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.

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).

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.

Video Capsule

After ingestion, the SmartPill Capsule collects measurements of pressure, pH and temperature throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract. The SmartPill Data Receiver, which is worn on a belt clip or on a lanyard around the neck, captures and stores the test data collected by the Capsule.

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.

Solesta

SOLESTA is used for the treatment of accidental bowel leakage (also referred to as fecal incontinence) in patients 18 years and older who have tried and failed other "conservative" therapies such as change in diet, fiber therapy, and medications.

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.

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.

Sigmoidoscopy

Sigmoidoscopy (SIG-moy-DAH-skuh-pee) enables the physician to look at the inside of the large intestine from the rectum through the last part of the colon, called the sigmoid colon. Physicians may use this procedure to find the cause of diarrhea, abdominal pain, or constipation.

Paracentesis

Paracentesis is a procedure to remove fluid that has accumulated in the abdominal cavity (peritoneal fluid), a condition called ascites . Ascites may be caused by infection, inflammation, abdominal injury, or other conditions, such as cirrhosis or cancer.

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.
