Doylestown Hospital’s spacious endoscopy suite is conveniently located in The Pavilion medical office building adjacent to the hospital. Colonoscopy, a highly effective test used to screen patients for colon cancer, is performed in the endoscopy suite, as well as bronchoscopies to evaluate the lungs.
Our endoscopy suite includes 14 preparation and recovery areas that serve four procedure rooms. The suite is equipped with the lastest digital technology and designed to maximize privacy. A family member or a support person may stay with a patient during recovery.
Last year, Doylestown Hospital gastroenterology physicians performed about 10,000 endoscopic procedures including:
- EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy - upper endoscopy)
- polypectomy biopsy
- feeding tube placement and removal
