Digestive Disease Center

Therapeutic Endoscopy Program

When you have a condition or disease that affects your digestive tract, doctors with Temple's Therapeutic Endoscopy Program specialize in providing minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures without using surgery. Using a minimally invasive approach may mean a quicker recovery and less risk of complications for you.

Endoscopy uses a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera attached (called an endoscope) that's inserted into the mouth, nose or rectum. Specialists can see areas of your digestive tract and perform diagnostic tests. They can also perform surgical procedures using devices passed through the endoscope. Our program's advanced minimally invasive procedures focus on helping you get back to living a full life as quickly as possible.

Temple is leading the way in developing and performing new and advanced procedures and treatments.
