Tests & Treatments

  • Biopsy
    A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove tissue or cells from the body for examination under a microscope.

  • 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.

  • Gluten Free Diet
    If you are found to have celiac disease, the only treatment is to follow a gluten-free diet – that is, to avoid all foods that contain gluten.

  • Upper Endoscopy
    An upper endoscopy is a procedure that involves inserting a mini-camera attached to a tube called an endoscope down your throat to obtain detailed images of your upper digestive tract.
