Treatment & Procedures

Our varied and well experienced clinical practice takes advantage of modern Surgery Centers equipped with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for the management of everything from complex motility disorders and pancreatico-biliary diseases, to small intestinal conditions requiring Video capsule endoscopy.

We maintain highest standards on all our procedures and participate in benchmark quality reporting system to GI organizations on procedures that we perform. Dr. Mohiuddin has one of the highest rate of successful completions of all his patient procedures while maintaining one of the lowest complication rates in the country.

We specialize in the following procedures:

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy (koh-luh-NAH-skuh-pee) lets the physician look inside your entire large intestine (another name for the colon), from the lowest part, the rectum, all the way up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine, the terminal ileum.

Hemorrhoids and Band Ligation

Rubber band ligation is a procedure in which the hemorrhoid is tied off at its base with rubber bands, cutting off the blood flow to the hemorrhoid.

Upper Endoscopy

Upper endoscopy enables the physician to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine). Upper endoscopy is also called EGD, which stands for esophagogastroduodenoscopy (eh-SAH-fuh-goh-GAS-troh-doo-AH-duh-NAH-skuh-pee).

BARRX Procedure

BARRX is a procedure performed for the treatment of Barrett's Esophagus. The procedure is performed with an upper endoscopy. This procedure is typically performed with medication to ensure you are drowsy and comfortable during the procedure. Most patients do not recall the procedure even being performed.

ERCP

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (en-doh-SKAH-pik REH-troh-grayd koh-LAN-jee-oh-PANG-kree-uh-TAH-gruh-fee) (ERCP) enables the physician to diagnose problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. This allows physicians to perform advanced biliary endoscopic procedures such as stenting and the removal of bile duct stones.

Feeding Tube Placement

A feeding tube insertion is used to provide nutrition when patients have trouble eating. The device is inserted to make sure that patients receive the appropriate fluids and calories.

Video Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy (en DOS-skuh-pee) enables the physician to look inside the small intestine. The procedure might be used to discover a source of bleeding suspected to be in the small bowel, diagnose Crohn's disease or look for small bowel tumors or changes of celiac disease.

Esophageal Manometry

This procedure is performed to evaluate the way the esophagus contracts or moves. The test is indicated in patients that are having chest pain, a sense of food getting hung up upon swallowing or painful swallowing.

Esophageal pH Testing

Esophageal pH testing allows the physician to obtain a numerical score corresponding to the amount of acid that refluxes into your esophagus from the stomach. The procedure is used to more precisely quantitate the severity of acid reflux or to exclude it from consideration.

Anorectal Manometry for Pelvic Floor issues

Anorectal manometry is a non-invasive diagnostic test used to determine the performance of the nerves and muscles of the anus and rectum.
