Advocate's approach to excellence in endoscopy
Advocate Health Care is committed to providing accurate, minimally invasive tests to better diagnose and treat disease. Endoscopy is one example: an advanced technology that uses a flexible, lighted tube to examine organs inside the body. Your physician may request this test to help identify health conditions affecting the stomach, esophagus, colon, and lungs.
We are skilled in performing endoscopic procedures for a vast range of conditions. Advocate also offers a breakthrough innovation called capsule endoscopy-a tiny pill-shaped camera that records thousands of images of a patient's small bowel.
Endoscopy is routinely performed to evaluate health issues such as:
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other digestive conditions
- Respiratory and lung diseases
Your patient care team wants to be sure you are comfortable before, during, and after your procedure. We encourage you to ask questions and give us feedback throughout your care.
