Colonoscopy - Colonoscopy is a procedure used to see inside the colon and rectum. Colonoscopy can detect inflamed tissue, ulcers, and abnormal growths. The procedure is used to look for early signs of colorectal cancer and can help doctors diagnose unexplained changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, bleeding from the anus, and weight loss.

ERCP - Enables the physician to diagnose problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. The liver is a large organ that, among other things, makes a liquid called bile that helps with digestion. The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ that stores bile until it is needed for digestion. The bile ducts are tubes that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder and small intestine. These ducts are sometimes called the biliary tree. The pancreas is a large gland that produces chemicals that help with digestion and hormones such as insulin.

Sigmoidoscopy - A procedure used to see inside the sigmoid colon and rectum. Flexible sigmoidoscopy can detect inflamed tissue, abnormal growths, and ulcers. The procedure is used to look for early signs of cancer and can help doctors diagnose unexplained changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, bleeding from the anus, and weight loss.

EGD - A procedure used by your doctor to gain more information about your esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. Your doctor can look at the insides of these structures by placing an endoscope (a small, bendable tube that acts like a video camera) into your throat. If any unusual growths or foreign bodies are found by your doctor, the endoscope may also be used to treat them.

Peg Replacement - A simple procedure involving the removal of the existing feeding tube and replacing it with a new one. It may or may not involve a gastroscopy, depending on the type of tube you currently have in place. A gastroscopy is an examination which allows the doctor to look directly at the inside of your gullet (oesophagus), stomach, and first part of the small bowel (duodenum). This is done by passing a narrow flexible tube through the mouth into the stomach.

Esophageal Motility Study - A test to assess motor function of the Upper Esophageal Sphincter (UES), Esophageal body and Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES).
