Gastroenterology Services & Treatments
Advanced gastroenterology treatments
At Bronson, our skilled staff is dedicated to getting you back to living your life as quick and comfortably as possible. That is why they treat patients using the latest technology and treatment options that allow for less invasive procedures and surgeries with quicker recovery times. Some of these advanced treatments are:
- Barrx™ ablation – Barrx ablation is a procedure used to treat Barrett’s esophagus. It uses radiofrequency energy (heat) to destroy abnormal cells during an upper endoscopy. Once the abnormal cells are destroyed, new, healthy cells can grow.
- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – ERCP is a procedure that uses X-rays and an endoscope to diagnose and treat problems of the gallbladder, liver and pancreas, such as pancreatitis.
- Interventional endoscopy procedures – With interventional endoscopy procedures, a gastroenterologist can perform minor surgery while examining your digestive tract. These types of procedures can often lead to less pain and faster recovery than more invasive surgical options.
