Endoscopy - Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital
Examining the inner systems of the body can be less scary and more comfortable with the guidance of an experienced endoscopy team.
Using advanced technology in a patient-friendly setting, we perform minimally-invasive medical exams of the upper G.I., colon and lungs. Examinations include colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, bronchoscopy, and transesophageal echocardiogram.
These services are used in the prevention and treatment of many diseases, including colon cancer.
Testing is performed in one of two procedure suites, with an accompanying recovery bay equipped with four beds. Sedation and varying levels of anesthesia are provided for exams.
