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.

  • Esophageal Manometry
    This is an outpatient test that studies the entire function of the esophagus.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Portal Hypertension Surgery
    You may be a candidate for portal hypertension surgery where surgeons use a "shunt" to help relieve the pressure within the blood vessels.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.
