About Our Procedures

Share:

The training and experience of the endoscopist is critical to high-quality endoscopic procedures such as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), colonoscopy for pre-cancerous colon polyps, and colorectal cancer detection.1 The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) recommends endoscopy is performed by physicians who have completed formal training in endoscopy and who have completed a fellowship in gastroenterology.2

At The Endoscopy Center, all nine of our physicians have completed formal rigorous training (fellowship) in gastroenterology and endoscopy. All of our physicians are board certified or board eligible. Our physicians’ credentials can be found here. We maintain an ongoing Quality Management program, tracking quality data for the exams performed in our endoscopy centers. We benchmark our procedures and adverse patient outcomes against national quality indicators as defined by the ASGE, AGA and ACG.

We have a peer review program, and continuously review our physicians and monitor any complications in efforts to improve patient outcomes and the care of our patients.
