Endoscopic Procedures

If you are experiencing abdominal pain or discomfort, consider visiting the board-certified gastroenterologist at East Cooper GI. We have offices in Mt. Pleasant, Daniel Island, and Summerville, SC. During endoscopic procedures, we will be able to diagnose certain GI issues, some of which include:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Ulcers
  • Inflammation/swelling
  • Cancer
  • Celiac Disease
  • Barrett’s Esophagus (precancerous abnormalities)

Your gastroenterologist at East Cooper GI will insert a flexible tube called an endoscope down your throat and into your esophagus. This method allows for the use of a tiny camera to show your doctor the condition of your esophagus, throat, and small intestine. This procedure will inform your doctor of any intestinal issues and will help to develop the next steps of your treatment. Endoscopic procedures may also assist during other treatments such as minor surgery or imaging.
