Diagnostic and Treatment Options

Endoscopy allows your physician to insert tools for imaging, surgery or other treatments into the throat, stomach, intestines or connected organs. With these tools, Temple specialists can:

  • Find and treat obstructions or blockages in the bile ducts or pancreatic ducts (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography or peroral cholangioscopy)
  • Conduct ultrasound and other imaging tests to detect and visualize problems in the digestive tract
  • Place stents to keep open the digestive tract and relieve blockages
  • Remove growths, including colon polyps
  • Perform non-surgical heat treatment of Barrett’s esophagus
  • Drain cysts or other fluid buildups
  • Perform fecal transplantation to implant healthy bacteria in the large intestine
