Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Advanced Endoscopy Services at Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Cutting-edge care in the heart of East County
If you are experiencing issues related to your digestive tract, your doctor may order a nonsurgical procedure called an endoscopy to determine the cause. A tube-like instrument will be inserted into your body to look inside.
Endoscopies allow doctors to diagnose gastrointestinal issues and determine the best course of treatment. At Sharp Grossmont Hospital, we offer a range of procedures to treat conditions such as:
- Barrett's esophagus
- Dysphagia/achalasia (difficulty swallowing)
- GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- Pancreatic pseudocysts
- Tumors of the gastrointestinal tract (throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, colon and rectum)
- Strictures (narrowing or blockage of gastrointestinal tract structures)
- Zenker's diverticulum
We also offer advanced endoscopic techniques that allow doctors to treat a variety of issues affecting the digestive tract, including the most complicated cases. We are proud to offer cutting-edge procedures and exceptional care right in your backyard.
