Expert Endoscopic Diagnosis of Digestive Disease
Endoscopy is a series of nonsurgical procedures that can both diagnose and treat problems within the digestive tract (such as a colonoscopy) or other internal organs. Endoscopy for both adults and children is conveniently located at all Inova hospitals throughout Northern Virginia.
The Inova Fairfax Hospital Advanced Endoscopy Center, unlike any other program in Northern Virginia, offers patients the most cutting-edge endoscopic techniques and high-definition technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases.
Endoscopic procedures are commonly performed to examine and treat problems in the esophagus, stomach, duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), colon and rectum. Endoscopy is generally performed on an outpatient basis by a gastroenterologist and does not require a hospital stay.
