing endoscopic procedures.
Endoscopic procedures use tiny digital cameras attached to a flexible tube (endoscopes), allowing physicians to see inside a patients’ gastrointestinal tract on a video screen. The cameras help physicians identify polyps, inflammation, ulcers and tumors, and diagnose gastrointestinal conditions.
Recovery time for these procedures usually lasts only 30-45 minutes. During this time and before the procedure, patients can relax in spacious, naturally lit private rooms with specialized nursing care.
