Jefferson University Hospitals

Tests & Treatments

  • Capsule Endoscopy
    This diagnostic procedure entails swallowing a capsule no bigger than a vitamin that contains a camera to capture images of even the most difficult-to-reach areas of your digestive tract.

  • Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy has the ability to reach cancer that may have spread, even microscopically, throughout the body.

  • Laparoscopic Gastrectomy
    Unlike traditional stomach surgery, this procedure utilizes a series of small incisions to remove the cancerous part of the stomach.

  • Upper GI Series
    Your Jefferson physician may order an upper gastrointestinal (GI) series to obtain detailed X-ray images of your esophagus, stomach and small intestine to detect abnormalities that might explain symptoms indicative of digestive disease or cancer.
