Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Endoscopy Services is committed to service excellence and top-quality patient care. An important part of this commitment is to inform you about our services.
Let’s begin by defining endoscopy. During endoscopy, a physician inserts a lighted, flexible tube with a video camera called an endoscope into the body. Guiding the endoscope, the doctor looks for problems and treats disorders. This is called a minimally invasive procedure, meaning it’s done without surgery.
Your doctor may prescribe endoscopy to:
- Screen for colon cancer (colonoscopy)
- Identify and treat upper gastrointestinal conditions
- Diagnosis lung nodules and other respiratory conditions
- Insert or replace a feeding tube
- Band hemorrhoids
