Our physicians are experts in performing diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies. An endoscopy is a non-invasive exam of the digestive tract using a small fiberoptic camera or “endoscope.” Endoscopies are typically performed under IV sedation in an outpatient setting, and last no more then 30 minutes.
The most commonly performed endoscopy is a Colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is the preferred method of colorectal cancer screening and prevention in the United States. Currently, colonoscopy is recommended every 5-10 years in average-risk individuals starting at age 50 (age 45 in African Americans). Most insurance plans will cover a screening colonoscopy as part of “heatlh maintenance” benefits. Please call your insurance provider for more details.

Wellbrook Endoscopy Centers are Joint Commission Accredited and have been endorsed by the ASGE (American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy).

EAGA offers the convenience of outpatient IV infusion therapy. If you require special IV/IM medications such as Entyvio and Remicade, these can be administered in our infusion center. Please ask your physician for details.
EAGA also offers one of the newest techniques in gastrointestinal imaging called Capsule Endoscopy. Capsule endoscopy, also known as “pill cam”, is the ingestion of a small disposable camera the shape and size of a pill (26mm x 11mm). As the “pill cam” tumbles through the gastrointestinal tract, it capture images and transmits them to a wireless receiver worn by the patient. The receiver is worn for roughly 8 hours and then returned to the office. The receiver is the uploaded into a computer program that in turn creates a video which is then reviewed by your physician. This technique is used to assess diseases of the small bowel and to investigate obscure gastro intestinal (GI) bleeding.
