The Division of Gastroenterology (GI) at Good Samaritan Medical Center concentrates on the diagnosis and management of the full spectrum of GI disorders through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The division addresses many disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.
One of its most commonly performed procedures, colonoscopy, is a critical screening tool for cancer and other diseases of the colon. Endoscopic procedures are also used to diagnose gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and diverticulitis.
Other procedures commonly conducted include flexible sigmoidoscopy, upper endoscopy endoscopic balloon dilation, placement of stents, control of GI bleeding, liver biopsy, placement of feeding tubes, endoscopy of the small bowel, and evaluation of the motility of the esophagus.
Good Samaritan is the only hospital in the Steward Health Care System with the Spyglass cholangioscopy system, which enables direct visualization and biopsy of the bile ducts.
The endoscopy department’s nursing staff has a great deal of experience in patient care areas such as the ER and critical care as well as endoscopy, and bring a wide range of skills and knowledge to the department.
