Gastroenterology Outpatient Surgery and Procedures

Banner Health is dedicated to providing an unmatched quality of service at both our inpatient and outpatient centers for gastroenterology.

What Is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology focuses on digestive system pain and disorders that involve the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, gallbladder or any other digestive organ. 

Common Outpatient Gastroenterology Procedures

All of our gastroenterology outpatient surgeries and procedures are minimally invasive and will have you home and resting a few hours after surgery.

Some common outpatient gastroenterology procedures include:

  • Colonoscopy, with and without lesion removal
  • A biopsy of an affected digestive organ
  • Colon cancer screenings for low risk individuals
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) biopsy and guide wire insertion for problems in the upper gastrointestinal tract
  • Colorectal screenings for high-risk individuals
  • Sigmoidoscopy and biopsy for any abnormalities in the lower part of the colon

Banner Health’s staff is dedicated to making your outpatient gastroenterology procedure as smooth and comfortable as possible. Talk to your doctor about what to expect during outpatient gastroenterology procedures.
