Sharp provides flexible upper and lower endoscopy procedures, which are primarily used for diagnostic and disease screening purposes.
When a physician needs an up-close look at a patient's digestive tract, the most effective way to do so is through endoscopy. An endoscopic specialist uses a flexible tube with a tiny camera mounted at the end, which is inserted carefully into the body to view the esophagus, stomach, parts of the small intestine, the large intestine, colon and rectum.
Why Choose Sharp for Endoscopy Procedures?
- Endoscopic patients are treated by physicians board-certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, as well as highly trained support personnel and registered nurses
