There is no doubt that the quality of your treatment can only be as good as the accuracy of your diagnosis. And because of this, we at The Gastroenterology Group of Northern NJ offer the most advanced and efficient diagnostic equipment and procedures available. This includes our Bergen County endoscopy, in the form or Endoscopic Ultrasound, or EUS.
There are a variety of essential uses for this diagnostic procedure. It allows our doctor to get the necessary detailed look at what is going on in your upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. Furthermore, if there is concern regarding your pancreas, gallbladder, liver, and lungs, our Bergen County endoscopy also is extremely valuable. And there is still greater benefit for EUS. Depending on the situation, it may be possible to obtain needle biopsies of the organs we mentioned earlier by doing it with EUS. The way that the procedure is done is that you put under sedation first. A thin, flexible tube (an endoscope) containing a state-of-the-art ultrasound probe is then carefully and gently used to get the vivid and detailed images required to make a diagnosis. You will be assured to know that our doctor has taken advanced training in this procedure so you are in the best possible hands. You will not need to have an overnight stay in the hospital just to have our Bergen County endoscopy performed. It’s all done on an outpatient basis. Of course, depending on the results of the testing, it’s possible that you may need more urgent treatment, but that is to be determined.
EUS is one of the various methods that we make use of here in order to help you to achieve and maintain a high level of gastrointestinal health and wellness. The more timely the testing, the more likely the outcome of your treatment is to be positive. To schedule an endoscopic procedure, all you have to do is call our office and we will take care of it.
