Endoscopy involves the use of fiber-optics (lighted tubes) to examine the stomach, colon, lungs or more to diagnose various problems. Common procedures include colonoscopy, bladder scans, urodynamics, bronchoscopy, gastroscopy and flexible cystoscopy.
Patients are sedated and are monitored for every procedure by registered nurses who are certified in advanced cardiac life support. When you have your endoscopy procedures done at Bothwell, you’re supported by the resources of a regional health center. Although complications are uncommon, you can have the peace of mind knowing an emergency team of trained medical professionals is always available. Because we are an accredited hospital, all of our equipment is sterilized according to the exacting standards of The Joint Commission.
